Roll with the Punches!
To roll with the punches is be able to deal well with criticism or difficulties. It is a term that comes from boxing describing when boxers absorb the force of the blows. In invitation there will be the punches of rejection. We can absorb them through self-compassion. How do you treat yourself when things go wrong; when someone says no. Do we disparage ourselves? Are we very critical of what we have done? Do we call ourselves an idiot? Serial Inviters treat themselves better. They take full responsibility for things going wrong but they don’t add an extra layer of catastrophe. They just adjust and say okay I got a no this time, but next time maybe I will get a yes. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church and roll with the punches if you get a no and invite again.
