Life is all about choices, especially in the area of relationships.
As Psalm 1 says, we need to watch who we walk with, stand with, and sit with.
It is good to work out who are in the top twenty people we relate with and then ask;
- Does this relationship take from me. These are the people we reach out to help.
- Is this realationship helping me, and in turn, I am helping them. These are our peers.
- Who are the people that I receive from. These are our mentors in life.
I have found I need a good balance of relationships in my life, especially watching, and being very intentional who minister into my life.
When we delight in God's ways, we shall be like:
'A tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.'
