SELF-MADE FORTRESSES NOT ONLY
KEEP LOVE FROM GOING OUT, THEY
KEEP LOVE FROM COMING IN. WE RISK
BECOMING CAPTIVES THERE.
Faithful, loving Lord, according to Your Word, two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! (Eccles. 4:9-10, 12).
Help me to form healthy relationships and find support in those who encourage me to get back on my feet and walk with You when I fall. Between You, me when I’m willing, and a good friend to hold me accountable, a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
You warn us, “He who separates himself seeks his own desire; He quarrels against all sound wisdom” (Prov. 18:1).
Help me to be very careful not to isolate myself.
