Relationships Take Time And Energy!

Relationships take time and energy to assure that they last and thrive!

Good relationships are a blessing from God; there needs to be a sense of giving and take, to strengthen those types of relationships. Here are some encouraging scriptures about relationships.

Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or would just like some encouragement?

If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace. Franklin D. Roosevelt

John 1:18  No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

 


 

First Of All, Ask Yourself These Questions:

  1. Have you ever wondered why the American divorce rate has skyrocketed?
  2. Does it upset you that hundreds of thousands of people are abusing drugs and alcohol?
  3. Do you believe that sin has anything to do with the above three questions? Plus all the murder robberies, and all the other crimes that are being committed daily?
Romans 7:19  For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. (NIV)

Now Read This Scripture Below, And Think Of What The Solution Is.

2 Chronicles 7:14  If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (NIV)

Then Be A Part Of The Solution By Becoming A Light In This Dark World:

John 12:46  I have come into the world as a light so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. (NIV)
  1. If you are married, stay married and encourage others to do the same.

Initiate Peace With Everyone In All Your Relationships!

~ Romans 12:18

 


Relationships! God Loves You And Me!

Love God and love others!

Love is more than just saying words; it is showing respect to God and others with our actions!

Living my life for over 50 years, a person like me has had the opportunity to be in many relationships since I was a young boy.

We often run into many healthy relationships, and some neutral, and some very destructive ones (centered on alcohol and drugs) which lead to many problems in my life.

I am referring to many types such as family, friends, relatives, classmates, co-workers, strangers. Anyone you and I come into contact with could wind up being someone you could have a friendship possibly. 

Would you consider yourself an “other person” oriented type of person or more of a “self-centered” type of person? If you are a “self-centered” type of person, maybe today is the day you look at that and start to try to change your ways.

 


 

Insignful Questions
