Commitment

We hear a lot about commitment. Maybe even more than we want, especially if it has resulted
In a failure or loss. People want to commit but do they really know the ramifications in which it
means to commit?
In a perfect world there would be no need of counselors, therapists or relationship gurus. Why?
Because everyone would live life as God had originally planned, but my friend I assure you we are
Nowhere near. Had the perfection that once dominated the earth been a reality today there
Would be no divorces and our court houses would be lacking in individuals.
To be committed to someone else one must first be committed to themselves. To some that may
be a peculiar statement to make but if you give it some thought human beings first see to
their our own basic needs and desires, then reach out to those around them. Everyday people
find themselves committed to someone, whether it is a spouse, child or a job. Somewhere
or somehow commitment plays a vital part in everyday life. If you are a Christian then you
are committed to Christ and his plan for your life. Commitment is a word with not many
Letters but needless to say it stands on its own merit bringing with it a very strong message.
We would do well to ponder the meaning behind commitment and just what it means to
Commit. The world is full of those who say they will commit but then fail to follow through
On their word, bringing with them a trail of tears falling from the face of the ones who believed.
Christ committed himself to the cross knowing that he would be the sacrificial lamb
In which the world could be saved. There is no greater commitment given by God than the
Gift of his Son. Let us remember commitment is a part of everyday life but it is also a gift
We give from our heart.

I love your last line! Commitment really is a gift we give to others, a choice we make to put them before ourselves. I really enjoyed this; perhaps the formatting could be a little 'tweaked' to make for easier reading, but overall it flowed well and raised very pertinent points. Well done.

Nicely done with a strong and powerful message.
God Bless you~

I enjoyed the message but had difficulty reading, since the formatting was off.
