You can have the best of intentions but the wrong application. It’s important to be open to hearing God’s voice for direction in everything. For example, what may have worked for you as a child may not work for your children. You may show love by buying gifts, but your spouse receives love by spending quality time. Sometimes you may try to help, but it’s received as hurt. Everybody is different. You can’t have a cookie cutter approach to tackling all of life’s issues. If your application was wrong, it doesn’t make you bad … it just makes you ineffective, God knows your heart. Don’t wallow in the miss. We all miss sometimes. Just do better now that you know better.
John 13:17 – Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
