And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we’ll be ready for him when he appears, ready to receive him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guild or lame excuses when he arrives. ~ 1 John 2:28-29 MSG

We live in a world where excuses are everywhere. And it’s precisely because excuses are so numerous that they are so ineffective. When we hear the words, “I’m sorry but...”, most of us know exactly what to follow: The Excuse. The dog ate the homework. Traffic was terrible. It’s the company’s fault. The boss is to blame. The equipment is broken. We’re out of that. And so forth, and so on.

Because we humans are such creative excuse-makers, all of the really good excuses have already been taken. In fact, the high quality excuses have been used, re-used, over-used, and abused. That’s why excuses don’t work- we’ve heard them all before.

So, if you’re wasting your time trying to concoct a new and improved excuse, don’t bother. It’s impossible. A far better strategy is this: do the work. Now. And let your excellent work speak loudly and convincingly for itself.
