U R not assigned 2 everybody!

“…When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. But when the Jews opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear of my responsibility. From now on I will go to the Gentiles."…”
© Acts 18:5-7, NIV italics and emphasis mine

As ministers, we often desire to help everybody from everything only ending up being hurt, burnt out, discouraged, in-effective and frustrated. The truth of the matter is we can't help everybody; in fact we are not commanded of the Lord or assigned to everybody in the first place. We need to know to whom we are assigned and to what specific areas.

But of those that you are divinely assigned to, you can only help those who would: 1. Acknowledge that they have problem, 2. Accept they need not only help, but your help and, 3. Be prepared to pay the price. Pride is the number one reason why we wouldn't acknowledge having a problem let alone ask for help. This is why God resist the proud but gives Grace to the humble…
