Let them suffer


A person with great anger bears the penalty, but if you deliver him from it once, you will have to do it again.
Proverbs 19:19 NET

There are times it’s useless to help someone, and you can know ahead of time that your help will be futile.

The tendency is to want to save others from trouble. But in spite of the good will, there are times when it’s best to let them suffer. Some only learn until they suffer so much that they have no alternative but repentance. Others never learn.

Go dedicate your efforts and time to those who want to change their lives, draw near to God and be useful lin the Kingdom of God.

This thought was translated from our Portuguese-language site/list.

Do you struggle at times with how to, or not to, help others?

J. Randal Matheny

Be pithy.
