I've Been Doing it Wrong

How do I teach them to be godly but not judge?

How do I teach them to obey His words but understand grace?

How do I convict them to be holy?

I don't. He does.

I teach them the Word.

He convicts their hearts.

I've been going about this all wrong. I'm trying to be their conscience - but I'm not.

I'm trying to change them- 
but I can't.

My job is to train and equip them.

God will do the rest.



  1. Oh so true. We can't do everything, especially because we can't control other people's thoughts and hearts. We can only do so much. We can teach people by "showing" them the way. It's up to them to follow the way. Surrender is the last step. Surrender to the One who can do anything. :)

    Have a lovely weekend, Rashel.
