Fine Lines

Accountability partners are valuable – often they can see what you cannot. Most often it’s either by experience from their own spiritual growth or simply because they are not as close to a particular situation.

I’ve been told I am a kind person – a nice person – yippee! wonderful! right? That is true…we want to be a reflection of God’s goodness & mercy! We want to exhibit fruit of the Holy Spirit!

Its a fine line though….we must be careful to ensure what we perceive as kindness isn’t really just being nice.

What’s the difference? Being nice can easily result in enabling negative or even destructive behaviors in others – being nice or agreeable doesn’t necessarily mean you are acting for the good of others.
