We have to be careful when we are helping someone who is caught in sin. We have to gently guide them back to our Heavenly Father, BUT we have to be careful to not get caught in the net ourselves. Helping a struggling brother or sister requires us to be on firm spiritual ground ourselves. We have an enemy who would love to see us get caught up in the sin net and unwittingly end up leaving the restoring waters of our spiritual relationship with Jesus.
Where Do You Draw the Line?
A friend who lost a job, a spouse, a child, or a home. An acquaintance, a coworker, or a church member with addiction issues. Where do you draw the line between helping and enabling? This is a question that I have had to ask myself repeatedly over the years. Anytime I feel out of my depth(no pun intended), it is time to refer our sin caught friend to a professional.
