Harmony builds Relationship
26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Look at the pigeons. Everyday all of them need food, water, and shelter. It's part of their daily routine for survival. Without either one of them, they might perish or die. Likewise we humans. But can you see the difference between us and them? Unlike them, we need to make ends meet, put food on the table, have a roof over our head.
But in the process of doing all these, often we pursue money more than the things that really matters. Yes, money is important for at least basic survival like food, shelter, transportation. While money is important, life is more than putting food on the table. While money can fulfill the needs of the physical realm, yet there are areas in life than money could not fulfill.
Ultimately, it is building a relationship that completes one's life. Why is that so? A rich man wouldn't donate a large amount to a unknown company unless he has a working relationship with the company. Likewise, we receive blessings from God, because we have a relationship with Him. The reason why we receive is not because we deserve it, but because He is good.
Today make it a point to forge relationship with the people around you. Not because you want to be known all around the world, but because life would be so much better, easier to live as least with a friend whether guy or girl.
