Real Community

The ones who hear you’ve been displaced {kicked-to-the-curb, removed, dismissed, expelled, terminated, cut off, locked out, let go}, whether you deserved to be disinherited or not, and come outside the borders and stand there with you anyway.  Those are your people.

There won’t be as many as you thought.  But wow, you’ll finally understand the worth of the ones who stay.

friends who turned in to family

David left…and escaped to the cave…When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there. All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him… (1 Samuel 22.1-2)

They might not look like the most beautiful bunch at first, but I bet to David, coming out of that cave, they looked amazing.

Look around.  You are not alone.

One thought on “Real Community

  1. So true, Honey. Throughout the last 32 years of ministry we have seen God’s hand raise up people that we needed in our lives to lift our heads and hold up our arms and it was not always who we thought it might be. God told David in essence, “if you can pastor these people you can pastor anyone”. Good post. Xxoo
