If we aren’t pushing others to become their best selves, what are we doing? Who are we challenging? Who are we inspiring? Who are we championing? Who are we motivating? Who are we encouraging? Like, seriously?
What are our relationships about? And by relationships, I mean friends, to marriage and everything in between. Aside from showing the love of God to people, should we not want them to be their best so that we can watch them achieve the dreams of their heart and those of God?
And I understand that sometimes we are afraid to go deep with people, and I’m also not saying that we should go deep with every single person in our environment, but in my heart, I believe that a basic tenet of friendship should be the desire that my presence in someone’s life makes them better. And that is usually the lens that I evaluate my presence in someone’s life through.
