If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse. (Jim Rohn, late author and motivational speaker)

No matter how busy we think we are, we do manage to find time to do the things we really want to do, don’t we? When we’re asked to participate in a venture we’re not particularly interested in, we will sometimes find a very creative way to say no. So, the choices we make about involvements will clearly demonstrate what is really important to us.

But they all began making excuses. One said, “I have just bought a field and must inspect it. Please excuse me.” Another said, “I have just bought five pairs of oxen, and I want to try them out. Please excuse me.” (Luke 14:18, 19)
