Why It's Important To Connect With A Community
It's life-giving and crucial for overcoming challenges and fulfilling your potential
When I was growing up, if I did something wrong five blocks from where I lived,
My parents knew about it before I got home!
It was a time when porches were in the front of houses rather than in the backyard.
There was the little old lady who sat on her porch and knew everything that went on in the neighborhood.
It was a community that raised and looked after me.
Remember when there were only 3-5 channels to watch,
With only one TV you had in the home?
My family would sit together and negotiate which program we’d watch…
That doesn't happen anymore...
We've become a culture of fragmented alliances.
When sitting alone in a room with over 50 channels to choose from…
We complain in frustration,
“There’s nothing on!”
It's no wonder why we feel so isolated.
Having a solid support system of people who care about you,
Is a matter of life and death...
For your spirit in rising to your full potential.
To become the best version of who you are,
There must be people who surround, support, and encourage you.
And never give up on you, no matter what the circumstances are.
To overcome the inevitable challenges that show up,
You’ll need a fellowship that will sustain and believe in you…
Until you have confidence in yourself.
It’s a focus on the few who care for the one who needs help.
It’s the life-giving power of connection who are loyal to one another.
Do you have a village that would run to your care if you needed it?
If you don’t, deepen your relationships with others.
Shift your interactions from trivial acquaintances to meaningful and committed friendships.
Am I willing to invest my life in a community of like-minded values and dedication?
Trust me, the day will come when you’ll reflect on your life and be grateful you did.
