There are things you can do for others and things you cannot do, and you must draw a clear line of distinction between the two. Your sympathy could cause you to cross that line and take on burdens that do not belong to you. Establish the boundaries that I have set for you by reminding yourself that you only have responsibility where you have been given authority (Burns). Luke 6:31 “And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.”
Stay blessed and a blessing!
