Wanting to Fix People

I’ve noticed in life that sometimes we want to treat people like we treat our cars. When our car has a problem we do one of three things: we fix it, we replace it, or we ignore it and don’t use it. For a car, this is really the best plan of action, but, when it comes to relationships, we are tempted to treat them the same way.  If we don’t like something about someone, then we try as hard as we can to “fix” them to be like we want. If that doesn’t work, we replace them with someone or something that seems to satisfy our need better.  Our last option is to ignore them and push them away.  But, this isn’t sufficient in relationships with people who we love and are God’s children. I propose three alternative options.  First, we should accept someone we love for who they are.  This doesn’t mean condoning the bad things that they do, but it means loving them in spite of all the things that get on our nerves.  Once we accept them for who they are, we can even begin to take delight in them and appreciate that what they do, even though it bothers me sometimes, makes them unique, and special, and is delightful.  Lastly, we should love them.  If we keep trying to fix people, replace them, or ignore them, then there is no chance to love them.  This is what God does for us, and this is what we should do for others.  So, instead of treating people like cars and trying to fix, replace, or ignore them, let’s accept, delight in, and love others like God does us.     ~~Deacon Jacob Carlin
