God doesn’t expect you to make the spiritual or moral decisions for other people. Neither does God expect you to give up your own gifts, talents, personality, and heart passion just to please another.
You are personally responsible for who you are and what you decide before God.
Accepting responsibility for your own choices, listening to what God has to say about you, and living out your own purpose allows those around you to discover God’s design for them. This freedom is one of the most significant gifts you can give those closest to you; the ones you influence daily. Then you and those you love can relax and enjoy serving God intentionally.
This is God’s plan. And it works.
How have you discovered this in your own life? I’d love to hear.
