Life Is All About Relationships

Written by: Okoli Samuel and RCB editors

|Edit Article

From the Ten Commandments, it is very clear what matters most to God-relationships. First four of the commandments talk about your relationship with God, the remaining six, about your relationship with your fellow human. 

But all of the ten is about relationships! It is called vertical and horizontal relationships. Jesus also understand this truth.
Matthew 22:37-New International Version (NIV)
Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
When people are about to breath their last on sick beds, they don't ask for their achievements, accomplishments, diplomas, houses or cars, they don't ask for things or objects but for people they love and with whom they have relationship with.

They want people around them. Therefore, treasure the relationships in your life-whether with your siblings, parents, friends and colleagues at working place. The importance or relevance of relationships can't be overestimated. Many lives have been permanently changed. 

Relationships will provide you with encouragement, support to your dreams, vision and aspirations in life. Don't underrate relationships, it can make or mar you. Relationships is what life is all about. Value it, nurture it, improve it and put your best into it.

Below is a Story Titled – Good Legacy Speaks Good Behind Us

Note This Story has already been published on this blog with the Url –
But it’s worth revisiting, so that we understand more about the significance of relationships.

At the point of death, a man, Tom Smith, called his children and he advised them to follow his footsteps so that they can have peace of mind in all that they do.
His daughter, Sara, said,

"Daddy, it’s unfortunate you are dying without a penny in your bank. Other fathers' that you tag as being corrupt, thieves of public funds left houses and properties for their children; even this house we live in is a rented apartment.. Sorry, I can't emulate you, just go, let's chart our own course.

Few moments later, their father gave up the spirit.
Three years later, Sara went for an interview in a multinational company.
At interview the Chairman of the committee asked,

"Which Smith are you...?”
Sara replied.

"I am Sara Smith. My Dad Tom Smith is now late...”
Chairman cuts in,
"O my God, you are Tom Smith's daughter..?"

He turned to the other members and said,
"This Smith man was the one that signed my membership form into the Institute of Administrators and his recommendation earned me where I am today. He did all these free. I didn't even know his address, he never knew me. He just did it for me...”
He turned to Sara,

"I have no questions for you, consider yourself as having gotten this job, and come tomorrow, your letter will be waiting for you...”
Sara Smith became the Corporate Affairs Manager of the company with two Cars with Drivers, A duplex attached to the office, and a salary of £1, 00,000 per month excluding allowances and other costs...

After two years of working in the company, the MD of the company came from America to announce his intention to resign and needed a replacement. A personality with high integrity was sought after, again the company's Consultant nominated Sara Smith...

In an interview, she was asked the secret of her success
With tears, she replied,
"My Daddy paved these ways for me. It was after he died that I knew that he was financially poor but enormously rich in integrity, discipline and honesty"
She was asked again, why she is weeping since she is no longer a kid as to miss her dad still after a long time...

She replied,
"At the point of death, I insulted my dad for being an honest man of integrity. I hope he will forgive me in his grave now. I didn't work for all these, he did it for me to just walk in".

So, finally she was asked, "Will you follow your father's footsteps as he requested?”
And her simple answer was,
"l now adore the man, I have a big picture of him in my living room and at the entrance of my house. He deserves whatever I have after God".

  • Are you like Tom Smith..?
  • It pays to build a name and make healthy relationships, the reward doesn't come quickly but it will come however long it may take and it lasts longer.
  • Integrity, discipline, self-control and fear of God makes a man wealthy, not the fat bank account.
  • Leave a good heritage and LEGACY for your children to inherit and benefit from. And this can only be achieved by creating healthy relationships with people while you are alive.
A good legacy should be earned, it speaks far more than we can ever imagine!
