Relationships Teaching Notes

The Art of Getting Along: Living the Life God Intends by Jill Briscoe
Harmony is concord or agreement. Another word for harmony is “peace” – and making peace is often very hard work. For example, it took a few hundred diplomats to work out a peace agreement in May 1983 to end the conflict between Israel and Lebanon that began in 1982. Then it took thousands of soldiers to enforce and maintain the peace. The same principle is true for believers: achieving harmony is hard, but being a peacekeeper once a truce is declared is even harder. It’s a spiritual art... ( read more )

Missionary Dating by Renee Fisher
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. - James 4:4 The phrase “missionary dating” applies when a Christian pursues a relationship with someone of a different faith. This is a hot topic today, just as it was in biblical times. Paul said that we are not the same as those who do not believe. So do not join your- selves to them. Good and bad do not belong together. Light and darkness cannot share the same space (see 2 Corinthians 6:14). ( read more )

Loving Those Who Drive Us Crazy! by Jill Briscoe
Paul writes, “Love is patient and kind” (1 Cor. 13:4). Most of us find that we can love those who are easy to love, but what about those who are hard to love or those who drive us up the wall?

Our Mothers, Ourselves (3 of 8) by Stasi Eldredge
I am keenly aware that for many women, these two chapters about our mothers can be difficult. If we are mothers ourselves, part of the difficulty comes from our awareness of how we have failed our own children. And for every woman, the larger difficulty comes from the fact that our relationship with our mother is fraught with many emotions. It is sacred ground. So as always, we want to begin with prayer. Jesus, I need your mercy, your courage, and your boundless grace. I consecrate my life to you again right now. I consecrate my memory, my hopes... ( read more )

Still Single by Renee Fisher
I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them . . . and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. - Jeremiah 32:39-40 One of the exhibitors at the True Woman Conference in Chicago asked me, “How it is possible that you’re still single?” I thought I’d found my new best friend. I would love to find out the answer to that question... ( read more )
