Honest Feedback - Habits of the Heart

Honest Feedback

The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?

Jeremiah 17:9

This week, ask a close friend or family member to give you honest feedback about your weaknesses. Here are some questions to consider asking that person:

  • Have I recently hurt your feelings in some way?
  • Do you feel like I am present with you when we are together?
  • Do you feel as though I genuinely care about your interests, dreams, or passions?
  • Is there a blind spot in my life I need to become aware of?
  • In what ways can I change my words and actions so I can love you better?

Without defending yourself, confess these shortcomings to your loved one and ask for forgiveness.
