"Sometimes we feel something slightly unpleasant, but because it's so subtle, we just accept it; we don't do anything about it. We rarely notice when we cross that line from GENUINE CONCERN into a draining counterproductive state of OVER CARE. Intellectually, it's a tricky distinction that varies from person to person. But from the heart's perspective, it's not so hard to figure out; OVER CARE DOESN'T FEEL GOOD." -H. Martin-

:. To care is good, but too much is unpleasant. Let's be reminded that we are not the guardian of people's souls, God is. He is in charge, not the assistant. Our concern is okay however, if that is not guided by God, the product would still end up to SELF GLORIFICATION, clothed in good intention. For all moms, dads, leaders, bosses, girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters and friends let's learn to respect and let people be what they are, giving people space to make up their minds than forcing what we want for them, releasing more than holding, learning to wait and respect God's plan for them rather with our own impulsive interventions.

"We may think we are doing the right thing but the Lord always knows what is in our hearts."
Proverbs 21:2

Let's continue to share the gospel of freedom and grace, not the one that chokes. :-)
