I met a close friend for coffee yesterday and we ended up talking over different stuff that confronted both of us, for different reasons. Today, there was a mutual respect for us “calling things out” for what they were. Sometimes we go through seasons, where we think everything is great but then someone (who we trust), raises some thoughts on situations that we may not recognise (i.e: pride, anger, addictions etc.)
No-one is infallible and to think that we are, is a dangerous game. That is why we are apart of the body of Christ – to keep each other accountable. I have people “in my World” that God has surrounded me with, that whenever they raise something – no matter how much I may struggle with the initial conversation – I take it on board and then I go to God; because you should trust your friends to help you remain on Gods path.
Take good counsel and accept correction – that’s the way to live wisely and well. (Proverbs 19:20 MSG)
