Galatians 1:10 says, for am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Enabling is codependency in action. An enabler is someone who responds to another’s problem by attempting to take care of the situation by making things all right.
Feeling that the other person’s problem is their fault. An enabler allows the behavior to determine their worth. Only when they are doing for others do they feel like they are somebody, appreciated, and have value.
This overdeveloped sense of responsibility makes it hard for them to let go and allow others to take responsibility for their own behavior and problems.
The solution to enabling is found in understanding of what God says about their relationship with others and about who God is and who they are. Scriptures makes it clear that no one is responsible for the actions of others. Romans 14:12, So, then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.
