Christianity and the Importance of Relationships

This post is simple.  I have three opening thoughts for you and then some Bible passages for you to read that I think are connected to those opening thoughts.  I’d love to read comments from any of you that read through the passages to see what connections you made with the opening statements.

1. Ambition can hinder our relationships.

2. Success in pursuing your ambitions does not lead to happiness.

3. People are drawn to religions and find joy from religions, not because of God, but because of relationships.
