In my life, and unfortynately it took me a large portion of it for me to learn this, the number one realationship is with God. All other relationships come after that.
If you take 2 people and make God the center, then you have a rope of 3 strands which is hard to break.
In a recent bible study, we talked about Hollywoods way vs. God’s way for lasting relationships.
- FIND the right person
- FALL in love
- FIX your hopes and dreams on this person for your future fulfillment.
- If FAILURE occurs, repeat 1,2, and 3.
- BECOME the right person
- WALK in love.
- FIX your hope on God and seek to please Him through this relationship
- If FAILURE occurs, repeat steps 1,2 and 3.
God’s presecription has a much higher success
