Overview and Objectives

Lesson Overview

Dr. Crabb stresses that our longing for relationship is legitimate—but that longing can become an illegitimate need/demand. What happens when this illegitimate neediness becomes our bad, ruling passion when we give SoulCare?

Lesson Objectives

When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:

  • Identify the common, internal dynamics of human beings that result from 1) the fact that we were created in the image of God, and 2) we are fallen.
  • Recognize the self-centeredness in your own soul.
  • Discuss how bearing the image of God relates to community.
  • Explain how turning away from God causes our longing for love to become a demand.
  • Understand why we justify our behaviors, even if they are hurtful or anti-biblical.
Personal Reflection

As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
When does our longing for relationship become an illegitimate need/demand? How can this neediness affect our ability to give SoulCare? Illustrate from a recent conversation in your own life or create a scenario that illustrates the point.
