We as human-beings, created in a triune God’s image, are made for relationship. God the Father is in perfect union with the Son who is in perfect union with the Holy Spirit. We fulfill our DNA’s pull as we share our lives with others who can identify with us. Now, some of us need more sharing than others (ie. extro vs. introverts), but the basic premise remains the same: We were made to be in relationship with one another.
We need people, and even more important people need us. Yes, there are people in your life and my life that need our attention, our emotional investment, and our love. I have been hit between the eyes this week with two occurences that made me stop and realize how little time I make for other people. Why can’t I take an hour? Why don’t I make more room in my day for other people? Lots to think about from my end, maybe yours too?
