Life’s journey and its adventures are never meant to be undertaken alone. The moment of our conception makes us connected with our mothers. Our birth brings us into bonds with our family and friends. Our study and work expands our social horizon, and now new social platforms see our being connected in many different ways with various people. Despite the presence of so many people in our lives, it is important to discern our chosen companions who will help us to grow in faith, hope and love. Paul “planted, Apollos watered, but God caused the growth” (1. Cor. 3:6). We must love all people. But the nature of our planting and watering for God’s kingdom demands selectivity and sensitivity. Lord Jesus, as You selected your chosen Apostles to learn from You and collaborate with each other, lead us to those with whom we can work, love and advance Your glory. Amen.
