Sponsors simply sow. Their seeds fall on different types of ground and then do what they do on the kind of ground they land on. Sponsors are diligent and patient in providing structure and guidance. Our sponsees receive it or reject it one-choice-at-a-time themselves. We don’t do the work, we provide the program and God does the work through the program to those who receive it.
The best attitude for a sponsor is “I love my brother, but am doing this as much for myself as them.”
There is no ego investment relative to how our sponsees do – sadness, perhaps, but never something personal.
