Attention, Fellow Problem Solvers!

Keep in mind that solving people's problems is really a secondary battle where you may not be able to help. The primary battle is to know God well. Don't get so caught up in people's problems that you lose sight of a simple truth: Every problem is an opportunity to know God better. Think more about how people's problems are influencing their relationship to God; think less about how you might be able to help them solve their problems. Don't confuse secondary problems with the primary one.
