God designed us for community. Isolation robs us of our greatest level of usefulness. We need each other. (Tim Sprankle, pastor)
The recent, long-lasting pandemic lockdown has created isolation and a deep sense of loss, resulting in discouragement and depression. An as Sprankle points out, the loneliness and confinement have brought with them the loss of a sense of usefulness. How can we be of help to others when we can’t even move outside our house? Creative use of time with phones, the Internet, and social media will help relieve that sense of isolation.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. . . Encourage each other and build each other up. (Ecclesiastes 4:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:11)
