This episode is part three of our "Real Relationships" series. Lead Pastor, Jeremy Flanagan, will be speaking on family relationships. He will explore how to have rich and fulfilling relationships with the people that live in your own home. 

Bottom Line: If the Lord is truly going to be God over all we know, then we need to work hard at following His design for relationships in the family. It is a struggle to keep true cooperation and dedication in a marriage relationship. It is equally important to maintain a Godly model of a vertical relationship between parents & children.

Next Steps:

- If married, work to understand what negative direction you and your partner tend to default to when cooperation isn’t found. Push to keep the relationship as mutually submissive, not authoritarian or emotionally distant.

- As parents, are you maintaining a healthy vertical relationship with your children? Be honest about how mistakes now can damage their character development & view of authority (including God).
