Proverbs 18:1 (NKJV) A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment.
You hear more in the days of our lives now from almost every corner: American culture is becoming increasingly marked by loneliness and isolation. In one way it’s understandable. There is a sense of safety and control in isolation and disconnection; but it’s a false sense of security. In fact, living lonely is anything but secure. It’s a dangerous lifestyle because it allows a person to overlook real life, real people, and all the benefits and rewards that go with growing relationships. Where are you in today’s message?
And probably more important, our character has little chance to grow when we live life in isolation from others. It allows our thinking to go unchallenged, and allows damaging issues we may struggle with to grow and thrive in the sterile soil isolation provides. I just felt compelled to connect with you today and share that there is a difference between being alone and isolating oneself from others!
Point to ponder- If you are feeling isolated, remember Jesus came in this season of Advent to touch your life in New and relational way.
