9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help.
3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.
The past two years have forced us all to rethink what we are doing in this world. Part of the rethink is dealing with isolation. How do we connect with others and who needs that connection? We realized that we all need the social interaction that has been taken away.
While our pastoral care has been exemplary during these tough times, each individual is involved with the care process. Through Bible verses such as Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 and Philippians:3-4, God gives us some thoughts on how we can view our relationships with others and lead us toward the One Body in the church family.
Having someone there to help us when we fall has been so important in my family and we see this in our congregation. Conversations can get us on the right track and keep us headed that way. Turning to God is a first step in our quest for finding the right path that puts others first in our thoughts and teaching us the value of love in our lives, making us all One Body in Christ.
