The Roseto effect

Good friendships extended our lives 

Asked to name the most exotic thing in the universe, most of us would mention either the very large black holes or the very small particles like quarks. But the most incredible structure in the entire universe may be what is sitting behind our eyeballs. Inside our heads is the most complex and sophisticated device in the universe. – Greg Peterson

We are hard-wired for relationships

Gen. 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness

We were created WE’S not ME’S

Without attention our relationships decay

Giving attention (actively push our distractions)

Phil. 2:3-4 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but

take an interest in others, too.

James 1:19 Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

Build up through specific Encouragement

Feed our friendships

Sing (explain worship)  and look over
