Or to put it more emphatically: strive to make absolutely sure that it is always as easy as possible for people to say no to what you are suggesting. This will mean that when they say yes, they are not saying yes because they have to, but because they want to. They will have been persuaded not coerced and so they will serve not under compulsion, but willingly and from the heart. And service from the heart is true Christian service; it is what we ought to be praying for among all the people to whom we minister

    • Guard from legalism
    • Trust the source
