Choosing Relationships Wisely

Nurture the important ones.

Restore the broken ones.

Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Sever the harmful ones.


Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

Initiate some meaningful ones.

Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
