How To Help A Loved One

  1. Get hold of your emotions. Try to limit your immediate reaction to lessen the strain on your relationship with your loved one.

  2. Forgive. Release your anger, hurt and shame through forgiveness. This prevents bitterness from setting in.

  3. Get God’s perspective. This is NOT the end of the world. Homosexuality is sin, but it is not the “worst” sin and is not “incurable”. God doesn’t hate homosexuals – he loves them and wants to redeem them.

  4. Keep lines of communication open. Our words can either build up or tear down.

  5. Demonstrate love and acceptance. Sometimes our love must be firm. We cannot compromise our standards. However your loved one must understand that your disapproval of his/her behavior is not a rejection of him/her personally.

  6. Let go. You have to trust your loved one into the care of God. You can’t save him/her.

  7. Pray. You can pray! God does answer prayers, but not in the way we want. God’s timing is perfect and He will help you.
