Reflections: Relationships are the Most Important Things in Life
a devotion

Written by Karen Brewer, Publisher

The most important things in life are our relationships – after our relationship with God, our relationships with family and friends.
When we come to the close of our lives here on earth, most important to us will not be our diplomas, or our work, or our material possessions, but the presence of our close family and friends. That is what is most important to us at death, and that is most important during our lives.

Through the years, as death parts us from many family members and friends, our relationships become more precious, and we know their value, and we feel their loss, especially when death takes those family and friends who seemed larger than life to us. Each life is as a vapor, as the book of James says, that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Each life is fragile. Each life is fleeting. No day and no one should be taken for granted.
