Cultivating a Relationship

Gardening is easy, if it weren’t for the weeds! That’s kind of like relationships would be easier if they didn’t involve people and their emotions. We cannot have one without the

other. In Winning with People, John Maxwell’s Book about Relationships, we learn the Gardening Principle, which reminds us of the obvious, but often overlooked, ‘All relationships need cultivation.’

Men and women are different. Here are a few humorous pokes at our gender differences. Hope you see them as fun, but don’t tell my wife about these.

  • A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband; a man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

  • A woman has the last word in any argument; anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

  • There are two times when a man doesn’t understand a woman: before marriage and after.

Simple ways to cultivate a relationship: commitment, communicate, be a friend, create memories, grow together and spoil each other.

The question I must ask myself: Do I occasionally or continually cultivate my relationships?
