If you think people are drawn to you by an impressive religious CV, you’re in for a shock. When people are in crisis or need to know that God loves them, that they’re not alone, they don’t seek out the guy who thinks he’s Mr. Answer or who radiates superiority and disapproval. They want someone who loves God and who loves them.
Refusing to be offended by others is a powerful door-opener to actual relationships.
