But Do You Like Me?
Who do you look forward to being around? Chances are they’re people who accept you like you are without wanting to change, critique, or control you.
Have you ever wondered, “I know people admire my accomplishments, but what about me? I don’t feel like anybody really cares about me.personally. It’s always about what I can get done.”
So many of our relationships are conditional-a quid pro quo. So when we have someone who doesn’t put a lot of expectations on us, we love it!
Message: As leaders let’s not put expectations on people so they feel like our acceptance of them is conditional based upon how well they perform. Tell men how to live out to their fingertips for Christ-of course-but not that your acceptance of them depends on their behavior.
Who do you look forward to being around, and why?
How can you be more like the person others want to be around?
What can we do practically to communicate the Christian life to men who have been abused with performance expectations?
For the glory of Christ and no other reason…
