One Advantage of Community

A question was asked in the men’s group I attend, and I was amazed at the wisdom of the answers provided. The group responded with penetrating questions, insightful comments, and biblical truth. 

Immediately this thought went through my head, “We are smarter than me.”

Sure, put an odd collection of people together, and bad things can happen, but usually, there is something positive. There is the scriptural teaching from the spiritually mature, the experience of the aged, and the lessons of multiple lifetimes available to guide us. 

Today, it is popular to think that faith is a personal matter best experienced privately. Nothing could be further from the truth. God puts us together with other believers for a multitude of reasons. One significant advantage of being in a community is the wisdom we have available by connecting to other people.
