Stop Enabling Others
- 2018 19 Jun
There are those around you who need a helping hand. There are also those who ask for a helping hand but who should be stretching themselves to care for their own problems. Scripture says, “Let each one carry their own loa.” (Galatians 6:5). Carrying the load for someone when they should be stretching, growing and maturing does them no good, and in fact enables them to remain weak. Consider using good boundaries and wisdom when deciding who to help and how to help them.
