Rescuers See a World Full of Problems

Rescuing is always based on a “problem” mentality”. This care-taking state of mind is one that looks out and sees a world that needs to be fixed.

When we are in rescue-mode, we think we are the ones that are supposed to fix the torn & broken world we perceive – it's a sort of “god-complex” really.

Rarely does it work out well however, simply because we are minding someone else's business – as if we know what life lessons and growing challenges others should or shouldn't have in life!

Anytime I'm meddling in somebody else's business I've abandoned my own. This leaves me empty and unfulfilled. I am the one who needs my “fixing” … the rest of the world is simply mirroring my brokenness.
