Powerful People Can See The Hidden Life

March 9, 2016

“Reconnecting a detached soul to the lifeblood of community requires power that only a few people seem to possess. Powerful people can see the hidden life that is already poured into another by God and, with an awareness of the life they have received from the same source, they pour out what is deepest and truest and noblest within them into the soul of another; and they do it with a clear vision of what the other person could become as the life of Christ is nourished and released within.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 32

Questions for Reflection:
• When you see another person struggling, how do you usually respond?
• Do you tend to exhort or affirm, to advise or to problem-solve, to listen or to pray?
• Does your response tend to be more about your own desire to do the right thing, or are you most attuned to what the Spirit is already doing in the heart of the other?
• How might offering what is most alive in you relieve pressure both from you and from the person with whom you hope to connect?
