People will only listen to you if they know you LIKE THEM! This at first seemed to be a no brainer. Heck, I thought I pretty much liked everyone! Afterall, aren't we commanded to LOVE everyone? Of course I like these people and have their best interest in mind when I share my faith.
However, I finally realized that I only liked those who agreed with me, shared an interest with me, or at least validated my way of thinking. These people, I would spend time with. Those who didn't, I came to the very real conclusion that I didn't like them and I was utterly shocked to learn that I cared very little about them.
Now don't throw the first stone at me here. I'm repenting from this horrible sin and I'm struggling daily to change the way I do relationship with ALL PEOPLE! Have a listen to this podcast to learn more.
