Great Relationships God’s Way – September 23, 2016

Sunday at Cottonwood Creek, I began a new teaching series titled ‘Relationship Goals’ God’s Way. My guess, if you are like many others, you have a relationship or two that is struggling.
If you missed my previous blogs concerning love’s preeminence and its properties concerning others, you can find them on my daily blog.

Today, I simply want you to read 1 Corinthians 13 as you head into your weekend. Paul said, “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor… but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs….7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails… 13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

That is the recipe for great relationships God’s way.

Think about that and have a blessed weekend!
