#069: Removing Guilt from our Relationships [Podcast]

In this episode we talk about the problems guilt plays into our relationships, forcing us to carry burdens we should not be carrying.

This week’s episode covers the subject of guilt, and how it affects our relationships with friends, family and those we we help in life. What happens when you want them to be well more than they do? What happens when guilt gets into the equation?

Too many relationships are base out of guilt. Find out how you can overcome some of your relationship struggles by getting guilt out of your life.

In this episode we base our discussion on the following question that was sent in:

How do you honor & respect a parent with a severe drug addiction habit? When they are not in a place to receive healing or want help but continually pull the 911 trigger possibly for attention. This has gone on for years, but there is never any change or fruit on their part. It just causes complete chaos & family drama. I want to position myself with love, honor & respect but can’t give into the guilt every time.

Discussion Includes the Following:

  • How so many live their entire relational patterns out of guilt.
  • What guilt is and how it counterfeits real love.
  • How guilt prevents us from hearing from God.
  • Understanding how false-responsibility keeps us in guilt.
  • What we do to feel “ok.”
  • What does it mean to respect and honor?

Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
