Vital Relationships

Today's reading: Genesis 14:1-16

Because of war between the kings of several clans in and around Sodom, Lot and his family are taken captive when the enemies of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah prevail in battle. When word of Lot’s capture and abduction reaches Abram, he immediately sets a plan of rescue into action, which includes two of his neighbors. Thankfully for Lot, he and his family and possessions are rescued and returned safely to Sodom.

The word "relationship" repeatedly came to my mind as I took in and thought about this chapter--the partnering and power relationships between the kings, the family relationship between Abram and Lot, the friendship and ally relationship between Abram and his neighbors. All of these differing relationships highlight how God created us as relational beings. We need other people, and other people need us. Pretty much everything we do involves other people in some fashion. And when you think about it, many seemingly insurmountable tasks can be accomplished when we join together in relationship.

What are some key relationships/friendships in your life (family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, business partners)? Would you say you are a relationship builder? Why is this so important? How can you make the relationships you have even stronger going forward? Tami
