I am absolutely THRILLED to have my daughter as my very first guest poster!!  Please leave her an encouraging comment as this is her first blog post, too.

How should we, as Christians, get along with our siblings? We should treat others the way we want to be treated. Even though it can be tricky to get along with your brothers and sisters, we must love as Christ loved us (see John 15:12).

When we get along with our siblings, we feel content and at peace. I can imagine when we have fun with our siblings, God feels pleased with us, since He told us to love others. I want to have a close relationship with my siblings because they will always be in my life. Friendship with our siblings shows we are followers of Christ. Considering and demonstrating the Fruits of the Spirit not only help keep the relationship solid, but in addition, sets an example for others.

Lately my brother, sister, and I have been going to a couple different grocery stores in town a few blocks away to go buy a slushie or some candy. I find that grows our sibling bond, just walking to the store together, chatting with laughter. I know this will become a wonderful past time for us.

My brother says that when we share our things, it helps our bond strengthen. Sharing can also show how you are putting others above yourself. When my brother and sister share something with me, even if it is something small, I feel honoured.

Holding a friendship bond between our brothers and sisters makes the relationship easier to keep. Proverbs 17:17 says “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity”. Therefore, a brother should be there for us in times of trouble, and we should do the same.
