1. There's got to be love!

You can't be in a good relationship with someone if you hate them. There needs to be love, whether it's towards God firstly, your partner, your family, your friends and even towards your self. Love is the key ingredient that keeps any relationship on track. It's only when the love part is allowed to grow cold that a relationship winds up in trouble. The Bible talks about in the last days, the love of many waxing cold in God, that's a process it's referring too. It doesn't necessarily happen overnight but if you don't fan the flames of love, it can start to grow cold. In terms of our God life, we need to let the Holy ghost do some shedding abroad of the love of God in our hearts, so that we keep a strong connection with him. Its crucial that you keep the bonds of love strong and true towards those your in relationship with, it's the key component to making it work! Remember, love is the foundation upon which good relationships grow.
