A Few Words On Islands

13 Aug


Dear Dave,

You where raised to be strong, confident, and self-sufficient… but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need other people around.

Stop digging that alligator-filled moat. Put down the bricks and mortar.

You think you’re building a castle, but it’s an Alcatraz.

John Donne said it best,

No man is an island, Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main.

It will be hard, but community will keep you accountable, encouraged, and growing.

Don’t take my word for it: Give Hebrews 10:24-25 a read (and underline it too)!
