Relationship

by Dr Robb Thompson

Don’t Pursue Relationships For Which You Have Not Qualified.
“Zeal without knowledge is not good; a person who moves too quickly may go the wrong way.” Proverbs 19:2 (NLT) “There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under Heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NLT)

Like nothing else on earth, relationships determine the outcome of your life. All other factors of your being—the extent of your intelligence, the graciousness of your appearance, the scope of your background—can modify that outcome, but none are as significant as the richness of your relationships. For this reason, each of us must strive to build the relationships that will launch us into the future we desire. There are people in our life who distract us from our focus and drain us of our energy, but there are also those who invigorate us as readily as a crisp, autumn day. Nevertheless, there is still a time for everything, and stepping into relationships before you are ready to make the required investment can be hazardous. It is like attempting to swim before you take lessons.

Once you discover the people with whom you can build a life, consider what it takes to make the most of those relationships:
• How will you add value to their life?
• What can you do for them that no one else can or will?
• And finally, is now the time to build these relationships?

If it is time, then pull out all the stops and go after it. If it isn’t yet time, learn to wait and prepare, because your time is coming soon.
