In Relationship put Holiness before Happiness

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled
” (Matthew 5:6,

Because you are an imperfect human being, you are not “perfectly” happy, and you won’t have “perfect” relationships – and that’s perfectly okay with God. He is far less concerned with your happiness than He is with your holiness. Max Lucado writes, “You don’t have to be like the world to have an impact on the world. You don’t have to be like the crowd to change the crowd. You don’t have to lower yourself down to their level to lift them up to your level. Holiness doesn’t seek to be odd. Holiness seeks to be like God.”

God continuously reveals Himself in everyday life, but He doesn’t do so in order to make you contented; He does so in order to lead you to His Son. So don’t be overly concerned with your current level of happiness: it will change. Be more concerned with the current state of your relationship with Christ: He does not change. And because your Saviour transcends time and space, you can be comforted in the knowledge that in the end, His joy will become your joy – for all eternity. This is more important than seeking happiness in relationship (though it is praiseworthy to do so). Holiness is more permanent. His joy will surely be yours.

God is Holy and wants you to be holy.
Christ died to make you holy.
Make sure that you response to Christ’s sacrifice is worthy of Him.
So when you think of relationship, please included holiness.
