Compromised Resolutions

January 6, 2011


I have heard it said that our number one desire is to be accepted.  And out of that desire comes our number one fear, to be rejected.    For many, the fear of rejection will shut our mouths and stop us in our tracks.   Is there a need within you that for some reason has to be fulfilled?  As we aim high with our new year resolutions, what will tempt you into compromising worthy pursuits? What hinders you?

“Failure teaches us to not fear the contempt of others.  Success teaches us not to trust the applause of others.  When contempt and applause no longer move your heart to hide or strive, then you are ready to ask the question, ‘What will please you, God?'”  Dan Allender
