TIME OUT FOR RELATIONSHIPS
We were created for companionship. Whether it is in a marriage, a friendship or a relationship with a stranger, God put us here to help one another. When we don’t have the right relationships with others, we aren’t going to be happy and we won’t be doing what God has called us to do. It’s time we look at our relationships and decided to take time to work on them so we can be obedient to God. Putting the needs of others before our own needs will help us have a better relationship, the kind of relationship God wants us to have.
Titus 3:14 “Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others; then they will not be unproductive.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to remember today to put others first. Help us to find out what their needs are and spend time with them helping them to get what they need. Help us to share Your message with them as we build that relationship with them so they will know You are first in our lives and they will want You in their lives as well. Show us what we can do to help one another today, Lord. Thank You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Today is a good day to get to know and help someone. We don’t know what they need until we get to know them.
When we take time to find out what others need and help them, God will make our problems seem so less important.
So often we get sidetracked with our struggles and we don’t see that others are struggling as well. Let’s look at the needs of others today and find out how we can help.
1 Peter 4:19 “So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.” (NLT)
