RELATIONSHIPS CAN BRING WEALTH
Text – 1 KINGS 5:1-12
The positive strategic relationships in your life are a form of wealth. Some of the wealthiest people in the world today count their wealth in relationships. Build critical relationships. A man of God made a powerful statement that “Dishonour is the seed for loss.” He said, “I cannot tell what your future will look like until I know who you choose to honour.”
Honour is the law that binds and keeps relationships. Anywhere you go, let respect go ahead of you. You can never go wrong in a relationship if you send respect ahead of you. You do not know who is who.Some who occupy positions with power assume that they are almighty and talk without manners; five years later he wishes he did not speak like that. Dishonour is the seed for loss.
Every loss in your life can be traced to someone that you chose to dishonour. If you dishonour God, it will lead to eternal loss. Some people know how to navigate their way in relationships so well that they always have what they need or want while others mismanage relationships so much that, even when they are in need and everything is so tight, nobody is willing to help them.
You can have spiritual relationships and physical relationships. Do an audit of the relationships that are vital to your wealth development in life.Relationships will make or break you. Some people are destroyed by wrong relationships.
Be careful, because one wrong relationship can destroy much good and one good relationship can turn your life around for the better. Just like formal education and critical knowledge, relationship is a higher form of wealth than cash.
PRAYER: Lord, give me wisdom to handle and walk well in critical relationships that are to bring wealth into my life in Jesus’ name.
