At one time or another, we have all had the expectations of someone doing what we said do. In others words, we were expecting others to live by what we say — well, that’s controlling.
We have no right to the lives of others. Every last one of us are borrowed, we are loaned to one another. We belong to God, and our lives should be lived according to the word of God, by His words, not controlled by others.
There’s nothing wrong with giving your opinion, or giving good advice, but it’s wrong to be controlling.
Remember, man will live by every word that come out of the mouth of God. Therefore, whatever you say, going forward, let it be with grace.
Proverbs 21:2 (KJV) – every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.
Matthew: 4:4 (KJV) – but he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) – so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Colossians 4:6 (KJV) – let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
