Why we need friends---

Why do we need each other? What do you think?  There are many answers for that question, but the one that means the most to you depends on you.  Maybe we need each other to help us figure out difficult problems that we have a hard time seeing clearly on our own.  Maybe we need to love and to be loved and friends are a way to fulfill that need.  Maybe relationships are a key reason we are alive and one of the few things we can take with us when we leave this life.

What makes our life difficult if we feel alone?  I volunteered at an orphanage in another country in college.  One of our jobs was to hold a baby that was wasting away because it was not getting the love and attention she needed to thrive.  As we held her and played with her she began to grow and respond to us.  How wonderful!  We are like that too.  We can become depressed or even ill if we are lonely or isolated.  Our immune system is suppressed leaving us more prone to disease and problems. Let's reach out and love each other.  We need it! 

  • John 13:34

    34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

    God knows what he is talking about.  Share the love!
