Remember the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
Emulate God’s perfect love by giving of yourself without expecting anything in return. The blessing of being able to love another is all you need.
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.
