Today we are looking at how we can have favor and good esteem in our relationships. Unfortunately many people find themselves in relationships that are strained, there’s a lack of communication, a lack of favor, mistrust and resentment seem to be ruling but we can see a turnaround / a divine reversal but it just might take some effort on our part.
This passage of scripture gives us keys to seeing our relationships filled with favor and good understanding.
Proverbs 3:3-4 (AMP) Let not mercy and kindness [shutting out all hatred and selfishness] and truth [shutting out all deliberate hypocrisy or falsehood] forsake you; bind them about your neck, write them upon the tablet of your heart. [Col. 3:9-12.] So shall you find favor, good understanding, and high esteem in the sight [or judgment] of God and man. [Luke 2:52.]
