“The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
I do not like to eat lunch alone. If I must, I will get my food to go and find a place to eat with others instead of eating alone in a restaurant. While I enjoy watching a movie in silence, I will not go to a movie theater by myself. In addition, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, even if we are doing nothing. God designed us to for relationships. This does not mean we should not have alone time or that we must be in a romantic relationship. It simply means we need others in our lives. Being relational means finding healthy relationships among our friends, coworkers, church family, family, or significant other. We need people who can share our burdens, rejoice when we rejoice, mourn when we mourn, and offer forgiveness when we need it.
Who do you have in your life? Who need you in your life? How can you foster healthy relationships with those people?
