Relational Equity

Our culture is obsessed with Instant

Instant food

Instant Access 

Instant Wealth

Instant Fame

Instant Success

If it’s not instant, it’s not worth it

Our desire for what we want now can keep us from what we need later.

Equity - Investment into something that you can withdraw from when needed

Relational Equity - Investing relationally into others for your mutual benefit

Equity requires focus and consistency

You can’t wait until you need it to build it.

#1 - See relationships as investments for your future

Romans 12:9-21

9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good.10 Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Outdo one another in showing honor.

#2 - You choose your attitude

12 Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer.13 Share with the saints in their needs; pursue hospitality.14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud; instead, associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own estimation. 

#3 - Give a little, gain a lot

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Give careful thought to do what is honorable in everyone’s eyes.18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 20 But If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. 21 Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.

Hebrews 10:24-25

24 And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds. 25 Don’t stop meeting together with other believers, which some people have gotten into the habit of doing. Instead, encourage each other, especially as you see the day drawing near.
