The Problem That Destroys Relationships
How to create and sustain godly relationships
Sin nature is natural. You don’t need to teach babies to be selfish; they are born that way by default. This self-centered attitude isn’t something that wanes with age—the world encourages and even lauds those who focus on themselves and what’s best for them.
However, bringing our selfishness into relationships causes serious consequences. It is the exact opposite of God’s description of love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5 says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.”
Esteeming others instead of self-esteem (Philippians 2:3), showing grace and mercy, and not keeping track of the other person’s mistakes are pillars of true love.
