Spiritual Preparation

Please respond to the questions below on the devotional discussion board:

“Jesus said … Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like unto it,Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Mathew 22:37-39).  In a similar way, He said: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you” (John 13:34).  These great commandments have to do with strengthening our divine relationships with Deity and others.  In preparation for my message on June 4, please share the following:

What do you do to strengthen your relationship with others?
