Truly this two letter word is going to carry some weight in your life as you continue to live. I thought about the many years I said yes to everyone. Nine times out of ten I just wanted to be supportive of a friend or organization, but I had to realize they were taking advantage of that at times. When I weighed my options it was not in my best interest at all. I was definitely a people pleaser.
When someone would ask me to sing I would say sure. Sometimes I never even received a thank you to show they appreciated my time, talent, and expenses it took for me to make that part of their event successful. I suppose a monetary token of their appreciation was truly a stretch for them. I realized I had to start placing value on my time, talent, and expenses and if they couldn't bless me to continue the ministry, then it was not important enough to them to have singing at their event. No don't get me wrong I am completely lead by God when to donate my time and talent. So when you think about using the three letter word YES, think again because it may just need to be the other way around... the anointed word NO!
