Differences

It’s easy to talk about relationships when everything is going great, but what do you do when things are headed in the wrong direction?

How do you turn around a relationship?

God created love in relationships and made us to live in relationship with each other. His advice and direction for relationships can make a real difference.

One of our greatest frustrations is when we don’t see things the way someone else sees them. Differences can be a cause of great delight at times, but they can also cause a lot of agony.

Realize that God has made you different and then thank him for your differences.

From the very beginning of the Bible, God created us differently, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27 NIV). Men and women are different physically, but also in the way we work, think, shop, even watch TV – we do everything differently. And we should rejoice in those differences.

That’s the starting point for turning your relationships around – thank God for your differences.

One thought on “Differences

  1. Sometimes we need the reminder of being different. It is always useful to appreciate another’s unique qualities. It is the rejoicing part that is sometimes hard to do when we think that someone should react in the same way as we do. It is then that we forget the difference of those around us. Thanks for the reminder of the facts and the encouragement to recall the effort we need to rejoice.
