The first and most important thing to remember is to keep on loving that person. Your affection for the individual must always be riding in the background of your thoughts, attitudes, words, and actions. If you don’t have genuine care, whatever your words or actions may be, you will stain them by your frustration, impatience, or annoyance.
Heart - Person - Things - Something - Fear
It is imperative that you understand what is happening in your heart as you think about this wayward person. There are at least two things going on inside of you, and both of them have something to do with fear.
You’re afraid of how that person may end up.
You’re fearful of how they may respond to your help.
Perhaps you will not be able to help this person change, but you can always pray for them. It will be your “praying without ceasing” that will buoy your love for him (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And out of your humility, the Lord will give you the empowerment and insight to love him well (James 4:6).
Prayer - Caveat - Prayers - Others - Action
Prayer Caveat: Because we can be subjective in our prayers for others, it will be wise to let any “action steps” that may come from your prayer time sit in your mental incubator for a while before you act on them. Having a healthy self-suspicion, even about your prayer life, will serve you well. At times we can lace our prayers with what we want, which ends up damaging the relationship we want to help.
How many times have you...
