Thursday – Relationship Advice

I did a quick Google search on advice for relationships, and I found everything from “Getting a Better Husband Tool Kit” to using innovation techniques from Apple to invigorate relationships. It was interesting reading. The Bible is also filled with relational advice, and it takes the form of “one anothers.” It says we should “love one another,” “honor one another,” “live in harmony with one another,” “don’t judge one another,” “serve one another,” “forgive one another,” “encourage one another”—there’s more but I’m sure you get my point. (It also says to “greet one another with a holy kiss.” This is not directly relevant, but it keeps relational encounters interesting!) All of this keeps the focus on the main thing: relationships are what we do with and for one another. This is needed in an age when common advice are things like “get over it,” “it’s just mid-life crisis,” or “make yourself more attractive.” The “one anothers” of Scripture give us something to do and something to which we can aspire.
