I suppose we can either build:
fences or bridges,
walls or doors,
locks or stairs.
There is nothing wrong with some solitude and quiet time but when we isolate our decision making and interaction as we ‘know it all’, we are setting ourselves up for a great fall.
True is the saying:
and this quote is appropriate:
Here is the poem that quote came from:
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
God created us for fellowship with Him and each other. Thus the two great commandments (Love Him, Love others).
