Right or Wrong?

Is doing the right thing always the best thing? Sometimes in order to do the right thing I think we stomp the tender hearts of precious people -  especially in regards to Christianity. I am struck again and again with the patience of God. How often my patience is lacking (and my trust that God actually does the work) and I feel I need to "set people straight". How often do my attempts to do the right thing interfere with the best thing - LOVE.

I do acknowledge that sometimes love requires us to step in and try to talk some sense into people before they get hurt, but I am wondering if too often we step in too soon and ruin the gentle tug of the Father's voice to his sweet child. 

Just a thought.
