I hear this question all the time. “I am afraid if I ask my friends for financial support, it will affect our relationship.”
But let’s look at it from a different perspective.
When you don’t ask your friends for support they might be thinking one of 2 things:
- They might think you don’t need their support.
- They might be waiting for you to ask.
In both of these scenarios it all begins with you. You need to be proactive.
Confidently share the vision and assignment the Lord has given you. Ask them to be part of your team. And by the way, what is the worst case scenario? They might say no. Can you handle that?
Remember if you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
By all means recognize that if you do not ask them for support, you have taken away from them the blessing of being a vital part of God’s kingdom work!
