TOPIC: THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF RELATIONSHIP
TITLE: THE WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP
INTRODUCTION: There are four basic relationships you must establish, develop and nurture positively. When these fur relationships are positive, it is called Harmonic Relationship. When you achieve them, they will bring ORDER in your life. You will have REST and PEACE.
The four basic relationships are;
1) Your relationship with God
2) Your relationship with yourself
3) Your relationship with others, and
4) Your relationship with things (money, possessions).
When you achieve harmonic (positive) relationships in these four basic relationships, it will result in good health, happiness, love, success, prosperity and positive desired results. Harmonic relationships are based on truth, knowledge, understanding, faith, courage, self confidence and respect. Where there is (disharmonic relationship), it is based on negative unproductive thoughts, habits, and feelings centered on ignorance, fear, doubt, dishonesty and indecision.
Your harmonic relationship with God is that of LOVE. You must love God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind (in your thoughts) – Matthew 22:37-38. How do you show God you love Him? By your commitment to your daily prayers, Bible reading, Tithes, offering, giving to the work of God, serving in a department in church, coming early to church activities and attending Bible study, Prayer meeting and church services all the time without any convenient excuses and by living a holy life style. Every other relationship depends on your relationship with God.
To love yourself is to love God. To love others you must love yourself first. To improve your relationship with others, you must do the following:
1) Make yourself likable – Proverbs 18:24
2) Remember peoples’ names, be happy and smile all the time
3) Express appreciation for what other people do
4) Be lavish in your praise
5) Listen intently, talk less and listen more to people – James 1:19
6) Let the interest of the other person be the topic of your conversion
7) Make the other person feel important
8) Do not criticize, and
9) Be positive, always believe there is a way to achieve the best result.
If you are like this, you will attract good people into your life and repel negative people out of your life.
Lastly, No. 4, Basic relationship is your harmonic relationship with things. God has made you the master over things. You have power of dominion over things – Genesis 1:16. Do not allow material things (treasure, money) to control your life. If you place your values in these materials possessions, they will rule and control you. You cannot serve God and mammon (wealth) Matthew 6:24. Don’t worry about things. Worry does not bless anyone. Worry causes confusion. If you follow today’s teaching, it will guide you and provide you everything you need in life. God bless you.
