In the earliest days of Jesus' journey, we can find Him building community. One of the aspects of this community I love the most is that He chose some very unlikely people to be in His inner circle: a couple of fishermen, a tax collector, and even a doctor. They were a pretty eclectic group of people to hang out with. While Jesus seemed cautious about the people He chose to walk the closest to — He also didn't allow their differences to separate the possibility of relationship.
Community. It is a beautiful thing.
It is the thing that says…
“You’re welcome here.”
Community means many things.
Among them, things like understanding…camaraderie…acceptance…support. I humbly suggest we all live with those needs.
I admit, I haven’t always embraced the idea of community. As a
solo-type girl, I used to believe I was better off by myself. But I
have come to understand that sometimes people are stronger when they
walk in tandem with another.
To give perspective. To offer hope. To simply, do life.
