“…but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will.” 2 Corinthians 8:5
Involvement Vs. Commitment
A pig and a chicken took an afternoon stroll that led them near their neighborhood Waffle House. They looked up at a sign in the window that advertised the daily special–Ham and Eggs for only $3.99.
“Look at that!” said the chicken. “I am involved!”
“It’s true that you are involved,” replied the pig, “but for me, it’s total commitment.”
On a team, in the office, or in church, we have lots of folks who are involved. But we don’t have enough who are totally committed; determined to get the job done, no matter what the personal cost. How about you? When it comes to your responsibilities, are you just involved or are you committed to give it your all for the good of your team, the group, and all concerned? Even more important, are you totally committed to do your best for the glory of God?
It’s time to be fully committed and fully surrendered to God. What’s holding you back? Let go and let God. Thanks in advance for joining the Team. Your friend and servant,
