Relationships: The Foundation
There is no relationship that we need more than the one we develop with God. It serves as the foundation for the relationships we have with other people. How do we develop a deeper relationship with God? How do we as parents help our children to develop their relationship with God?
Although we are called to build our relationship with God through prayer, study His word, partake in the sacraments, and worship, we can rest assured that our efforts aren’t the determining factor in our eternal destiny. Through the work Jesus did for us on the cross, we can rest assured that God has laid the foundation for us to be Heaven-bound.
