While recently attending a conference with other teachers, I was talking with teachers from other school districts that I often only see once a year. As we talked, it was a reminder about relationships and the importance of building relationships. It is good "to know people" and to share ideas. It is also important to remember that our most important relationship is with God!
We cannot forget to build our relationship with God. He is ready and willing, but we need to be ready and willing, too! We can talk to God through prayer and learn about Him through reading His Word, but having a relationship goes deeper. We need to know God better. We have to trust in Him. We have to listen when He is calling us and we need to act on His Truth and promises. We can have a deeper relationship as long as we let God know we're ready!
While it is important to "know people," it is even more important to know God!
Thank You for wanting to have a relationship with me. Help me to continually grow closer to You in a deeper relationship. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
