Here is a question i read last week and has been on my mind, "Can we have a right relationship with God in exclusion of others?"
I remember as a child growing up on a farm, i would often climb up a tree far from where anyone would be, up so high i knew the branches would barely support my weight, it was amazing how different it seemed, even the wind sounded different somehow. I've always thought i would be better off where no other people lived. In the last 4 years or so, God has really put it in my heart to reach out to other people, only problem is the judgement i feel and hear, i can't seem to meet expectations people put on me.
So it seems in my mind, that wanting to separate myself from the hurt (because people hurt people), would be a reflection of my relationship with God, and of course that is not a good reflection.
