The most important relationship

If a survey were taken and the question asked, "Is there someone you consider very special?" most people would probably answer "Yes." That special someone could be a husband or wife, a mother, father, or other relative, a best friend—maybe even a hero. However important we feel this someone is, we may at some point need to closely examine this relationship and its bearing on the spiritual growth of both people involved.

After reading this far, perhaps you are thinking this article may be helpful to someone you know but doesn't apply to you. If that's the case, ask yourself, "Do I consider my special someone essential to my well-being? Do I depend on this person for my happiness and joy, my wisdom and guidance?" Perhaps you can honestly answer "No." Some may have reached the point where they find their overriding love and comfort in a realization that God is All and fills all space. Then there are others, like me, who are learning this all-important lesson by degrees.
