Don’t be that guy

“Yes,” said Jesus, “what sorrow also awaits you experts in religious law! For you crush people with unbearable religious demands, and you never lift a finger to ease the burden. Luke 11:46

Beating people over the head with scripture is rarely effective. The Word of God is not meant to crush us and add to the burden we already carry but to offer relief from the suffering sin creates in our lives. As believers we are meant to share God’s truth with loving, helpful motives.

Lord, help me to honor your word by only using it with a loving heart.
