Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
We should seek understanding in our relationships.
Sometimes, our egos get in the way of understanding those who we love and care about. We often have a need to be right that makes what others think and feel so wrong for us.
Empathy, for example holds many relationships together. It allows us to slow down and walk in the shoes of those we love.
Understanding helps us center our relationship in Christ.
