One of the biggest complaints i’ve heard in regards to talking to someone new is the age old excuse of “I don’t who I’d talk to, I don’t have anywhere I can just talk to strangers.”
Let me suggest, as crazy as this is, that maybe the way to make changes is to change things. Maybe if I want to be engaged, and living out the gospel, I need to be ready, and I need to be personable, but maybe I also need to go someplace new. Maybe I need to get outside my comfort zone and go somewhere. Maybe in order for things to change, I need to change some things.
Maybe you can go to a new place to eat, and talk to someone there. Maybe you can call up someone you kinda knew, but didn’t really. Maybe on a Sunday morning you can just talk to someone you don’t recognize.
We want life to be different and we want God to open doors, but then we want him to push us through them as well. Our unwillingness to make changes leaves us in an unaltered state of repetition where maybe God wants to do something for us or through us but because we won’t step out of our comfort zone and try something different, we don’t ever really see change.
Here is the tip for today, in regards to our weekly challenge. If you want to meet new people, you might have to be intentional about being around and noticing new people.
What are you doing to put yourself out there among new people?
