Loving others

Keep the relationship bigger than the problem

I was deeply encouraged by this today! Hope you are too….

“Our normal way of living in our human nature is to value results and to look at people as those who can help us achieve what we want or look at people who are ‘getting in the way’ of achieving those results. This can result in manipulation and/or rejection.

“But, when the Holy Spirit enters in and grows our new nature, when we grow to be more like God, we realize our relationships with others are more important than the problems we have with them. This changes the way we look at life and the people we connect with on a regular basis. Whether it is our business, the way we act in our families, the way we deal with our friends and neighbors, relationships have priority over results.”
