7 Day Relationship Challenge- 4
Here are 7 of the top Christian principles can help your marriage or dating relationship.
4. Ask Questions and Listen More
The health of your relationships will be directly linked to the health of your communication. Most of us have no trouble filling the air with our own words and worries. We struggle, however, to really listen and understand what others are going through. So if you want to really make your spouse, your kids, your boyfriend or girlfriend, your coworkers, or even just a stranger you meet on the subway feel like you really love them, make sure you ask good questions and be a good listener.
The Lord listens to us, and if want to love others well and have great relationships, we need to slow down and actually listen to what other people are saying: In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears. (Psalm 18:6)
“I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. 2 Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.” (Psalm 116:1-2)
Christian relationship advice: Your significant other will love being around you if you are good listener.
