A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:5 The Holy Bible, The New King James Version
Discretion the quality of having or showing discernment or good judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary
Yes, we are to lend in the appropriate way in the appropriate time. We are not to be suckers.
The first time you bail someone out that is mercy. The second time is abuse. Bailing out the second time prevents them from maturing by taking consequences for thier actions. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole
Now how are we to gain wisdom to make good judgement?
Of course we go to The Answer Man, He knows everything.
And who is this Answer Man?
The wisest of all, Jehovah. He knows everything.
And how do we know His answer for us?
“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” -Elisabeth Elliot
A wise man waits and pray for three days as well as reads his Bible. Jehovah always answers those who have faith in Him, which means to trust Him.
We must also be patient because Jehovah answers in His time, In His way.
I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life.
Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) guide me to share my time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever You direct me to so as to bring You glory and honour. And, to bring the little lost sheep to You. Please protect me from the abusive wolves who only want to make a sucker out of me. I humbly ask this in the name of He who gave His life for mine, Jesus Christ. Amen .
I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah
