Relationships can be really tricky to manage. There’s so many different types of relationships, and balancing them all with everything else that we need to do in our daily lives can be difficult. In the Bible we often hear about showing love to others and to God, and this is where our relationships should be rooted. This week we’re going to explore relationships in a bit more depth, and not just the stereotypical “romantic” relationships but our deeper relationships of friendship and family.

Today is the feast day of St Teresa of Avila. She had a really interesting life, spending a lot of time in doubt and worry, unsure of what path to take. When she was young she struggled to balance her relationships with her Father and her Mother. Her father was an incredibly honest and pious man, who always taught his children not to lie. Her mother loved romantic novels, but her husband objected to these so she hid them from him. Teresa loved these novels too, but her mother told her not to tell her father that she had them. Teresa really struggled with this, should she tell her father and not lie or should she keep her promise to her mother? This is just one example of her trying to juggle her two very different relationships.

 

Have you ever had a time when you have had two conflicting relationships?

 

How do you manage your relationships and stress?

Today we’re going to spend some time in quiet reflection. It can be hard to find time in the week to just think about what is going on, and this time is a good opportunity to just take a step back and think.  Play the video clip below and listen to the whole song. Whilst you do, spend some time thinking about the questions below.

What is your relationship like with God? What words come to mind when you first think of Him?

Do you ever struggle to maintain your relationships? What do you think you could do to try and make them better?
