Behavioural scientists say humans are by nature social creatures. We connect with other humans emotionally and we seek out physical connections that appeal to us emotionally.
As it is true in behavioural science, so is it true in our lives as spiritual beings too. In actual fact, i believe this desire for connection originates from our spirit because Man is spirit first.
We cannot do life alone. we are not wired that way. In our walk with God, we will sometimes need a hand to hold as we walk through some difficult learning moments, we will need the support of a community, and the companionship and fellowship of friends and brethren to share joys with.
Community keeps us from becoming a self-absorbed island. community can keep us accountable. community keeps us balanced.
God always establishes us in a community so that we can receive his love through the channels of people he surrounds us with. It could be your church family, circle of friends, prayer group or mentors; take a careful look around you; you’ll find them.
Now, i’m not saying things will be rosy dovy all the time with some people in your community; because we are human, friction will happen but you will learn through grace and forgiveness and you will grow.
You are not created to go through life all on your own. God has given you a support system. look carefully around you; chances are you already know who they are. CONNECT!
