God created us for community.


Developing Godly Relationships

Love is to be sincere and active … Hate what is evil … hold on tightly to what is good. Be devoted to one another with [authentic] brotherly affection [as members of one family] …

ROMANS 12:9-10

God created us for community. We’re wired for relationships: with our friends, spouse, coworkers, or kids. God intended healthy relationships to be compassionate, sacrificial, honorable, and forgiving. Cultivating those qualities often means surrendering our expectations for our relationships and trusting Him instead.
