Cultivating Relationships

What do we learn about building relationships from Jesus’ example? (We’ll specifically look at things we see in the gospel of John)

Every woman I know struggles with relationships with other women in one area or another. Some feel lonely and disconnected. Others feel inadequate in their ability to develop meaningful connections. Some find it difficult to take a relationship beyond the surface level. Many find it scary to be their true selves, and worry that others would never actually accept the “real” them. Perhaps we find ourselves feeling anxious about what someone else thinks of us. We all have that ideal of what we want our relationships with other women to look like, and usually our actual experience falls short. And most of us likely look around and feel like everyone else is better at this than we are, is more connected, has better friendships than we do. Some of us may not see the value in having deeper relationships and don’t have much interest in engaging or pursuing people at all. It feels like a lot of work, for something that often winds up messy and complicated. Maybe we’ve opened ourselves up, only to get burned in the process. Whatever our feelings on relationships are, God has shared his heart with us on this matter, and has made it clear that how we engage each other matters (as seen in John 13:34-35) So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.
