Keep the Emotional Tank Full
"Happy are those who long to be just and good, for they shall be
completely satisfied." (Matthew 5:6)
Every important relationship you have should be an opportunity to ask
yourself, "How can I keep this person's emotional tank full?" Try to
discover what the people around you need. People have different ways
they express and receive love. We all have different kinds of needs
and different ways that these needs are best met. These differences
are part of what make our relationships exciting and fulfilling! Take
the time to find out what your mate needs and how you can best meet
those needs. Not only will this work in marriage, but in every other
relationship of your life. You'll grow closer to your children, have
more meaningful and fulfilling friendships, and find that your life
takes on a new dimension and purpose when you focus on caring for
A Prayer for Relationships:
God, I thank You for thinking so much of us. You loved us enough to
give us everything. Give me strength so that I may look to fill the
emotional tanks of others around me. Thank You for putting these
special people in my life. In Jesus' name. Amen.

This is great. There's too much going on in the world for us to be divided. Those of us who know God should always be mindful of how to begin and keep good relationships. We also have to share God's love with people who don't know Him so they will want to know Him. Everybody needs somebody!
