Have you ever been in a broken relationship? Chances are you have experienced the feeling of emotional drain a time or two in your life. When we are in the midst of a broken relationship it is hard to be our best. Often times the brokenness can consume us. Not only can the brokenness consume us but broken relationships can hinder our relationship with God.
If we have a problem or grievance with a friend or loved one we should resolve the problem as soon as possible. We are hypocrites if we claim to love God while we hate others. Our attitudes towards others reflect our relationship with God.
Matthew 5:23-24 - So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the alter in the temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, leave your sacrifice there at the alter. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come offer your sacrifice to God.
