Some Things Cannot Be Done

Have you ever heard it said that one can do what he wants to do if he wants to do it badly enough? There is truth in the saying, but the desire to do something is not the whole story.

Jesus taught that some things are not possible. According to Matthew 6:24, it is not possible to serve two masters. James wrote that one cannot be a friend of the world without becoming the enemy of God (James 4:4).

Try as one might to be a loyal servant of both God and the world, the effort is doomed to failure. All attempts to be friends with the worldly world are destined to make one the enemy of God.

Let us beware of attempting the impossible. Some things cannot be done.
