Our Source of Confidence

The Golden Rule states treat others as you would like to be treated. However many of us tend to treat others similar to how we feel about ourselves. Its an amazing incite to consider the source of how we treat others is found inside our hearts regarding us personally.

Think about it. Confident people get frustrated with non-confident individuals because they don’t understand how they can’t be confident. Or on the flip side non-confident people get frustrated with confident people because they don’t understand them either. However when you consider both which person would you want to be around the most or would you glean from the most? I would say most would say the confident person.

The bottom line is in order for us to develop stronger people skills we need to develop stronger convictions of who God made us to be and His confidence in us. The better picture we have of ourselves through the eyes of Christ.

1 John 5:14 says “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us.”

What are you saying Jamie? I am saying that God’s will is for us to approach Him with confidence that He loves us and wants the best for us. When we walk around with that mindset we treat others much different especially difficult people. 🙂

God Bless!!
