In Your genius, we were designed to live together in the community. You said, “It’s not good for man to be alone…” and You added a woman beside him for companionship.
The need each of us has to be loved and accepted…to fellowship together…to develop families and friends is designed in us. Our mental health and the health of our communities flourish when we establish and maintain caring bonding relationships with one another.
In America, Silicon Valley and social media have broken down our sense of shared humanity and created empty, impersonal, artificial relationships which cannot be substituted for the reality of family and real friends.
Father, please help America rediscover and value real personal relationships and rebuild the true community. May I learn to demonstrate the healing power of loving one another without condition.
Scripture: “Most important of all, you must sincerely love each other, because love wipes away many sins.” I Peter 4:8
