Proverbs 18: We Need Community

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgement. (vs 1). How many times have you (or I) had an inner dialogue and ran away with it? Let me ask this another way. How many times have you, or I, had an inner dialogue and thought to yourself that you have conversed with someone thoroughly about a topic and hashed it out and sought counsel? Only to be perplexed when it didn't work out and suddenly realize that the only one you sought counsel from was yourself! That inner dialog is on sided! We cannot trust ourselves! God gives us community for a reason and it is a good thing! We need each other. We need each other for so many reasons. One, so we don't go insane. Two, for the wise counsel I spoke of a second ago. Three, stress relief. Four, remember Wilson? Five, our souls were made for community. God said in Genesis that it was not good for man to be alone and then he literally took a rib from him and make him a helper. Guys. We NEED each other. Do you have someone? Do you need someone? If you have no one, please reach out. Don't be alone. I will talk with you. Everyone needs someone. Find someone. But please know this, the Bible tells us to go one step further and find WISE counsel. There are whole chapters about not taking up with fools. Be discerning about who you are aligning yourself with. Watch those around you and align yourself with others who have attained the values and strengths you would like to have. Do NOT settle. Look for Godly character. I will pray for you today, I will pray for you every day. We need community and I welcome your community.
