God honored us by sending his son into a human family. Our families serve as our first face-to-face group and the primary place we learn how to relate to others. We discern the necessity of interdependence and sharing. I love to witness the delight of children as they find themselves in each other's company; their interaction teaches us about the beauty of God's plan for togetherness. Worship, study, recreation, music and countless other events bring us together to give and receive. "So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another" (Romans 14:19).
