There are only two options in relationships. Either you drift farther apart, or you come closer together. You either learn more about each other and learn to accept our differences, or those differences drive a wedge between us. There is no middle ground, this is how the nature of relationships work. Science tells us that the human mind is only capable of having about 150 relationships. There are people in our lives in which, whether it be a conscious choice or a change in circumstance, we let these relationships fall away. Of course there are important relationships that we want to preserve, a spouse, parent, children, or long term friends. No matter how important those relationships are to us, if we don’t take time to foster them, can become dead.
Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. Jeremiah 31:3
Love is an action. No one can “stay” in love forever. We just try to keep our relationships alive and healthy, if those relationships are worth keeping. Praying, caring, talking, accepting, sharing, loving, and any other tangible things are all ways we can deepen our relationship with each other. Let’s not let too much time and distance separate us from each other. Let us take a little time when we can to connect, and foster our love for each other. I am blessed that I am not alone, I can thank God, He has put amazing people around me.
I await to spend an eternity with all of you. May the Lord bless you all.
