I have spent a lifetime “gently” trying to reach certain dear ones. They do not “hear” me. Certain ones snub me, and others just chuckle at me. They happily continue down “wrong roads” and then, for some, “life” begins to catch up with them. The consequences can be enormous.
LORD, have mercy!
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your body
And refreshment to your bones.
