- Define the word, "healing."
- What are ways that you could mend a broken relationship?
Reading: Matthew 17: 14-21
When you think of the word "healing" you probably envision doctors, hospitals, and cures for all that ails us. When someone is sick or has been diagnosed with a deadly disease, we want them to be healed. We want them to be better. We want them to be "normal."
When you think of the word "healing" you probably do not think of relationships. But often they need to be healed, too. Incidents and actions may occur that cause us to distance ourselves from people who at one time we were close to. We may hear things about people and react accordingly, even if we don't know for certain that it is true.
Healing in relationships sometimes takes time. But over time, we can mend broken relations and "start anew." Or, maybe there is someone you haven't talked to in awhile. Your relationship may be fine, but it may just be nonexistent because you haven't spoken for awhile. Get on the phone and call that person today, or drop them a letter. Mend those broken relationships. Life is too short not to. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Pray for the healing of broken relationships.
