Safe people, those that love us in the midst of the pain, support our efforts, remind us of our gifts, and challenge our opportunities is essential to our human experience. We are interdependent, connected with one another, to work together for the Kingdom of God.
Without safe peeps – life will be hard and stale, friend. You can be a hard cookie and be “self sufficient” all you want, but you need other women to encourage you. We’re hard wired for connection, meaningful experiences, and purposeful lives. But let’s not forget, our only source of fullness comes from God.
Do you have safe people in your life? If you do, consider yourself blessed. If you don’t, you can find safe people. Yes, they exist. You’ve gotta do a little more looking in the right places. As you’ll see, Jesus is the ultimate example of safety, authentic vulnerability, and acceptance of others when they fail or disappoint us.
On today’s episode, we’ll look at three factors that will help us identify safe people. We’ll use Mark 14:32-42, as our text to learn about vulnerability – a key factor in safe people. We’ll also look at the disciples response to Jesus’ pain and identify three traits of safe people.
