Commitment, so many are running scared when they here this word. I often wonder what make this word seems so dangerous to some people. If they only know how important and valuable this word is when you commit to the right thing or person, I believe that more and more would make a commitment.

Listen to the words from Marcus Tullius Cicero (c. 106 ~ 43 BC) “What one has, one ought to use: and whatever he does he should do it with all his might.” So the question is, are you using what you have, your gifts and talents and all you resources, and using them with all your might? Because it going to this and more to a seal stamp of approval when it comes to commitment.

Let’s look at this.

Building life is just like structuring a building. You want to build it so it can withstand from generation to generation, functioning and operating as normal. So when the wind and the rain come, it would never move from its position. Far to long, we have been given a picture of quick and fast, In and out with no expectation of a solid future plan, so when we here the word commitment, we go the opposite direction. However, there come a time when you have to stop running and committed to a certain thing or person.

This is just like being stabled in one place, unmovable and unshakable. Commitment will able you to grow into your habitation.

If you look at the scripture in Matthew 19:5 that said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ ?

Can two become one without being committed? How would one flash carry two bodies unless they committed to each other? Can two agree without any commitment, this is almost impossible?

A man and a woman living together in the same house without commitment is wasted time. One might say I don’t mind, and other might say, I am going along with the program, however when the time comes for a important decision, which will comes up from time to time, this will created an unhealthy situation. Who will be right and who will be wrong, Could you answer this?
