Relationships – JAM

A July Tennessean article was titled: “Close ties with others may boost longevity”. The article summarized the latest findings of researchers that show family and friend relationships has as much to do with good health and long life than not smoking or saying no to drugs. The research reviewed 148 studies that involved a third of a million people and consistently found that those of us with close relationships are 50% more likely to enjoy long life. The fact is God created us for community, for relationships. After making Adam God declared, “It is not good that man should be alone.” God made Eve and instituted the first marriage. The NT church is much about relationships. The church is a family with God as the Father and Christians as brothers and sisters. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
