We live in a disposable world where nothing is permanent and everything can be replaced at a moment’s notice. This truth not only pertains to material possessions. This truth applies to most aspects of our lives. People move into new homes and communities, on average, 12 times in their lifetime. After just a few years, many are considered “senior employees” at their companies due to turnover. We come and go from our friendships. Even many people’s marriages are on an “until I find something better” basis. Commitments are rare today. In this series, we are taking a look at commitments, particularly interpersonal commitments; commitments to our families, friends, churches, and God. The first message in this series introduces the concept by reflecting on the words of scripture as well as the famous Christian Danish philosopher, Soren Kierkegaard.
