Relationship is key in human life, So paramount that, you become irrelevant if you fail to relate well.
In one of the definitions of relationship, it is defined as a connection between two individuals or more, such as the one that exists between parent and child, and a romantic one such as husband & wife.
Individuals can also have relationships with groups of people, such as the relation between a Pastor and his congregation, an uncle and a family, or a mayor and a town, a President and his countrymen and much more God and his loving people.
There is an intimate relationship in heaven between the Trinity.
If not so there wouldn’t have been a counsel in heaven before human creation. The bible declared in Gen. 1:26 ‘And God said, let us make man in our own image, after our own likeness….
’ The word ‘us and our’ is a collective term. It is a shared responsibility. They all believed in that statement, they all agreed it will work.
As a person and as an individual we are all involved in one form of relationship or the other. The question is, are you relating well?
All relationships involve some level of interdependence. People in a relationship tend to influence each other, share their thoughts and feelings, and engage in activities together.
Because of this interdependence, anything that changes or impacts one member of the relationship will have some level of impact on the other member.
Are you not a snub? Do you consider the feelings of others regarding your actions? People talk of having close relationships with each other because they can intimate and share feelings and thoughts.
They have confidence and can easily rely on each other. What does close relationships offer those who have one? It offers emotional wellbeing, a kind of connection that lasts a lifespan. If you have had one you’ll know. Maybe a Brother, Sister, Uncle, dad, Mum or a Friend. The bonding is so strong that distance and time cannot severe it.
A friend once told me, whether true or false, it made sense that the word fellowship was coined in Jesus’ time. As at that time, he always preached to his disciples mostly on a ship. The disciples were fellow countrymen. So their coming together on the boat was regarded as fellowship. The meaning of the word’ fellowship’ however, supports this as the word was defined as ‘the association of people having similar taste’. In your existing relationship I hope you do have the same agenda with your partner(s) and that yours is not contrary?
