A REAL GUIDE TO RELATIONSHIPS! Everyone seems to have the answer to how to have great and proper relationships. There are books, videos, movies, TV programs and even movies telling everyone how to have good relationships in their life. Now we have all kinds of dating and marriage websites that will help to find the proper and lifetime relationship we may be seeking. When you really think about it the Bible points us to Jesus and reveals that in Him we are taught all we need to know about relationships, humility and worship. We tend to make life far too complicated.
The Apostle Paul gave us the real key to relationship building in this bible passage, "In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father," (Philippians 2:5-11 NIV). When we read this bible passage and apply it to our own lives in how we approach relationships with humility, how we are willing to sacrifice for relationships, and how we see our relationship with God and with others we will be able to build the kind of relationships that God desires we have.
