Everyone has suckers and refreshers in their lives.
You know you’ve been around a sucker when you are more tired, emotionally and spiritually drained and depleted after they leave. And here’s the thing about suckers: they have the capacity to undo the work of dozens of refreshers in your life. Even though 99 out of 100 encounters in the day were neutral to positive, one encounter with a sucker can wreck you for a good part of the day.
The thing about refreshers is that whenever you’ve spent time with them, they leave you better and refreshed as a result of being in their presence. They are gifts from God. Treasure them. Intentionally make time to get around them.
Most of the encounters we have with people will be neutral to positive. But there are bound to be suckers in everyone’s life. Those suckers will drain you. And the only ones who can help you get replenished are the refreshers.
May your life abound with refreshers, my friends.
