In Episode 004“The Pathway to Promise” podcast Dr. Brad Miller presents the fourth of five foundational episodes which present the core teachings on which the pathway to promise process is built. The title of the episode is “The Foundational Gift of being Motivated by Loving Relationships.”
The Pathway to Promise Promise is grounded in the belief that every person has a God-given promised life of peace, prosperity and purpose and you must implement a planned pathway with the proper people to quickly overcome life’s challenges to achieve that promised life.
The third foundational principle of the pathway to promise process is “The Foundational Gift of being Motivated by Loving Relationships.”
Dr. Brad extrapolated these four principles from 2 Timothy 1:7 “God does not give us a spirit of timidity but the spirit of power love and self-discipline”
God gift of the motivation of loving relationships flows directly from the statement “God give us a spirit of love.”
Dr. Brad uses the story of two questions that his daughter asked him which were separated by 25 years for understanding the motivation of love to fuel life transformation.
Dr. Brad intrudes the listener to four acts of love which reveal the covenant nature of love and how love is the “Big Why” which drives life transformation.
The Four Acts of Love are:
1. Radical Hospitality: This means unconditional love in action without judgment toward the people you love.
2. Fearless Conversation: This means choosing to go deeper than superficial talk with the people that you love.
3. Genuine Humility: This means authentically putting the needs of others before your own glory.
4. Divine anticipation: This is living with the expectation in loving relationships that a synergy will happen when you invest in each other that you just know is of God or a spiritual or divine thing.
