Sometimes we use prayer as an excuse to avoid taking on our responsibilities. "I'll pray about it!" we say but really we can feel so inhibited to take on the things we need to get done. It may be the result of a lack of faith the we can get things done. It could be that we are just to lazy at times and prayer seems like an easier option. It could be that we just never learned to prioritize the right things first. Or maybe we are just too hedonistic and would rather put our pleasure ahead of our responsibilities. What could it be?
Well, the key to the word responsibility is the word RESPONSE! And that response must be tangible and practical and productive and what God wants for the moment.
