What are you like at saying no? If someone asks you to take on a new role at church, at the sporting club or to be a part of a new ministry, do you find it hard to say no? Do you ever say yes, even when you know you shouldn’t do it or it is something God doesn’t want you to do?

I believe that there are times when we need to day yes and get involved, but there are also other times when we the answer should be a polite no. Saying no to certain things is part of setting good healthy boundaries for our lives. There are times when we are snowed under by work, by other family pressures or we need time to work through certain issues. It is in these times that we should say no and we should feel at peace with that decision.
