Yesterday, we had the privilege of having Don and Julie Steadman come and talk to our students about the importance of relationships.
They discussed with our students how we have been made for relationships. This need was made clear at the very beginning of creation. After making Adam and placing him in the Garden to take care of the His creation the Lord God said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him,” Genesis 2:18.
In Ecclesiastes 4:12 the author states “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A chord of three strands is not easily broken.”
Proverbs 27:17 states “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”
The passages in the Bible for the importance of relationships are numerous and that is what the Steadman’s communicated to our students. That in whatever stage of life they are in they need to have good, healthy relationships. Here at Link Year these students have been learning how to cultivate those all year long and they will know how to carry that on with them in whatever the next stage of life may hold.
