Many of us are tempted to push ourselves to help others. But how do we avoid the situation where we are helping so much, we feel like we’re running on empty?
I suspect that those of us drawn to biblical counselling will tend to be eager footwashers. There will be something about getting into the mess of other people’s lives that appeals. But I find myself wondering if many of us might be rather less good at presenting our own feet for washing.
The C-word is tricky. To some it’s a biblical word we ought to reclaim. Others think using the term in our churches will only create misunderstanding.
How can we engage with the Word with a renewed sense of expectancy and joy.?
I used to think my task was to keep meeting with someone until their problems went away.
