Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Protection

February 22nd, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Protection.

According to First Corinthians 13:7, “Love always protects.”

One of the vivid examples of this occurred when Jesus was born. Even as Joseph and Mary were celebrating His delivery, an angel warned Joseph in the middle of the night to get up and take the child and his mother to Egypt. The situation was urgent. Herod was searching for the child to kill him.

Without delay, Joseph got up and took his family to Egypt until the danger had passed.

Joseph serves as an example for us today, to be aware of dangers that threaten the safety of our loved ones, and to take action to protect them. That includes influences that would attempt to lure our loved ones away from God.

Protection is a key element to thriving relationships that honor God.
