It's not my job

It’s not my job to change your mind,
It is simply my job to speak my truth.

It is not my job to transform you,
It is simply my job to be genuine, real and have integrity.

It is not my job to make you to grow
It is simply my job to grow myself, modelling self-reflection, repentance, and a willingness to change.

It is not my job to judge you
It is simply my job to love you, forgive you, and offer compassion.

Why is it so hard to remember
That we only have to do
That which is in front of us
With love,
And kindness
And forgiveness
And peace
And leave the rest to God?

It is not my job to save you
It is simply my job to remind you that you are worth saving
And that through grace, God offers you new life again and again.
