I can’t say no to that. To her. To him.
I have to say yes. Isn’t that what good Christians do?
We often chain ourselves to “yes” because we want to make everyone happy. We think we can’t refuse an opportunity.
But Leslie Newman reminds us in our featured post this week that it’s okay to flip our “I can’t say no” to “Actually, I can.” I can say no.
And once we say “I can,” we are freed to do the more specific things God has called us to do. We can release our need to please people because we want to please God.
When we learn to stop saying, “I can’t say no” to people, we can say, “Actually, I can” more often to God.
