Matthew 5:23-24
23 Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and the come and present your offering.

THE PRINCIPLE OF RELATIONSHIP

"The closer our relationship with our family, the greater our influence." It is in building a relationship with each member of our family that we can have an influence in their lives. We can do it when we affirm, communicate and spend time with them.
However, some parents tend to do the opposite. They constantly criticize their children, give unreasonable rules, play favoritism, shout at children out of bad temper, and become too busy to listen and communicate. They pretend to be good Christians in church but at home they are not. All the provoke children to lose heart and get hurt - and it is called a wounded spirit.

We know that children are wounded when they turn quiet, withdrawn, critical, sarcastic, or disrespectful. Worse yet is some children put themselves in danger, leave their home, leave the church, or even denounce their faith. When we see any of these symptoms, it is time to lovingly reboot the relationship.


REBOOT YOUR RELATIONSHIPS


God wants us to live in harmony. However, conflict in a relationship is inevitable because people are diverse. When conflict arises, our default mode is either to avoid or to attack; to pretend nothing happened or to gossip about the other person. But conflicts can actually be a blessing especially when we learn how to lovingly reboot relationships. So how do we do it?
