Ever notice that the vertical piece of the cross is longer than horizontal piece? I did not think of this until one recent Sunday the worship leader spoke about horizontal and vertical relationships. Our vertical relationship with God needs to be the primary relationship in our life as opposed to the horizontal one with people.
So when you see the cross next time, remember that the vertical arm is longer because it points to our primary focus in life. If our vertical relationship is in order, then our horizontal relationships should be good also.
