[Ep. 505] Friends Can Take You Places

God created us for relationships with others. 

Genesis 2:18 says that it’s not good for man to be alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says two are better than one. Proverbs 27:17 says that as iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend.

Everyone needs friends, but what kind of friends? What does a good friend look like? How do we find one? How do we keep one? How do we become one? How do we avoid bad relationships?

In this episode, you’ll learn about the importance of friends, the role they play in your life, and what God’s Word says about picking the right friends.

[Ep. 489] The Attitude You Need

 

Are you and your spouse as close as you would like to be? If not, are you prepared to do what it takes to change that?

Many couples find themselves stuck in what we call “maintenance mode.”  That’s a relationship where you don’t talk, except in a to-do list format. In that mode, it can be difficult to get close and stay close.

If you don’t work at building a close relationship you will drift apart. The differences that God intended to be a help to your marriage will start to become something that drives a wedge.

The world’s system is a perfect storm for trying to keep men and women upset at each other because of their differences, but God’s Word has the insights you need to have the close and fulfilling relationship that you want!
