THE BEST QUESTION EVER FOR RELATIONSHIPS

What Is The WISEST Thing To do
In light of my past experience, my present circumstance & my future hopes & dreams.

1) THEY RECOGNIZED GODLY CHARACTER.
Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! Songs 1:3
A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. Proverbs 12:4


2) THEY BUILT GODLY TRUST.
Dark am I, yet lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon.  Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun. My mother's sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I have neglected. Songs 1:5-6

3) THEY PRACTICED GODLY STANDARDS.
Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock and where you rest your sheep at midday. Why should I be like a veiled woman beside the flocks of your friends?   Songs 1:7

I WILL NOT: 
*SACRIFICE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
*COMPROMISE GOD’S STANDARDS.
*PLAY HOUSE
.

4) THEY GREW WITH GODLY ENCOURAGEMENT.

I liken you, my darling, to a mare harnessed to one of the chariots of Pharaoh.
Songs 1:9
While the king was at his table, my perfume spread its fragrance. My lover is to me a sachet of myrrh resting between my breasts. Songs 1:12-13
How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves. How handsome you are, my lover… Songs 1:15-16


THE RESULT:
SHE FEELS SPECIAL.

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens. Songs 2:1
He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.  Songs 2:4

SHE FEELS SECURE.
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. Songs 2:3

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care!
