Fundamental Importance

"Our relationships are of fundamental importance. Human life may be said to consist of an intricate web of relationships--in the nuclear family, in the wider circle of relatives, among our neighbors, friends, and colleagues. Human maturity is seen in the ability to form stable, loving, and responsible relationships. In this sphere probably all of us betray a lingering immaturity, since we all find difficulty in establishing a satisfactory relationship with some people. Although I have no wish to oversimplify, I am convinced that the major secret of harmony in personal relationships-- at home and at work, in the church and in the community--is to learn to live 'unto Christ'. When this radical adjustment has taken place, others follow naturally." ~ John Stott, Life in Christ, p. 82
