Choosing to Think

“The early morning belongs to the Church of the risen Christ. At the break of light it remembers the morning on which death and sin lay prostrate in defeat and a new life and salvation were given to mankind.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian Community

Choosing Not to Help

“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

Lord help me always evaluate my motives when helping others. May they always be pure and out of love. Always seeking to make space to genuially listen. To care without imposing my ideas or thoughts on what I feel is best. The wisdom to know when I need to act and speak, but also to know when I should not.

Very good reminder from Heath Plett. http://heatherplett.com/2015/04/when-is-helping-the-wrong-thing-to-do/
