When GOD told Abraham he was going to have a son; Abraham waited what he thought was enough time; then because GOD said it, Abraham helped out by sleeping with this wife's maid servant to have a son. Moses was told he would lead the Israelites to the Promised land; and along the way Moses killed an Egyptian abusing an Israelite. Both knew what GOD promised, TIRED TO HELP TOO MUCH, without understanding. Do we, "For the Glory of GOD" "ENABLE" people to continue their sinful life styles by giving money or whatever they ask because we "think" it is the Christian thing to do? Our actions may "enable" or even encourage them to continue to repeat their life styles because they are "bailed out" over and over. Matthew 7:6, "Do not give dogs what is holy and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you." We are to be merciful, forgiving, and slow to judge. Yet, we are to wisely discern the true character of people and if the "Gospel" or WORD of GOD is adamantly rejected we are to move on. Luke 9:5, "...whenever they do not receive you...shake the dust from your feet and move on..." Yes, my "good intentions" SOMETIMES LEADS ME TO TRY TO HELP GOD TOO MUCH.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
