The Approval Addiction (#566)

When we aren't finding our life in Jesus each day, we go looking in the strangest places. When our hearts are at rest in him we get to live freely and lovingly in the world. Wayne and Brad catch up on some listener email and talk about the joy of moving away from the do-good, try-harder performance of religious activity to growing in a real relationship with him. That life is not a fairy tale, but a growing curve of learning to be in him instead of left to our own devices. Life in him is not spooky-spiritual, but feels incredibly normal as you walk through circumstances with him. It also leads to a discussion about being so insecure that we seek our validation and approval from others instead of knowing we have his, and having his we don't need to use our relationship with others to feel good about ourselves.
