Stick to the Bear-necessities

Just the Bear-necessitiesTherefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.   -2 Corinthians 5:17

A happy life includes healthy relationships.  Christ came so that we could have a new relationship with Him.  We are called to build good relationships with others.  We truly do need each other to survive and thrive.  Jesus said that, next to loving God, loving one another was more important than all the other laws and words of the prophets in scripture.  Our lives are becoming more and more separated –  isolated behind physical walls, geographic expanses, and virtual worlds.  Reach out, touch someone, and let others touch you.
