8Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

9Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

Text: 1 Peter 3:8-12 (KJV)

What is a Family?

Dictionary.com defines family as:

A basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not:

It also defines family as all those persons considered as descendants of a common progenitor.

Therefore family relationship can be defined as a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group whether dwelling together or not but having connections between persons by blood or marriage.

Relationship can be classified into two groups, namely:

Healthy and Unhealthy relationship.

not in a state of good or normal health; in an unsound, weak, or morbid condition.

how do we improve our relationship1
How do we improve our relationship?

Don’t be a mind reader

Say sorry

Don’t take the other person for granted

Be reasonable in the method of teaching (headship is not making all the decisions)

Be responsive to the feelings of the other party

Spend time together (there is something more than making a living, it is sharing lives)

Don’t be judgmental

Respect each other

how do we improve our relationship2
How do we improve our relationship?

Give gifts (not necessarily expensive)

Love each other (1peter 1:22b)

Talk and allow the other to talk also

Putting our knowledge into action (we like to learn new ways but refuse to put what we have learnt into action).

Live peaceably (it is the duty of a Christian not only to embrace peace when offered, but to seek and pursue it when it is denied).

Putting on the grace of God ( the longer we wear the grace of God, the brighter and better God’s grace is on our lives.

what is a healthy relationship1
What is a Healthy Relationship?

My definition of a healthy relationship is a relationship that is one minded, compassionate,

tenderhearted, courteous, full of love, life, good days, no evil, no deceit, a relationship that doeth good, is peaceful it is an answer to prayers.

Is this kind of relationship possible?

Yes…1Peter 3:8-12

slide22

How can we sustain a healthy relationship?

Have respect for each other not fear

Talk about your goals, challenges, etc.

Discuss successes and failures easily without fear or shame

Keep doing whatever works for your home, don’t compare your home with others

Pray together

slide23

Brethren, if we can adhere to 1 Peter 4:8 which says; “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for LOVE WILL COVER A MULTITUDE OF SIN”

I believe the Lord is telling us today that there is something more than making a living, it is sharing lives.

In conclusion;

The reasons for sick (unhealthy) relationships can NEVER be so great that we CAN NEVER have stronger reasons to (have a healthy relationship)!
