If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)
Nearly every facet of our lives touches a relationship in some way. The family is the closest relationship to our hearts, followed by trustworthy friends. The people we treasure the most are those who love us in spite of our faults and our failures. These rare jewels are the friends with whom we want to spend time and share lifeís experiences.
Relationships can either brighten our days or turn blue skies gray. They are the source of our greatest joy and deepest pain. When relationships go wrong, we need Godís wisdom to give us understanding and discernment so we can deal with matters effectively. Godís wisdom, coupled with prayer, can change hearts and provide a new perspective. Wisdom is a promise of God thatís invaluable in our day-to-day living for Christ.
In addition to Godís wisdom, we need His love to have successful relationships. Some people are not easy to love, and we need Christís love shining through us to them. We need His love to help us look past human flaws and overlook offences. All of our relationships need the love of Christ. Though we cannot love perfectly, we can abide in Christ and grow in His love. Relationships are a necessary part of life, but let us not forget that Jesus is the most valuable relationship we have.
