THE VALUE OF STRONG RELATIONSHIPS


Welcome to purposeful living today. No man is an Island here on earth that is why we have all come from a family and we meet people everyday in order to relate. We do not meet people by accident. As we journey through this new week, let us consider valuing the relationships and people God has put in our lives for our blessings. Do have a wonderful week ahead.

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity". Proverbs 17:17



Our lives depend on our relationships with others. From the moment we are born, we rely on others to help raise us, nurture us, care for us. Strong and effective relationships are valuable because no matter how independent or self-reliant we become, we will always accomplish more with the help of others.

But achievements are only the beginning. Research indicates that strong relationships also make us happier and healthier. Look at the people in your life who you have strong relationship with? You feel very alive and joyful when you are with them.

So, how can you cultivate better and strong relationships if you're not involved in one? Simply put, great relationships thrive on TRUST.

At times, we hand over trust to complete strangers without a second thought; for example the person you employed to take care of the house, your chef or even the people assigned to teach your children in their schools. But this type of trust is circumstantial; it comes and goes depending on the situation.

 To build trust into deeper relationships requires adding value in your relationship with someone. We might imagine each of our relationships as a bridge we build between us and another person. Any strong bridge must be built on a solid foundation and for relationships, that foundation is trust. Without trust, there can be no love, no friendship, no lasting connection between people. But where there is trust, there is motivation to act.

 If you trust someone is looking after your best interests, you will do almost anything that person asks of you.
One of the best ways to improve the relationship between you and another person is to help them.

Be Helpful in whatever relationship you find yourself to enjoy it's value.
Think about your favorite boss or teacher. Where they graduated from, what kind of degree they have, even their previous accomplishments—none of this is relevant to your relationship. But what about the hours they were willing to take out of their busy schedule to listen or help out? Their readiness to get down in the trenches and work alongside you?
Actions like these inspire trust.
The same principle applies in your family life. It’s often the small things that matter: an offer to make a cup of tea, washing the dishes or other housework, helping carry in food stuff from the car.

Here's a story of a man and how through his act of being helpful found his help meet.

"A spirit of helpfulness is what actually helped me woo my wife. We had been friends for a year before I asked her out, but she turned me down. I took it hard. She said we could still be friends, something I wasn’t sure I was capable of. But I knew she was special and I wasn’t ready to let her out of my life completely, so I agreed.
Somehow, we did manage to remain friends. A year later, I could sense her feelings toward me had started to change. . . so I asked if she’d reconsider.
In 2018, we celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary.
Once we were together, I asked her what changed her mind about me. “You never stopped being kind and helpful,” she said. “Other guys, if you weren’t interested in them romantically, they would get mean, or blame you, or become some completely different person. But you didn’t. You helped me through some difficult times, even after I rejected you. After we were friends for so long, I got to thinking: I know he’d make a great husband for someone. Why not me?”

See post on HOW TO KEEP A RELATIONSHIP WITHOUT BRINGING DOWN YOUR STANDARDS

Remember, whether you’re cultivating a relationship with a friend, a romantic partner, or a colleague: Trust is all there is. Help wherever and whenever you can.

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
