Relationships are very important to God. After all, that’s why He sent Jesus to earth to have a relationship with mankind. God created the family unit, and God gave us the desire for friendship. When strife interferes with our relationships, it can affect every area of our lives. But there is hope! It is possible to heal broken relationships and restore what God created.
14 “Sometimes what makes us insecure and vulnerable becomes the fuel we need to be overachievers. The antidote for a snakebite is made from the poison, and the thing that made you go backward is the same force that will push you forward.” – T.D. Jakes
13 When you’re in a tough situation, just keep being your best and keep honoring God. He has already given you the strength, wisdom and favor to not only to make it through, but to come out better than you were before. – Noel Jones
12 Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. Proverbs 17:9
11 Four of the Ten Commandments deal with our relationship to God while the other six deal with our relationships with people. But all ten are about relationships. – Rick Warren

9 We each ought to take heed that our boldness to talk to others about problems with the boss or pastor or spouse is not just a pretense for self righteousness, pride and dishonor. – Francis Frangipane
8 Love is stronger than faith. Faith will provoke divine manifestations, but love will bring God down in person, for he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him. God will manifest Himself in response to your faith, but you become a manifestation yourself when you are soaked in the love of God. – David Oyedepo
7 Marital faithfulness involves more than just sexual fidelity. Being faithful to your wife also means defending her and affirming her beauty, intelligence, and integrity at all times, particularly before other people. Faithfulness to your husband means sticking up for him, always building him up and never tearing him down. Marital fidelity means that your spouse’s health, happiness, security, and welfare take a higher place in your life than anything else except your own relationship with the Lord. – Myles Munroe
6 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude….Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Henry Ward Beecher Jack Hyles
3 Jesus didn’t wait until we got better to die for us. He died when we were in our most unlovely state. The person who doesn’t deserve love actually needs love more, not less. If you know someone unworthy of love, that’s great! You now have a chance to emulate Christ, because the essence of His love is unconditional. – Tony Evans
