    The Daniel Plan - July 03, 2016

    SUNDAY - RELATIONAL GLUE

    Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

    The glue that holds healthy relationships together is kindness, compassion, and forgiveness.

    We all make mistakes and fall short, so we all need to give and receive forgiveness on a regular basis.

    Billy Graham said, "Every human being is under construction from conception to death."

    Since we have received enormous forgiveness from God, it's only fair that we treat others the same way.

    Likewise, we have received compassion and kindness from God. He is compassionate and gentle, suffering with us when we suffer.
    That's what our friends need from us: not necessarily fixing the problem, but the gift of our comforting presence.

    We instinctively know how to be kind to a child who skins his knee: we hug and listen, and when the hurt has passed, we coax the child to get up and play again. The same compassion is appropriate when a friend suffers a loss or faces a trial.

    Even adults need physical touch and a listening ear.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    Kindness, compassion, and forgiveness lead to strong relationships that will sustain us through the ups and downs of life.
