Do my relationships reflect a clean heart?
Is my heart pure when it comes to relating to those around me? I am reminded of working at The Glen and learning about the Relational Covenant:
* talk to not about
* believe the best
* stand shoulder to shoulder
These are the standards that I feel would describe relationships reflecting a clean heart.
So, as I look at this list - can I say that I am living this out? Sadly, I know that my answer would be that I am not and I am not happy to say that.
Looking over the above list, I'd say my biggest struggle would be the second one - believing the best. Why does my mind go to other places when considering shy someone said what they said or did what they did?
So, my goals in this area for improvement will be to post the Relational Covenant in my home and then by God's grace and through His strength, trust Him to live this out through me.
