When to say no and when to say yes? What a question! A simple way to figure this out is, will it cause you pain or inconvenience? Is it a one-time thing or a repeated pattern? If the other person got to live the consequences, would it help them grow? These are all things to think about. If you have the opportunity to give grace to cover an uncommon thing, it's an easy time to feel confident in saying yes. If you're helping someone continue a pattern of sin and irresponsibility, that's a good time to say no.
