(PART 1)

You and I were created to have godly relationships with others. The Holy Spirit, who gives us wisdom in all things, will empower and guide us in establishing and maintaining healthy associations that will last.

(PART 2)

God blesses unity in our relationships. He is a God of peace, and in His Word He shows us how important it is that we live in that powerful and godly state, without compromise. God will provide you with the help you need in order to have successful, nurturing connections with other people.

PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You that in all my associations, You are Lord. I am a representative of Your kingdom, and the Spirit of Christ, which dwells powerfully within me, can bring peace and joy to all my relationships. Amen.
