Doing your part.

C8DA0EA0-2412-48C6-9D25-70F44E5B2143

You’re drinking information from a fire hose these days. 

You feel pretty paralyzed about it.

You’re going to disappoint somebody. 

But you can still please God. 

***

As you’re working it out—

It’s okay to gradually process and ask God for wisdom. 

It’s okay to cautiously step while reserving the right to reverse course.

It’s okay to relinquish the need to have the most information or to admit you maybe just don’t know. 

It’s okay to concede that discretion looks different on all of us because personal facts differ for all of us. 

It’s okay to say you changed your mind or you’re still working it out or you’re just being careful. 

It’s okay to care equally about potentially opposing issues. 

It’s okay to give grace and accept there is probably something you don’t know about their situation. 

It’s okay to gently remind yourself that they probably don’t know about your situation either. 

Be less concerned with how this looks and more concerned about your heart. 

It’s the humility and love of Jesus that will carry us through this intact. 

***

Are you staying close to Jesus?

Are you loving others? 

Are you trying? 

Then you’re doing your part. 

“Jesus replied, ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:37-40 NLT.
