I am really struggling right now with the fact that people in general disappoint me. I am trying to remind myself that there is only one who will never disappoint and that is my Lord! I am so discouraged by peoples choices... even when it seems so obvious. How can one be so entangled with sin and not care... or at least avoid anyone who might call them on it. Isn't it our job as the church to bare one another's burdens... those burdens are sin.. how can we do that if people don't acknowledge... I don't understand at all.
Ministry is so hard, you care about these people and you want them to Love the Lord and make the right decisions, but really there is nothing you can do to make them. This must be what some parents feel like.
