Beyond Your Needs

Proverbs 27:10 ESV

Do not forsake your friend and your father's friend, and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity. Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother who is far away.

*A lot of times people only go to others, including so called friends, when they are in need. There is almost the concept of pulling someone out like a tissue, (only when u need them), using them, and then throwing them away after they have satisfied your need. People even throw others away if they are unable to meet your needs, despite how kind the person is to you...You may he throwing away a divine connection, and you don't even realize it. This is why it is important to learn to understand those that God places in your life, reach out to them other then when you need something, and ask the Father if and how to grow with the individual. It is better to establish a bond and be close to someone, then be distant from them until you feel like you need something and want to be bothered with them. Now, of course, everyone is not meant to be in your inner circle; however, all people were not meant for you to utilize only to satisfy your need either. Look beyond yourself to ask God who to connect and grow with, and who is the vessel that can further assist you. Remember, your help comes from God. Therefore, seek Him first in order to avoid being misguided or assisting in the mistreatment of others.
