Is 98% Enough?
Is 98% enough? In school it's an A. If my kids bring home a 98, I'm thrilled. If I paid 98% of my power bill, the power company wouldn't be happy with me. Well, God leans towards the power company way of thinking. 98% of obedience is still disobedience. It is still choosing to CHOOSE your own WILL instead of GOD's and that's wrong. This is a hard pill to swallow. Pastor JD really punched me in the nose with these words today. I always felt that if I tried my best it would be good enough. In a way it is, as long as I am giving 100%. But most of the time my best is not truly my best and I blame lots of things for it. I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm only human, I can ask forgiveness later...all reasons for not giving 100%. Do you give 100%? We should all try harder to please God knowing that we still have His mercy but He does expect us to repent and turn from our wicked ways. I know I am turning a new leaf today. God be with me and I pray He is with you.
