Don’t Ignore Relational Tensions

August 16, 2017

“Finding God and living in community are tied together. You cannot pursue one without pursuing the other. Desperate prayer, disciplined fasting, and hours in the Word will not persuade God to reveal himself when we ignore relational tensions. ‘Whoever loves his brother lives in the light…but whoever hates his brother…walks around in the darkness;…the darkness has blinded him’ (1 John 2:10-11).”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Finding God, Page 194

Questions for Reflection:
• Have you been trying to pursue God while avoiding addressing relational tension?
• Take some time to allow the Holy Spirit to bring His light to any darkness in your heart.
• Ask Him for the courage, wisdom and vision to pursue actively the well-being of others, including those with whom you’ve been distant or estranged.
