I learned a long time ago that I am not very good at fixing things. I don’t have the natural ability to repair things that are broken, nor do I have the desire to learn how to do such things.
So when my car needs even the most minor repair work, I take it to a mechanic. When something in the house is broken, I call for a handyman.
More recently, I have discovered that I can’t fix people. I used to try. I would sit and listen to their problems and offer some advice—whether they asked for it or not!
But I can’t fix people. And you know what? That’s not my job. It’s the Lord’s job to fix people. What I need to do is bring broken people to Jesus.
“Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.”—Mark 2:3.
