With all that said we are raised in a society that tells us that pushing is bad. I want to say that we need to push people more often. I think we live in a culture that has a tendency to become spiritually lazy. When we become spiritually lazy we fail to take the time that we need to so we can grow in our relationship with God.
One thing that I have been committed to in life is to push people to grow spiritually. I want to see adults and students grow into their full potential. Two weeks ago I pushed one of our students leaders out of her comfort zone. We were hosting our mid-week service together and I was the one who was supposed to pray for our Compassion offering. When it came time to pray I passed it off to Chandler to let her pray. My throat was kind of hurting but more than that I knew that Chandler was ready to be pushed for more.
I have two questions to ask in life:
- Are you pushing people in your circle of influence to grow in their walk with Christ?
- Have you placed people in your life that will push you to grow to be a better Christian?
