THINGS NOT TO DO


 

 
Don't stew and sweat over things you have no control over.

Unless you are a paid professional don't try to solve other people's problem. 

Don't go any farther than to listen and try to offer comfort to people with problems.  

Best to be very slow to give advice to troubled people. 

Troubled people will often take good advice and misapply it. Then blame the one who tried to help them. 

Beware of people who are problem inclined. Even if you bail them out they will soon be entangled in another situation and expect you to help them again. 

Don't let your compassion over rule your common sense when people try to dump their erroneous choices on you. 

Matthew 7:6 “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls (good advice) before swine, or they will trample them (it) under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Ignore everything I just told you for you won't be satisfied unless you meddle into other people's business.
