After over 15 years of pastoring here are five kinds of people that I’ve noticed others always have a hard time being around and getting close to… so if you wanna grow in life don’t be like this:

  1. Those who take themselves too serious: Lighten up- learn to laugh at yourself; you’re not that deep.
  2. Those who don’t know how to forgive: If you’re always offended and make people feel uncomfortable because of the past you need to get off your high horse.
  3. Those who always talk about themselves: Try to listen more than you talk and ask others questions about their life, day, family and passion. Seven billion other people live here too.
  4. Those who don’t know how to learn: You don’t know everything and everyone doesn’t always need to know the little you do know.
  5. Those who only take but never give: Everyone can give something to someone- time, love, compliments and smiles are free so give them generously.

What’s the solution? Be like Jesus! Start with love… 1 John 4:7-8, “7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
