It’s common knowledge that words can bless or curse. Our attitude can also lift up or crush another soul. All our circumstances are God’s will for us in Christ Jesus. Every person who crosses our path has been ordained, or brings trials like poor Job experienced. ORDAINED OR ALLOWED, God is working His purposes not ours. And since His ways are higher than our ways we have a lot to learn about relationships.

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” 

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:3- 7 NASB)

What has been our attitude toward those who have been part of our life? What about new people? Are their needs important or a bother?
