242: Jesus Was Not a Codependent
Listen now
If you've ever felt confused by how Jesus did everything for everyone and saved people and helped them and yet you can never do enough to feel like enough, then today's episode is for you. If you've ever felt like you're not sure how to be a good Christian and also take care of your own needs, today's episode is also for you. I'm so excited to share with you the many examples I've found in the scriptures of how Jesus was not a codependent. Time Stamps: [00:53] - “Jesus was not a rescuer.” [07:17] - “Mind your own business.” [14:23] - Codependents usually want to save people from consequences, but everyone reaps what they sow. [19:54] - Don’t expect people around you to mind-read. (Hint: They can’t.) [24:13] - What is the sermon on the mount actually about? [36:56] - “I’m not participating in this.” [42:53] - There’s freedom and love in allowing people to choose for themselves.
