“It is not good that man should be alone: and I will make him a help meet.” Gen. 2:18
Often times we associate this above scripture with marriage alone. No one can know the creature more than the creator. God who made man concluded by saying it is not good for man to be alone. Loneliness is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to a man. An old man told me before his death that loneliness is the problem of the aged, when they are deserted by children and everyone. In prison one of the extreme ways of punishing people or breaking their spirit is to keep them in solitary confinement also sick people feel better when they see people around them than when they are alone. Loneliness easily leads to depression and often mental related diseases. The people who commit suicide most of the times keep their problems to themselves, then depression and finally, suicide. Man is not made to be alone, you need me and I need you. no man is an island. A new baby needs people especially parents or adults to care for him or her when given birth to, same way, an old man/woman in their old age needs younger people to care for them. If the maker in his wisdom says, it is not good for man to be alone, truly man cannot be alone and survive or live well. We need to network with people, especially those of the household of faith. In times of trouble, we need people around us, but it starts even in good times.
Oh Lord, connect me to helpers of my destiny in Jesus mighty name.
