Dodgy Reasons

“Why do you call me, “Lord, Lord”, and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46)

“Sorry, I didn’t catch what you said. I don’t have much time to focus and there’s a lot of background noise right now.”

“Frankly, I didn’t grasp the relevance and importance of what you say to my life now or in the future.”

“Let’s think about which kinds of people this question most applies to. Some really need to hear this.”

“It’s too hard. I am not strong enough yet. Baby steps, right?”

“Stating my loyal association with you is enough for me. It comforts me to know you as a friend. Dare I say it, it satisfies my need for religion, acceptance, assurance about the future.”

“I must maintain relationship with my people; even the ones who also call you ‘Lord’ don’t take you that seriously. I would alienate them.”

“Obedience can wait; there is time. It’s a sunny day; there’s no flood coming.” (Luke 6:47-49)

“I have some excellent ideas that will glorify you, Lord. I am so excited to express my love in my way, Lord. And so many powerful things are happening in our group lately; we have such a sense of your presence, Lord.”

“Shhh now! Enough talk. I need to work on my study of Luke 6:46. I have some great ideas for a group discussion, perhaps even a section in a book.”
