Lack of investment in others
Religion causes us to turn in, Jesus calls us to look out. When we get to caught up in religion and not caught up enough in God we start worrying about our own life. We worry about ourselves, our struggles, and our own problems and forget to be a part of helping others. Religion makes my problems the priority and Jesus says we should consider others as more important than ourselves.
Do you make room in your life to invest in others? Do you make time for deep conversations and real connections with the people around you? When we stop focusing on our religion and start focusing on our Savior we want to know others, care for them, and see them changed by God’s word.
