Reach to When You Reach Through from The Holy Dose

Men, "the resistance" is the voice in the back of our head telling us to do nothing, say nothing, or that we are nothing.

Seth Godin calls it the "lizard brain" in his book, Linchpin.

James calls it sin (James 4:17).

Sometimes that thing we’re trying to get for ourselves is the very thing we should consider “reaching through” and giving to others–a compliment, time, forgiveness, love, and respect.

Recently the resistance told me not to roll down my window and talk to a homeless man. But I did it anyway and we both left laughing.

“The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed”. –Proverbs 11:25

I pray that a renewing wave crashes over you.

DO THIS TODAY: Reach through the resistance to refresh someone today.
