We don’t like getting involved in other people’s problems. Our own problems are messy enough — why complicate things by taking on other people’s junk? But the reason is simple: God calls us to help other people. He created us to function this way. … If you wait until all of your own issues are gone before helping others, it will never happen. This is a trap that millions have fallen into, not realizing that our own sanctification happens as we minister to others.
— Francis Chan
