There are many times that society seems to push us toward being competitive. There are rewards for being "right" or for getting our own ways. These actions can lead us to being divided and separating ourselves. There is a different way, though. As Isaac Newton once said, "We build too many walls and not enough bridges."
Instead of building walls to protect ourselves or to prove our own "greatness," we need to look for ways to come together. When we turn to God, we can find a unifying force. We can encourage each other to seek Him, to follow His ways, and to build each other up. We can take the love that He has shown us and share it as we build bridges that connect us instead of walls that divide us!
Turn to God and allow His love to help you build bridges instead of walls!
Thank You for the love that You share and its ability to build bridges. Help me to use Your love to connect with others and to connect them with You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
