Sometimes solitude is necessary for a season of rest and renewal.
For embracing the quiet places where God leads us into communion with him.
Jesus did that when he was here.
He frequently went off on his own to spend time with the Father.
But he always returned to continue building relationships with others.
To offer love, encouragement, and healing to those in need.
Although Jesus didn’t need other people in the same way that we do, his model for balancing solitude with God and communion with others is a good one to follow.
God knows that we need each other.
That’s why he encourages us to embrace relationship and community as an important part of the work he wants to do in our lives.
And the work he wants to do through us in the lives of others.
