Our Relationships

January 2, 2020

Every other day or so, I hope to share nine brief excerpts from a site called Becoming Minimalist and then filter each through Scripture  —

1. Relationships.

The old adage is quite true, “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”

Loving relationships bring a joy into our lives that can never be matched by income, title, or career achievements.

People matter and are worth the effort.

It is important to notice in the adage above that several types of relationships are important to our well-being.

One, where we are being loved by another.

And a second, where we are pouring out love.

Work to have both.

— My favorite line from that: “People matter and are worth the effort.”

Jesus: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34,35)

People pay more attention to what we do than to what we say…so, let’s find some do-able ways to live the love of Christ today.
