Devotion

Making Connections
(Philippians 2:3-4) Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

“You can’t fake this music. You might be a great singer or a great musician but, in the need, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s how you connect to the songs and the to the history behind them.” Jamesetta Hawkins aka Etta James 1938-2012 (American singer of blues, R&B, soul, rock and roll, jazz, and gospel)

There is truly a purpose to everything that happens in your life. When you consider the vastness of life in general and the many lives of people all over the world, it makes sense. Some of our experiences simply initiate something else that is set to happen at its appointed place and time. That could be next week at your home or office, or twenty years from now in a downtown park in Manhattan. We don’t and we won’t know all the reasons some things happen. But the connections it makes with people is what’s important. The people in our experiences are treasure troves of connections who embody the progression of family and relationships beyond our bloodlines. Those connections keep people from remaining strangers to each other. They allow us the privilege to value and respect each other’s existence. Truth be told, we’re all in this world and in this life together for God’s Kingdom purpose. Therefore, God intends for us to connect.
