Having coffee with a friend. Meeting with a Bible study group. Catching up with old friends. Family time spent together. Serving in the community.
What ever you are doing to connect with others, is important. God created us to commune with others.
Hebrews 10:25 says, And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Jesus wanted a community and gathered the disciples together to walk with him and to share in the time He had on earth. We need these same kind of people. People that will encourage, check in and selflessly be there for us. People who care so deeply they are willing to come to us in love and let us know when we need to make changes.
We can seek guidance in these relationships from the Bible by seeing how true, honest and pure Jesus was with those close to him. We all have peaks and valleys and to have people in your life to share those things with and get advice and guidance from is precious.
God is with us at all times and leads us in ways no one else can but He also bring those to us who can help carry us in through things in this life.
Colossians 3:16 reads, Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.
Let's bring encouragement and love to those around us. Reach out and let them know they are seen and heard. Show them what a Godly relationship is like.
