Genuine Relationships, Have No Agenda
Relationships have more meaning when any and every hidden agenda is left behind. The agenda may seem good, especially if it involves “winning someone to Christ”. However, NO ONE wants to be your project, they just want to be your friend. They just want to have relationship with you.
People can tell when you’re trying to “fix” them. The problem is YOU can’t “fix” anyone. God will use us to show people love, and to share His love. But, the best way to do this is to love and accept others for who they are, where they are. Just enjoy the relationship.
I’m not saying to participate in activities etc that go against who you are created to be, of course not. What I am saying is that when we love people where they are for who they are, the love of God begins to stir their hearts. When they know they are loved and accepted instead of criticised and condemned, they will be more open to receiving the love of God.
God’s love is what brings change.
I would love to connect withyou on Facebook! Come on over and let’s get to know each other.
Being loved by Him, with you,
Keep It Real,
