Psalms 23:5 - You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. ____________________________________
It is possible for you to experience the joy of the Lord in the midst of mounting pressure. Even when enemies swarm about you, when accusations are made, when rejection is close at hand. ____________________________________
The Shepherd, your Comforter, is with you. He is the source of your satisfaction in the midst of the trials. He is the One who makes you lie down in green grass. He leads you beside quiet waters and restores your soul. ____________________________________
Relief to your soul comes in the overflow. The abundance of his comfort and the richness of his love is more precious than all the physical comforts of this world. ___________________________________

Psalms 113:4 - The Lord is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. __________________________________

Dealing with Rejection ______________________________________________________________

Isaiah 53:1-7 - Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. ________________________________________________________________ 
Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. _____________________________________________________________

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. _____________________________________________________________

Romans 8:15-17 - For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. _________________________________________________________

Jesus understands the pain of rejection in relationships. Use the words of Isaiah 53 above to describe the rejection that Jesus went through. ____________________________________________________________

Do you know the Spirit of sonship? You are accepted by your Father. ________________________________________________________________

Conflict in Relationships ____________________________________________________________________________

Matthew 18:15-20 - If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.  But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector. __________________________________________________________________ “I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. ____________________________________________________________ “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. _______________________________________________________________

What is Jesus' way of handling relational conflict? ________________________________________________________________

Understanding in Relationships __________________________________________________________________

Philippians 2:1-5 - If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.  Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.  Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. ________________________________________________________________________

1 Peter 1:22 - Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. ____________________________________________________________________

What sacrifices can you make to understand another person better today? ____________________________________________________________

Real understanding of another person is given through obedience to Jesus. _______________________________________________________

What is real love? ___________________________________________________________________
1 John 3:11-24 - This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous.  Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.  We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.  Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. _______________________________________________________  This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. _________________________________________________________

If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?  Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.  This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence  whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. __________________________________________________________  Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God  and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.  And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.  Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. __________________________________________________________

How can you show someone your love through action and truth today? ______________________________________________________

Look at Jesus' model of doing relationships. _________________________________________________

Romans 5:6-8 - You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ____________________________________________________________

Ephesians 5:1-2 - Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children  and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. ______________________________________________________

Describe Jesus' model of relating to others. ______________________________________________________

How will you relate to others today? _____________________________________________________
