We can choose to turn our eyes toward other people, instead of staying focused on ourselves. And we can look for specific ways to serve them. The apostle Paul focused on telling more people about Jesus: “But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it” (2 Timothy 4:17a NIV).

    Yesterday we talked about the first of five factors that influence your identity. We have all been made wonderfully complex and full of flaws, and until we embrace who we are — including our flaws — we cannot make the changes in our lives that will bring about true transformation.

    When people are hurting, they need simple truth, not simplistic truth. It’s not enough to tell someone to pray, read the Bible, or go to church. You have to help them know how to make changes in their lives.
