You Crossed the Line Bro

What do you think of when you hear something like You crossed the line bro.”? You might think someone just said something they are going to regret later and if not, it is definitely going to keep two people from traveling together in a car across the country.

But wait…maybe the comment wasn’t offensive but alarmingly honest. Maybe the person making the comment was way more real than the other person expected. What if it was a question no one had dared to ask before?

Think about Proverbs 27:17…Does someone have your best interest in mind and are willing to risk everything to help you become all that God wants for you? Or, John 13:34,35…If someone really loves you they will sometimes show it with questions or statements that not only make you think but also cause you to want to change or correct something in your life.

Every statement Jesus made always had the other person’s best interest in mind even though it might hurt to hear. He was willing to cross the line and not settle for a shallow relationship.

Who do you have in your life willing to ask you hard questions or risk telling you the truth? Make it easy for them to cross the line. Are you willing to let someone be so real that you can’t play your “which shell is the pea under” game with them anymore?
