The Importance of Commitment

What are you willing to commit yourself to in your life?

Have you ever committed a pledge to a fraternity or sorority? Have you committed yourself to being a wife or a husband, a mother or a father? Have you ever committed yourself to a service club like Rotary or the Lions Club?

What is commitment anyway, and why is it important?

This will be the theme of this week’s worship at Stroudsburg UMC as we celebrate Commitment Sunday. On this day we present our financial commitments at the altar of God. We only do so after considering the current theme of “Money and Me” and examine why our finances tell a lot about our spiritual life. What are you willing to commit to God this coming year? Can you take a step in faith and commit more than last year? Just what are you willing to commit to your Lord?
