Relationships Matter

The way we relate with God is connected with the ways we relate with others.  That's why we have the twin commandments about love for God and caring for our neighbor.  In fact, we can learn something about our relationship with God as we consider how we relate with others, including those closest to us.

Today in class we saw a video interview on marital intimacy with a Biblical counselor, David Powlison.  It's a very helpful video in its own right, but notice how it connects our attitudes and behaviors in marriage with how we relate with God and vice versa.

How we deal with others reflects how we deal with God and how we relate with God affects our relationships with others, particularly the most intimate.  Let's pray and ask God for help as we apply Jesus' life and teachings to both.
