What Can Change with Jesus at the Helm
If you have already listened to this interview, then you know just how much Jesus can change someone’s life. If you are reading this and have not yet listened to Bob’s story, go do so now! As Mike talks to Bob, the most prevalent theme is Change through Jesus. What does it mean to let “Jesus take the wheel”? I think it is very different for everyone. How much are you giving up? How much is Jesus taking care of the unknown? It is all and only part, it is a sum and a whole. When Jesus is at the Helm, anything and everything can happen for you and others. Do you have any stories of when you finally let Jesus be in charge? Comment below and tag us in your stories on social media! We want to know and share those with the world. These stories are important, and it all leads to understanding.
Understanding One Another
Empathy. Probably one of the hardest human traits, unless you are gifted by God with this talent! Coming to understand one another is essential to a combined successful human existence. Why is understanding so hard? It is hard because we typically don’t listen. If we listen, we don’t listen long enough. Bob talks about how to start acting during a world that is in crisis, and the first step is trying to understand the people around you. When was the last time you digested a person’s story so well, you were able to regurgitate their story and they agreed with what you said back to them? You might find this as one of the hardest things to do when you try! I personally have found this to be very useful in past years and more importantly in recent months. Can you restate someone’s point of view in your own words and have them agree? Let us know how this experience benefits you in the comments!
