A READER ASKS
“Dear Lord, I’ve finally realized the difference between being there for people and being a doormat, but the only way I can turn down coworkers and friends who ask too much is by inwardly convincing myself they’re only out to take advantage of me. It’s like I can’t find the strength to stand up to them unless I label them ‘bad.’ Please help!”
—Isaiah 40:29 NKJV
Wisdom of the Word He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. We understand and yet… It can be tough to draw a truly loving line with others. Our soft hearts lead us to overcommit, so we harden them in order to say no. What is a better way?
