Here is an easy, painless, and guaranteed way to deal with the relational challenges of the holidays (if video screen does not appear below, click here [1]).

Actually, there is no such thing as an easy, painless, and guaranteed way to deal with relational challenges.

Like everything else of real value, relationships are worthy of a significant investment of time, planning, and emotional energy. Here are a few practical ways you can invest in your relationships during the holidays, during personal conversations and family gatherings.

Most importantly, bring Jesus into your conversations. Speak of him not as a distant God but as your personal friend (John 15:15), your brother (Heb. 2:11), as someone you talked with this morning, someone who has lavished his love on you, someone who brings you more joy, peace, and hope than you ever thought possible. Speak of him in a way that makes others want to know him too.

Invest deliberately and generously in your relationships in the weeks ahead, and you may find that this is the best Thanksgiving and the most relational Christmas you’ve ever known.
