judment and caring

Personally I feel like a magnet for people that need guidance towards God and I appreciate the opportunities to help get people on track, but then I see things like "hate the sin not the sinner" "only God can judge" Luke 6:37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven". These are the things that make me wonder if what I am doing is right when does caring and guidance become judgment? If you think about it you start to judge when you just don't care anymore. In order to guide someone down a difficult path you have to be there for them care for them and love them give them a better life then they had before they had a guide. Even if it takes years and they don't completely follow your guidance it's ok you haven;t failed. As long as you are giving them a way to get out of a current life style and encouraging them then you are doing more than most can say they have tried to do.

And even if you hate the sin and not the sinner you can not turn a blind eye and accept that sin. If you do this you don't help them strengthen their relationship with God all you do is leave them in the hole in which you found them. We are supposed to bring them up out of the hole and demolish that sin because when we take a sin out of one another's lives that is showing true love and compassion that we took the time and effort to show them how they can have a better and eternal life! Proverbs 3:5-6 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." This verse really helped me to write this post as did God because I prayed before I wrote this and asked God to guide my mind to share with you his teachings and this could help you or someone you know to get out of a maze and on to a path God created just for you and he knows it leads to the best prize any one could ever be honored with.
