MEMORY VERSE: But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. And he declared to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. So he was with them at Jerusalem, coming in and going out (Acts 9:27-28) NKJV.
God is expecting all believers in Christ to embark on relationship that will transform others for good, both physically and spiritually. People should not have contact with you and regret meeting you. Rather, people should be thanking God for giving them opportunity for meeting you and they must still be eager to meet you the more, that is when you have positive impact on their lives just as Barnabas had on Paul and John Mark. Be another Barnabas in your church.
ATTITUDES FOSTERING INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE CHURCH

Lesson Scriptures: Rom. 12:9-13; Eph. 5:21; Jam. 2:1-7
Memory Verse: Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion (Rom. 12:16) NKJV
Relationship between brethren in a church should be cordial and beneficial to all members of the congregation. This can only be if every member takes pain to live according to God’s commands. When a member of the congregation refuses to follow God’s prescriptions, the relationship within the members suffers. When the relationship suffers, the members also suffer rather than enjoy the benefits of cordial relationship.
