A Disconnected Life
 
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. - Hebrews 13:16
 
I don’t have any problems relating to people. Really. It’s true. I don’t ever get irritated or upset with anyone: as long as I’m alone. It’s amazing just how easy life is when I’m alone and isolated. The worst in me can lie dormant for years as long as there’s no one around to awaken the sleeping giants inside of me.  
 
It may be true that a life of isolation is easier, but it’s also emptier.  When you don’t have to face who you really are, you grow comfort¬able and stop developing into what God wants for you.  
 
Are you going to take your place alongside the millions of others who’ve decided to abandon life by disconnecting? You may think this is the way life’s meant to be. But it’s not. Life is about relation¬ship, relationship with God and with one another.
 
“Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.” - Ben Franklin (1706-1790)
