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.
