Don’t go through life alone. Culture teaches you to be tough and to pretend to have it all together, but I did not design you that way. Lock arms with others. Find your teammates. You are part of a body, and each body part matters. Your leg couldn’t survive on its own, nor could your head. So stop pretending like you don’t need people in your life. You do, and they need you.

Do you have a band of warriors you can count on? Are there men or women you could call any time of day and know they would respond without hesitation? Who are those who know your secrets? Who do you talk to when you are overwhelmed by temptation? Find a few people you can trust, and stack hands that you will follow me together and help one another do the same. I am with you always, but I made you part of a family. Enjoy the blessing of friends and family.

Take time today to serve those you love and care about in numerous small ways. Do the little things that might go unnoticed but are always appreciated.
