This pic, from ‘Try The World’ on my FB timeline grabbed my attention. So often I see cabins, tree houses, campsites of places to escape. It is a dream of so many to find isolation and seclusion.
But in reality, I don’t think seclusion is the answer. We were not made for being alone. It’s not good for us. Oh, I get we need times of refreshing, sabbaticals to refuel and refresh, and those moments of retreat to reflect … but we were built for relationships.
We need each other. We need to engage and empower each other.
AS Christians, we are to be lights not hidden. Shining in such a way that points others to Jesus. That’s pretty hard to do from an isolated getaway in the middle of a Nordic river.
So today, tell people around you how you appreciate their presence. Show gratitude for each other.
Enjoy the art of pictures like this …
But appreciate the friendships that are right where you are.
