Do you ever sap the healing power of Truth out of your life by qualifying it with buts?
“I know God meets every human need, but…”
“I know I should forgive my co-worker for botching the project, but…”
“I know my husband is a good person, but…”
“I know I should get up and do something productive, but…”
“I know I have many things to be grateful for, but…”
Those “buts” are not as innocent as they appear to be. They belie a lack of faith in God, they deny divine Love, they belittle truth, and they discredit prayer.
As one friend reminded me, “We don’t slide into heaven on our buts.”
