Relationships

God designed people to have relationships with each other. When God created the world, everything
was perfect for Adam. He walked and spoke with God. Adam was healthy and had plenty of good food to eat. But Genesis 2:20 tells us that something was missing from Adam’s life. “The man gave names to all the tame animals, to all the birds in the air, and to all the wild animals. He saw many animals and birds, but he could not find a companion that was right for him.” Adam needed to have a relationship with another person. So God created Eve and brought her to him.

God took care of Adam, and He takes care of us today. God could satisfy all of our needs directly. If we need food, God could drop a basket of fruit and vegetables onto our doorstep. God can meet all our needs, but usually it happens through our relationships with other people. When someone is in need, we are the ones who can give them food, clothes and a place to live. And when someone is lost, we can share the Good News about Jesus with them.

God will use you to show His
love and grace to people around you. Allow Him to use you to help and serve others today.
