Why do so many of our relationships suffer from alienation, indifference, and even hostility? Author Sam Crabtree believes that often at the heart of these breakdowns is a lack of affirmation. He observes that God grants mercy to those who refresh others, and in life that people tend to be influenced by those who praise them. In this episode, Tyrell discusses this book and talks through what it means to affirm the character of Christ in others. When done well, affirmation does not fuel pride in the person, but refreshes them and honours God.
