As a spiritual leader, you have probably discovered that not everyone who needs your help comes to you for it.
When it comes to receiving counsel and direction, I’ve noticed three categories of people:
- Those who come to me before a problem surfaces and ask me if I see areas in their lives that could be strengthened or need to be addressed.
- Those who discover a need for help through a trial or discomfort and then come and ask for counsel.
- Those who are going through a problem or turmoil, but either don’t sense their need or don’t ask for help.
So what do you do as a spiritual leader when you see a person in your care who is struggling but isn’t coming to you for help?
In this week’s Growth Points video, I suggest a few responses.
