For some reason, your assignment seems to be everybody else’s business.
There are persons whom God has connected to your life for you to help to grow their character into a place of integrity, honor and dignity. Sometimes those connected to you want to give an opinion or be nosy in something that is of none of their concern.
They will try to question your walk, because of those whom God has assigned for you to help.
I don’t understand why some people seem to think that those whom God connects to you, are automatically their connections also!
God gives people their assignments and who He allows them to interact with, should not be a concern to anybody else, because it’s not their connection.
Some of those whom He connects have bad issues and their character is not to be desired; their reputation is messed up, but they’re connected by God, so you can train and teach them holiness and righteousness!
Never allow the opinion of others to make you deny or abort the assignments God gives you. If we are not careful, we will disobey God concerning those whom we are to help, because of these opinion and attitudes.
Remember, God connected you to the person and not anybody else. People need to stay in their lane and stop trying to dictate to others what God has called them to do.
Just because those connected to you don’t like who God has connected you to, should not stop you.
Do what you are called to do and you don’t owe anybody an explanation concerning your ministry business, if they are not part of the assignment!
Personally, I never let anybody tell me who to deal with, because my assignments are just that, my assignments!
Remember people, just because they are friends of somebody you associate with doesn’t mean they have to be yours!
