Five Minute Friday ~ Connection
I’ve found that connection must start with the Creator. If I fail to recognize that not making that connection a priority then any other connection I make is at great risk of failing or hurting.
Connection is an essential part of life. Without connection we would find ourselves feeling isolated and lonely. With every breath we connect in one way or another.
Whether our connection is with friends, family, strangers, or animals, we must be mindful of the type of connection we make. As well as the type of fragrance we leave once that connection is complete.
When people walk away from a time of connecting with us, do they walk around feeling challenged to better themselves for God? Refreshed? Brought down? Discouraged? Encouraged? Loved? Like an inconvenience? Do our interactions with others bring them up or tear them down?
I think it’s essential to keep in mind the type of connection we want to be and take steps to make it happen. For me, being a consistent positive interaction must begin by connecting with the One who teaches love like no human ever can.
