Item description for Relationships: A Bridge or a Burden? by George M. Matthews...
Overview The knowledge necessary to master relationships is yours! Everything that has or will be accomplished occurred through the successful conveyance and power of relationships. A relationship whether business, family, or interpersonal, is defined as the state or fact of being associated or connected; allied by kinship, marriage, common origin, or goals. As this definition implies, being able to assess the capability, compatibility, and sincerity of others is critical to the accomplishment of set goals. "No man is an island, entire of itself; everyman is a piece of the continent, a part of the main,..." as the old proverb further explains, causes us to see the ultimate need for deciding upon and choosing the significant others to fill the various forums of our lives (John Donne, 1572-1631)In this book, author George M. Matthews, II explains through insightful study of the scriptures: Why Satan attacks people who are in relationship with you, understanding how your next accomplishment depends on who you know, God's purpose for designing relationships, the benefit of God-ordained relationships, the key to producing a harmonious flow in relationships, how and when to let go of destructive relationships. Discover the ability to succeed by taking control and becoming a better steward of the process of allowing the entrance of others into every area of your life. "For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself..." (Romans 14:7).

A Very Useful Tool for Relationships Jul 8, 2004
This book is a very useful tool in being able to define relationships and the various types that exist. Pastor Matthews explicitly articulates the importance of engaging in relationships with individuals that will enhance you and not those who suffer from the "parasite syndrome" in sucking everything out of you for what they can get. The individual must set standards in his or her own life to develop a personal criteria in allowing others to establish a relationship with them. Pastor Matthews has done a great job writing and I highly recommend this book to clergy and laity alike whether single or married as a possible text book for a Marriage or Singles Conference.
Curious about George? May 14, 2003
The "fireside chat" style of presentation makes Relationships: A Bridge or a Burden an easy and interesting read. Though some of the author's opinions are slightly controversial, the book offers sound scriptural reference to support a common sense approach to decision making in relationships. Written from a Christian perspective, the commentary predictably addresses male/female relationships, but creates a sense of balance by exploring other types. I recommend this book for those seeking an objective second opinion or a directed focus in their pursuit of a satisfying relationship.
