Fear of being wrong
This is a major fear expressed as we go deeper into why people don’t invite. We have become a society where we mustn’t fail and there is only one right answer. It is a fear of being wrong. We only like the word yes and regret hearing the word no. So this is problematical in mission because we are bound to hear people say the word no to us. Fear of being wrong also has another consequence for ourselves, it closes us off to growth. In the person who does not mind being wrong they are detecting processing and correcting in potentially negative situation. I think the fruits of the spirit are developed in this way. God puts us through incidents where we might develop patience. We need to give up being perfect and begin the work of becoming who we are meant to be. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
