When we live in community we find that our lives are enriched as we care deeply for other people. We are able to step into areas of need and give them the opportunity to do the same for us. These friendships enrich our lives as we grow in the depth of our relationship and are able to move past superficial communication to something more meaningful. Our prayers move past the simple thought of blessing someone to understanding the specific need and revelation they need to mature. These relationships are not easy to develop and can be painful to maintain during tumultuous times. The sweet unity we find in sticking together and making this level of investment will affirm God's desires for us to grow together.
