In today’s episode on Coffee With Chrystal, Chrystal Evans Hurst teaches on the topic of “Cultivating Community”.
She teaches that it is important that you cultivate community if you do not have one . However, you need to do some real work to create your own community. . You are a human being which means that you are created to be with other people. It is so important that God understood the importance of community and that is one of the reason he made us. Today, we enjoy the community of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
We are designed to live in community. There are things that will happen in your life only because you develop and cultivate a circle of friends. Whether the connections you build are for a season or for a lifetime, they matter. Connection matters. Yes, relationships are hard. Yes, living in community is challenging. And yes, being vulnerable is not always fun. Being connected to others is hard work, but the cost of no connectivity is too high for you to pay.
Chrystal tell us that if you decide to use your bad experience in your past relationships to ostracize yourself, then yo are missing out on life’s greatest gift. If we want a community then we need to be intentional about connecting with people. It is when you connect with people that people will connect with you.
She added that connectivity is a scientific and spiritual necessity to living a happy long life. Connectivity is all about the people in your inner circle. The people who know your phone number and know when to come and get you when they haven’t seen you in a while.
According to Stanford Social Study, lack of social connection is a greater detriment to your health than most of the known diseases like obesity.
Good relationship is a big part of happiness. If you do not have your people, it’s okay. All you have to do is to be intentional about creating your circle. Do not wait for the circle to come to you, because it may be that will draw the circle to yourself.
This is a message that you will enjoy.
