Communication Part 2

This week, we are looking at some of the reasons that people may not come to us for help in time of need. If you are a leader in any capacity, this can make or break your leadership. The first reason was a perceived lack of ability or They don't think you can help. The second is also an interpersonal issue:
2. They don't think we care. (Fellowship)

If someone thinks we don't care or worse yet, are antagonistic towards them or the things they value, they will not likely come to us for help. We must be careful not to give the impression that the feelings of others are not important. (Proverbs 12:25) While it is true that we may not feel the same way about something or feel it with the same passion as some one else, if a brother or sister is hurting, we aught to be that friend who sticks close. (Proverbs 18:24)
