Helping You Help Others
Is counseling for the professional only? What do you do when a member of your small group or someone at work asks for advice? Where do you begin?
As Christian leaders, we are called upon to counsel. For too long, we have been reminded of our limitations. But what about the potential? II Corinthians 3:5,6 tells us, “Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers…”
Be an effective people helper.
