how many times have we had (and shared) an opinion about what someone else is going through? or better yet how they could do it better? there are relationships in our lives we allow candidness but those should be few and far between. if we do not have permission to speak freely–don’t! pray instead: for them and for yourself.
no wonder the bible says “pray continually,” [1 Thessalonians 5:17] this alone could keep me praying all day.
Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own. (Proverbs 26:17 NIV)
