People live lives. They take certain directions. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. We do not see this or know why. We sometimes feel concerned.
What motivates that concern? Is it love for them or condemnation?
God loves us all. God knows us and sees the reasons why we do the things we do. God wants a broken person to return to him. God will do what he can to restore people. That is the reason Jesus came.
So when people are broken and are leading what we call a life that is not benefiting them, we are to love them and show them the person of Jesus.
A prayer for those who are looking.
Dear God, I am lost. My life has no purpose or direction. I have followed paths that are not good for me. I now look to you to heal the brokenness and hurt in me. Wash me clean. I am sorry for the wrong I have pursued, please forgive me. From this day forward, may I follow, love and serve you. In Jesus name. Amen.
A prayer for those who believe
Dear God, I have judged and condemned other because they are either different from me or taken a direction for their lives that I believe to be wrong. I am sorry. Please forgive me. If I am concerned for others help me to be a friend who is motivated by love. Always listening, understanding, and a helping hand in a time of need. May I be more like Jesus. Amen
