Our life is meant to sit in the context of community. We were made for it. God created us in His image and He is community~ the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. God created us from relationship for relationship. When you step into community, it isn’t always easy. It can be messy. It can be challenging. And community is usually slow. But it is worth it!
I want to share with you 7 values that come from community:
In each of these 7 areas, God has given you a certain amount: You have a measure of courage, strength, grace, wisdom, safety, perspective and growth. But you are not meant to live with the best you have in each of these areas, but with the best that comes from community in these areas. Think about gathering with 8 people who have different core values, ways to communicate, upbringing, life experiences, work experiences, encounters with God, and a journey of faith. What a gift to gather and connect! Exponential multiplication comes when you share what you have with others and they share with you and along the journey of growing in community, you will grow in all those values and have more to pour out onto others.
If you are not already connected in community, my challenge to you is: Go find your people!
