As men how truly adventuresome are we? Don’t we all aspire to be significant? And in what way? Does our spiritual life figure into this equation?
When we read(/study) the Bible we should look for applications; not for others but for ourselves. Do we have a personal record of transformation (called sanctification) that we can point to as part of Christ’s redeeming grace? Our task is just to listen to their story, their hurts, and to their hearts. This is the point of having empathy which is more than sympathy.
