The Desire to Connect

In our modern era there still is the desire to connect with other human beings. We seek it in a variety of ways - through email, cell phones, texting, instant messages, blogs, Facebook, etc. Through these different technology wonders we learn snippets about different people.

God built in us the desire for fellowship. In the Garden of Eden God said that it wasn't good for man to be alone, so He created Eve. Even though our lives have become incredibly busy we still have that desire for face to face communication.

I can't help but wonder if God has built that desire for fellowship in birds as well. As I write this a young juvenile cardinal is eating seed on my deck. While he is eating, he is also conversing with a partner somewhere in our maple tree.

When was the last time that you sat down with other believers and fellowshiped together, other than a church service? What can you do today to change that?

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:25
