Why is it so hard for us to be nice to people? Well, it’s easy to be nice to some people, but it’s hard to be nice to others. It’s easy to be nice to people once, but it’s hard to be nice to them repeatedly.
It’s because we have inside us the sense that people need to “earn” our favor, and if we do something nice for them, they “owe” us something in return.
In this message, Pastor Jeff addresses this fact that in order to truly serve others and bring refreshment to them, we need to release them from the obligation to pay us back. It’s like freeing a slave.
