Since I didn’t get any suggestions for an August theme, I decided to continue with another aspect of the unity theme: relationships. If we go back to the beginning of humankind, in the book of Genesis, we see that God created us to be in relationship with Him and with each other. These relationships were to be true unions meant to foster wholeness and health. When sin entered the world, all this changed. Adam becomes fearful of God and tries to avoid Him; He and Eve blame each other for the unfortunate state of affairs created by their misdeeds. Instead of wholeness, we find brokenness; instead of health, disease and death.
The Bible is a book about relationships: God and His people, men and wives, siblings, parents and children, teachers and students, kings and subjects. Feel free, ladies to explore all of them! How are your relationships going? What helps keep relationships strong? What hinders or hurts relationships? Can broken relationships be restored?
There are an unlimited number of ideas to discuss, and everyone is also free to go “off topic” as the Spirit leads. Happy blogging!
