Relationship choices can be life or death. On a FamilyLife Blended podcast author John Trent shared the Hebrew word for “life” carries the idea of movement. Moving toward the other person gives them and your relationship life. The Hebrew word for death means “to depart, step away.” When we emotionally move away from someone we bring a little death to the relationship. It's easy to move toward someone emotionally when you feel connected, but doing so when you feel hurt is tough. Don't add death to the equation. Instead, choose life.
