A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment.
Proverbs 18:1 NKJV
This seems to be one of the tricks of the enemy - to cause isolation between people. In relationships and community God works powerfully. In isolation the work of God is muted.
No wonder the culture today, and even the recent pandemic, has such a strong isolating element.
The enemy isolates. God joins.
Fight against tendencies to isolate from other people, especially believers. Join. Involve. Communicate. Relate. Help. Forgive. Love. These are activities of community. They can’t take place in isolation.
Jesus, Thank You for the gift of community and relationship. Make me a joiner, not an isolater. Amen.
