Duty – Day 4
September 13, 2018
Responding to duty separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls. Can you let go of what you would rather be doing and do something else?
Inventory Focus: Have you ever ignored or neglected your duties? What were the consequences of that? After my divorce, I was swamped by bills and not making much money. I hid those bills deep in a drawer. That didn’t help. I could still hear them calling my name from any room in the house. Is some duty whispering—or screaming—at you right now? Wouldn’t it be easier to just say yes?
