Episode 242: Jesus Was Not a Codependent

If you've ever felt confused by how Jesus did everything for everyone and saved people and helped them and yet you can never do enough to feel like enough, then today's episode is

for you. If you've ever felt like you're not sure how to be a good Christian and also take care of your own needs, today's episode is also for you. I'm so excited to share with you the many examples I've found in the scriptures of how Jesus was not a codependent.
