It’s hard to help people change if you don’t really know them

Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands

Why do we tend to live in the casual and superficial rather than deep and personal regarding relationships?

  • Busyness traps us into having superficial, casual conversations
  • We buy into the lie that we are unique and struggle in ways that one else does
  • We prefer darkness rather than light – we find the searching light of true friendship a little intimidating. True friendships call you out of the darkness of personal privacy into the loving candor of mutual concern. It moves you from being a sealed envelope to being an open letter.
  • We don’t see – sin is deceitful and blinding
  • Simple reason – no one asks
  • We prefer the comfortable
