Christians can often get into a mindset where we think everything that is wrong or untrue needs to be addressed NOW! And so with the banner of “speaking the truth in love” flying high over our heads, we dive in with our unsolicited advice.
In this episode of the Everyday Disciple Podcast, Caesar explains why most people really don't want to hear our advice. We'll look at what motivates a lot of our advice-giving, and learn some best practices for when we do need to offer help and insights to others.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
The 4 types of advice that we give to people.
Why we feel the need to quickly offer our advice to others.
How the gospel speaks into our motivations when giving advice.
Best practices so people will want to hear your advice.
“Do you give advice because you want to see a person’s pain stop and their situation improve? (Sounds good…) Or so that God will be more glorified in their life? Which, in turn, produces life in the Kingdom of God which is the best life we could ever live. Who and what is our focus makes all the difference in how we give advice and how it is perceived and received."
