When You Help Others Grow, You Grow
It is wired so that when you help other people grow, you grow. You never grow faster than when you’re in fellowship with other believers and encouraging each other’s commitment to a full, abundant, blissful life.
Keep yourself in training for this life. How do you keep training for a full life? You get a team, a spiritual partner. Have you noticed that it’s always easier to work out when you’re working with somebody else? You need someone to walk alongside side you through your journey of faith, and you need to make the same commitment to other people.
Nothing affects your life more than your commitments. Tell me what you’re committed to, and I’ll tell you what you’re going to be in 20 years, because you are becoming whatever you are committed to. Your commitments shape your life! And if you’re not committed to anything, other people are shaping your life.
Your commitments not only affect here and now; they also affect eternity, because every choice you make has eternal consequences. We are that powerful. Our choices matter that much. That’s why the Bible says in Romans 1:12, “I want us to help each other with the faith we have. Your faith will help me, and my faith will help you”
We help each other out!
