Thought for the day! (Lives of the saints)

“Don’t be an amateur providence” Oswald Chambers.
What did he mean by that?  A ‘for instance’ would be: Don’t interfere when God is dealing with a person. Sometimes people are experiencing God’s discipline in their lives (Hebrews 12:5-12). They will need encouragement but not false comfort.
Beware of well meaning but misguided sympathies.
