John [the Apostle] essentially says that if you want to know the true quantity of your relationship with God, don't look at your theological knowledge, biblical literacy, church involvement, etc. (although all these are very important). Instead, you should look at the quality of the relationships you have with those whom you live closest to. It is impossible truly to love God and not live lovingly with the people God has placed you near.
Broken-Down House, Paul David Tripp, p. 210.
