No man is an Island
“Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.” Proverbs 18:1 (ESV)
When we isolate ourselves from our support system of family/friends, we are really being selfish. If we are to become al that God wants us to be, we must trust a friend with our heart and take guidance from them at times.
No man (or woman) is an island! We were created for communion with our Creator as well as other created beings. We need the wisdom of those who’ve gone before us as well as the boldness of those who challenge our thinking to help us become better. What would happen if we didn’t ever take instruction and advice from a friend who has my best interest at heart?
May we not retreat unto ourselves, but allow our own “fellowship of the heart” to encourage us to be a better person.
WE NEED ONE ANOTHER!
