Vital Relationships

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Genesis 14:1-16

Because of war between the kings of several clans in and around Sodom, Lot and his family are taken captive when the enemies of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah prevail in battle. When word of Lot's capture and abduction reaches Abram, he immediately sets a plan of rescue into action, which includes two of his neighbors. Thankfully for Lot, he and his family and possessions are rescued and returned safely to Sodom.

The word "relationship" repeatedly came to my mind as I took in and thought about this chapter--the partnering and power relationships between the kings, the family relationship between Abram and Lot, the friendship and ally relationship between Abram and his neighbors. All of these differing relationships highlight how God created us as relational beings. We need other people, and other people need us. Pretty much everything we do involves other people in some fashion. And when you think about it, many seemingly insurmountable tasks can be accomplished when we join together in relationship.

What are some key relationships/friendships in your life (family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, business partners)? Would you say you are a relationship builder? Why is this so important? How can you make the relationships you have even stronger going forward? Tami

Relationships are vitally important and for me the important ones are with my wife, my daughters, my family and my friends.Other important ones are with my work and church family. It is vitally important for me to sustain these relationships as they serve to make my life easier. The most important relationship for me however is the one with my God.This is a relationship built on love, God created man in his own image and saw that it was good; God sent his son as a living sacrifice for my sins. It is this love that I must replicate in order to have good friends and an easier life. "If we say we love God and hate our brothers we are liars and the truth is not in us". We must always remember that "perfect love drives away fear' and this is what makes our life easy. A life free from fear. Praise God for first loving us!!!!!!!!

Grateful for those whom the Lord has brought into my life.
