“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.”– Philippians 1:3 (NLT)

Life is all about relationships. Unless you live in a cave somewhere and completely isolate yourself from people, every facet of your life touches a relationship in some way.

Just like God created us to have a relationship with Him, He also created us to be in relationship with others. His love is perfected in us as we become more “others-minded.”

This Christmas, let’s be reminded that the best gifts of life do not consist of things, but of people. May we become more intentional about appreciating and valuing the gift of family and friends.
