Daily Thought: No Exception Clauses

"And Jesus never left open the option of selective commitment.  There are no exception clauses.  You don't  get to say, 'I follow Jesus—but when it comes to this area of my life, I do things my way.' If you call yourself a Christian, by definition you are committing to following Christ with every area of your life.  It doesn't mean you will follow perfectly, but you can't say, 'I'm a Christian' and then refuse to follow Christ when it comes to certain people or places or practices." ~ Kyle Idleman, Not a Fan, pp. 146-47
