The account of our Lord’s dealings with Mary and her sibling is one with enormous spiritual insights. Albeit, we would only take a toll on the aspects of their relationship to further our knowledge on covenant relationship.
Just as our grace level grows proportionately to the level of the knowledge of God we have. So also do the knowledge of one another we have afford us with a measure of grace with one another necessary for an effective purposeful relationship.
Continuing with the series on covenant relationship, the friendship of David and Jonathan highlights enormously the terms that compose the content of what constitutes covenant relationship. There would be no where in the church where the subject of friendship is being discussed that references would not be made to David and Jonathan’s. There doesn’t seem to be a godlier example of friendship in the Bible.
Friendship with mutual privilege to each other and covenant friendship is the two basic relationship a Christian needs to make a successful journey of his/her life. Get details on covenant relationship here.

The case of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is another biblical examples of Covenant relationships that is completely Divine.

Ladies take guys word too seriously. Guys can say something now and tomorrow they’ve forgotten; Especially when under influence. Though they are not like ladies that are influenced by biological cycles They still have their own cycle_like success, failure, happy mood, loneliness(especially), crisis and idleness too. Daughter: So true
Someone can pray for oneself; I used to pray and try to be friends to people like they are my siblings. And learn to feel free when people say words like: ‘I love you’. Just say ThANK YOU, That’s one way to show is nothing. To say I love You actually is nothing is just because we are in an African setting. Daughter: Yes ooh! Our society made it so as you say. Father: When one loves YOU he goes beyond the words to make it work. Love is meant to be expressed and not merely confessed. However when ladies say I ‘love you’. It means a lot so they hardly say it.
Life of relationship is like a Ladder, Everyone is trying to reach up. So the realities that Someone will be aiming to have the expression of his love accepted by another somewhat higher While someone somewhere lower is wishing to have him take his love expression. The implication of this is on the ladies whose integrity it is to say yes. A lady must not give herself cheaply to any guy… That does not imply doing preventive shakara. But it does mean not falling for a guy/putting your heart in it until he proves and makes it work.
Love is an exercise of the divine will in deliberate choice, made without assignable cause save that which lies in the nature of God Himself.
