I do not know anyone in Christian leadership that does not take some hits.
Mistrust of motives,
Rage filled e-mails,
Rumors circulated masked as prayer requests are just a few examples. I find all of these and more described by Paul in his letters to the churches and leaders he was developing. And I find he had a simple principle that guided his engagement in relationships.
2 Corinthians 6:11-12 (NLT) 11 Oh, dear Corinthian friends! We have spoken honestly with you, and our hearts are open to you. 12 There is no lack of love on our part, but you have withheld your love from us.
This 22 minute video may give us some practical insight to living with open hearts. Watch it and then share with me your thoughts.
