Matthew 7:1-29

1: the foundation for strong, healthy, lasting relationships
2: how tell a good relationship versus a bad one 
3: how to build strong, healthy, lasting relationships 

The foundation for strong, healthy, lasting relationships - Matthew 7:1-6

What is a "plank?" 

"Right relationship with God always leads to right relationship with others!"

Right relationship with God involves God taking things out of our lives: 

1- selfishness -
2- fear -
3- pride -

We must give God access to our hearts - to forgive, cleanse, and heal our heart!

Right relationship with God means God adding things into our lives.

Matthew 7:7-14 (V14) "how much more will  your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him."

-God wants to add into your life a trust in Him -
-God want to add into your life the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ 
-God wants to add into your life strong, healthy lasting relationships 

How do you tell a strong, healthy, lasting relationship (a good relationship) from a bad one?

Matthew 7:15-20 - By the "fruit" of the relationship!

Galatians 5:24-25 "the fruit of the Spirit is ..."

James 3:13-18 "the wisdom that comes down from above is first pure, peaceable, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits."

You can tell a good relationship from a bad relationship by -

-A good relationship helps our relationship with God!
-A bad relationship hinders our relationship with God!

How to build a strong, healthy, lasting relationship

Matthew 7:24-27

Strong, healthy, lasting relationships are built; they do not just happen!

You can build your relationships on the rock, or...

The "Golden Rule" of building relationships -

Matthew 7:12

"whatever you want men to do to you, you also do to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

-How would YOU want this other person to treat you? 
-How would God treat this person?
