...our sacrifices for others do not draw them nearer to us, but it does draw us nearer to them.The word “sacrifice” in the Hebrew language basically means “to draw near.” The sacrifices of the Old Testament were never meant to draw God nearer to the worshipper, it was meant to draw the worshipper nearer to God. Likewise, our sacrifices for others do not draw them nearer to us, but it does draw us nearer to them. The more we do for someone the more we feel connected or drawn to them. When we do things for others with the intention of drawing them to us, it is a payment, i.e. a form of expressing value. The more we do for them, the more we value them, even when they do not value us. As this false sense of value increases we feel more compelled to do things for them. This can grow into an addictive, codependent pattern that is difficult to break.  JOIN ME this week and start breaking your compulsion toward codependent sacrificing for others.
