Recently, I came across a classic viral video.
It was a video of a father and son on a reverse bungee catapult. It shoots them into the air. All the while, the son keeps repeating, “I’m okay. I’m okay. I’m okay.”
Do you remember this one?
I believe that’s an apt illustration for the church.
Watch more by clicking the picture:
Put simply, is your church a place where it’s okay for people to admit they’re not okay?
Are you a person to whom a friend could admit that they’re not okay?
The Bible says that “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17).
Before we can even hope to do sharpen one another, the church (ie. that’s us!) needs to be a people who can admit when we’re not okay.
And we need to be a safe place for others to be able to admit when they’re not okay.
How can the church become a safer place for such admittance?
In other words, how can we make it more okay to admit you’re not okay? Leave your comment below!
