Connecting is Caring

Our church is doing an all-church study for the month of March called “Connect. Grow. Serve.” I feel compelled to share what we learned today–for the benefit of Miggz–and any of you out there who feel some kind of disconnect in their daily relationships.

Our world right now is a busy world engulfed in technology. Sometimes our best connections and relationships are made by, and through, technology. Unfortunately, though some of these connections are great…they also at times can feel empty…incomplete…superficial.

If you are in that place, I have one word for you. CARE.

You have to care enough to connect.

We are–and I’m culprit to this more than half the time–so engulfed in our own priorities, our own agendas, our own to-do lists, that we fail to connect with people.

Not just connect in a hi-hello sense. Not just connect in a “like” your Facebook post sense. Not just connect in re-Tweet sense, or repin in Pinterest sense, or respond to a text or email sense.

But really connect.

Connect in that relationship-forming, relationship-building, relationship-establishing sense.

Connecting to the people we encounter everyday. Whether they are family, friends, or co-workers. Whether they are complete strangers. Whether they are our own children.

Especially if they are our own children.

If you care enough to connect on a deeper level, you’ll be giving up your precious time and wanting to get out of your safe haven/bubble/comfort zone.

Not the easiest to do.

But if you really, really care…if you really, really want to establish/fix/develop/flourish that relationship, you will.

You should.

Connecting is caring.

Caring is connecting.

Will you connect with someone today?
