Do you have to be an expert to give advice …?

Relationships often prove difficult to navigate. Certain people choose a way of life in which certain relationships are not part of their journey. Marriage is not something everyone chooses. Violent homes don’t choose everyone. So, when someone is asked what to do in these instances we often defer to those who have authority or experience on the subject. Here are some words from Bruderhof’s Daily Dig for today that point up some advice is universal to all relationships and thank goodness someone champions a good way.

Three Words
Mother Teresa

People ask me what advice I have for a married couple struggling in their relationship. I always answer: pray and forgive. And to young people from violent homes, I say: pray and forgive. And again, even to the single mother with no family support: pray and forgive.
