Should You Keep A Relationship, No Matter The Cost?

Relationships are crucial to your success, impact, and legacy. Because of this, we can become vulnerable to those we consider important. This vulnerability can sometimes lead us to compromise our principles just to maintain the relationship. This is a dangerous flaw that many might not even realize. It’s essential to be aware of this tendency and ensure that our relationships are built on a foundation of mutual respect and integrity. Maintaining strong principles is key to nurturing healthy and impactful connections, without which we risk losing our true selves and the essence of our mission.

We must understand that God is our source. Our relationship with Him is ultimate, and there is no human being that is indispensable. As Proverbs 29:25 says, “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.” Trusting in God ensures that we uphold our principles, even in the face of pressure to compromise. If you think about it, you will realise that you cannot build anything lasting on anything other than the truth. A genuine relationship will undoubtedly bruise the egos of those involved. Either that, or you become a yes-man.

You should not have permanent relationships, but rather permanent principles. A relationship is sustained and nurtured by the core values we share, not by the ego we are massaging. Do not become a man-pleaser, as this is detestable to the Lord. Prioritize integrity and faithfulness to God’s truth above all else. This approach not only honors God but also fosters genuine and lasting relationships built on mutual respect and shared values. Reflect on your current relationships and ensure they align with your principles. Seek God’s guidance to remain steadfast in truth, creating a legacy of integrity and faithfulness.
