My dear children, I’m writing this to you so that you will not sin. Yet, if anyone does sin, we have Jesus Christ, who has God’s full approval. He speaks on our behalf when we come into the presence of the Father. 2 He is the payment for our sins, and not only for our sins, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:1-2
You are responsible TO people, but God has not made you responsible FOR their joy. You may have children, siblings, or a spouse God has given you to love and nurture that seem uninterested in your testimony. Some people just refuse to be happy, so don’t let them steal your joy.
You cannot fix anyone, and you shouldn’t take the blame for everything that goes wrong in someone elses life. Obviously, you cannot make everybody you know believe in Jesus. But you can get up every day and do your best, and then trust God for the rest.
– Joyce Meyer
