“Don’t burn your bridges,” is a very common saying in my country. It is usually advice given by an older adult to a younger adult, or a person farther along in a journey… On the surface, that is pretty sound advice. But on a sleepless and lonely night, it couldn’t be more horrible.
“Lord if you… I promise I’ll be…” “Lord if you… I won’t… anymore” “Lord if you … I will REMAIN.” How many of us have said this over and over? Just me? You need to repent if you just lied lol! But seriously, far too many times we give God the “if He then we,” empty promises. I’m here today to tell US to cut it out.
Please do not overlook the small and beautiful beginnings God is trusting you with. If you are faithful over small, He will see that He can trust you with more. But if you are dishonest with little, He will see that you will be dishonest with much.
