Do you want anyone punished for their sin?
Do you want anyone to suffer for what they have done to you?
Do you think yourself better than or more deserving than anyone else?
If you answered yes to any of the above, pray for love and mercy to flood your soul; not mercy for yourself but that you will have nothing but mercy and love for them.
Because the Kingdom principle always stands, “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy,” Matthew 5:7.
Always remember: What you send into the lives of others will be returned to you again! (Matthew 7:2).
Never never criticize, put down, judge, or feel in anyway superior to one who is where you once were. The only reason you are where you are now, is because you were first there.
How is it that you do not see and accept the process others are going through, yet you fully understood it for yourself.
Let them enjoy the delights of spiritual adolescent and help them endure the pain of their growth in every sector of their spiritual walk. When I have finished with them in the adolescent sector, they will begin to hunger for more.
If you have grown properly they will be drawn to you for mentoring in the next step. You will then be able to introduce them to the more of the kingdom and then move on to the next step in your own walk.
Always keep in mind that Kingdom growth is like natural growth. Infancy, childhood, adolescent, young adult, adulthood, and the goal, manifest sons of God!
You can look back and encourage someone to keep going, but never look down and try to force some one to come up where you are not, but think you are!
