No Man Is an Island

Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do good deeds.

You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing. But you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the Day coming.

Hebrews 10:24-25 (ICB)


God created us to be social beings who flourish in fellowship with others.

Consistent and purposeful interaction will enrich your spirit, bring clarity to your mind, and provide support during transition periods.

Even during the on-again, off-again lockdown, and social-distancing, you can use phone calls, video chats, and text messaging to substitute (in-person) human interaction.

So what’s really important to you?

“When you are in the final days of your life, what will you want?…Will you hug that college degree in the walnut frame? Will you ask to be carried to the garage so you can sit in your car? Will you find comfort in rereading your financial statement? Of course not. What will matter then will be people. If relationships will matter most, then, shouldn’t they matter most now? —Max Lucado

∙ Will you prioritize people over possessions?
∙ Are your relationships built to last?
∙ Do you help and encourage your friends to be better?
∙ Can they trust you to support them without judgment?

Only you can answer those questions, but if you need to vent or expand this discussion, please reply to this email or leave a comment on the site.
