An Excuse for Carnality

Dannah Gresh:  This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I remember being physically and emotionally wrung out during an intense speaking schedule. I'd become negative and hard to live with. And I justified my behavior because I was so exhausted.

Right at that moment a friend looked me in the eye and said, “Don’t let tiredness be an excuse for carnality.” That wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear at that moment, but it was just what I needed to hear.

You’re going to face some exhausting moments this week.  It may feel like you don’t do anything but make meals, clean up, take care of kids, pay bills, and fall into bed exhausted. It’s okay to admit that you’re tired. It’s right to cry out to God in desperation. It’s okay to ask people for help. But it’s not okay to sin.

When your energy ends before your to-do list, remember this: “Don’t let tiredness be an excuse for carnality.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
