God's Instructions For Healthy Relationships-one

Is that catchy for a book?...or, to help it sell should it be...
"A How To For Getting Along With People"...
may be...
"Relationships For Dummies"... (is that already taken?)
could be...
"Managing the Stain of Personal Relationships"
well, anyway...
I was reading the Bible (the real "how to") to find some help from His wisdom with a few little one's - well, really, for mothering...I've been feeling a little frazzled...sorry, wondering...

Do you know what I think the practical FIRST step to getting along with people is?
No, it's not hiding, or running, or eating chocolate (though I can't see how the latter hurts any).
Well, tell me YOUR guesses and I will continue this post a little later....

Here's a picture, just because they are so cute!!!


  1. Getting past self?

    Unconditional love?

    Putting others before self?

    Asking Jesus to find *something* to help us to love them like He does?

    Prayer and fasting ;-)

    Okay????...tell me Shonni!

  2. Hmmm! I'm such a first born, I'm thinking "I don't want to get it WRONG!" :) Hehe! I think the Bible sums it up this way "Love because he first loved us!"

    But then I have to wonder HOW, when I myself am often so unlovely.

    So I am reminded "In him, all things are possible"

    Which brings me to "No one comes to the Father except through Christ Jesus."

    I guess all this to say, getting past self requires putting Christ first and then others!

    "The last shall be first..." and so on. :)

    Your turn it's probably WRONG! HA
