In this final installment, Eric talks about how to approach turning initial encounters with people toward a more developing relationship that may become a gospel opportunity. (Note: These are all stand alone videos, but if you’ve missed the earlier installments you can find them here: Hausler Series)
Questions for Thought or Discussion:
1) How does the ‘plant, water, harvest’ analogy for relationships strike you for your life? At which do you think you are more of a natural? Which is hardest? Do you have people in your life that you feel like are in each category?
2) Who are you currently building relationships with, as Eric called it–“for the long haul?” Could you list 3? 5? What have you done recently to further that relationship—an act of service or encouragement, checking in, etc? What is something you could do to further that relationship in the near future?
