Training or Being Trained

A friend recently shared a thought-provoking adage with me: “In every relationship, someone is being trained.” Like all maxims, the pithy statement contains a limited truth. In the best of relationships, we submit to one another, both training and being trained.

However, consider the concept on a broader scope.

  • In our relationship with our smart phones, are we training or being trained?
  • In our relationship with the internet, are we training or being trained?
  • In our relationship with social media, are we training or being trained?
  • In our relationship with unchurched people, are we training or being trained?
  • In our relationship with children about attending Sunday School and church, are we training or being trained?
  • In our relationship with the world, are we training or being trained?

“In every relationship, someone is being trained.”

Are we formed by the world or transformed by the Lord?
