Show Notes

In this reflective episode of Healing the City podcast, we welcome you to a segment borrowed from Journey Companions Ministries. Our host, Pastor Eric, unfolds a lesson taught by his mother, a narrative on the delicate interplay between Goals and Desires. She provides a nuanced perspective: good goals are self-sufficient, requiring only personal effort to fulfill. On the other hand, desires are inherently communal, needing others for their realization. When we blur these lines, converting desires into goals, they morph into demands. This transition is perilous, often breeding destructive emotions and outcomes. Join Pastor Eric as he navigates this intricate topic, offering wisdom for those seeking balance and harmony in their aspirations.
