The Hard Work of Relationships

While relationships can offer joy, they also require work.  It can feel a bit counterintuitive, but I’m learning that the most important work in a relationship is – almost always – internal.  What really seems to matter most important in relationships is the work we do with ourselves. 

Of course, Jesus was onto that truth long ago.  This Sunday, we’ll continue the view from the mountain as we explore Matthew 5:21-37.  While the rules for external behavior are important – especially in challenging relationships – what really matters is how we find internal clarity.

Hope to see you on Sunday to learn more!
