Sorry, But You’ve Been Catfished!
Familiar with the term “catfished”? Catfishing is a practice of pretending to be someone you’re not (on social media) in an attempt to lure someone else into a relationship. In fact, there’s a whole television show about it.
You may never have been catfished in a big enough way to make it onto the show but if we’re completely honest we’ve all been “micro-catfished” and have even “micro-catfished” others. In other words, at one time or another, you and I have been guilty of manipulating our image in some way to gain the acceptance of another. We hide our warts and scars and enhance our stories and surroundings.
Problem is, when we do that, everyone loses. We lose the opportunity for true intimacy. We lose knowing what it feels like to be genuinely loved. We lose out on experiencing grace, and worst of all, we lose out on the ability to change and become the best version of ourselves. Our fear of the pain of rejection ultimately costs us the ability to find true acceptance, belonging and transformation.
No wonder, God has so much to say about living in authentic community and the importance of healthy, honest relationships with one another. If you long to find true acceptance and belonging and want to grow and be transformed into God’s best version of yourself you need to be deeply connected in authentic biblical community. Spiritual growth and health require more than shallow, surface-level friendships.
Join us this Sunday (and bring someone you care about) as we learn together how to become the kind of people we both need. You were made for more than superficial relationships!
