Relationships? (Prov. 3:5-6)

How many do you have? Relationships?

Take a moment, the total, though under-estimated, will surprise you.

At home, at work, at school, at church... you get the idea.

Okay, I am defining "relationship" as anyone who knows,... okay they might forget, my name, but because I have interacted with them, they have established an opinion of me.

And therefore are predisposed to react to me in a certain way if confronted with me again.

That person, after experiencing you, after what ever time has passed, how ever God has convicted you and provided Grace to overcome, when your paths cross again, do you think you can possibly know what to say or respond?

Only God understands explicitly your relationships. Therefore, then, because of this, we should look to His insight and understanding to give us "the" response to those we should again come across and have to give an answer to. Of course "again" is the additive to the concept. The concept that we should "look to His insight and understanding" in every situation, with every person, what ever our relationship and trust and then obey. The obey part speaks of our response to whom ever we are relating to. The "whom-ever" are those in our path.

This is an argument for Prov. 3:5-6
