Are Your Relationships Healthy?

Guest post by Tal Prince.

We have all sat through some roll calls in our life, and the more formal authority figures sometimes required us to respond, “present.” 

What did you mean when you answered? Did you mean that you were fully there, or did you mean that you were merely physically in the room?

Is that true for you during staff meetings and lunches with friends? Is it sometimes true in your marriage or with your children?

So take all of these gifts and do the next right thing. What that looks like will vary person-to-person but in the end, the proper way to use God's rewards is in obedience to him.
