Daily Bible Reading for Thursday, February 22nd:

Proverbs 14:10 – Fellowship Needed

Godly People will find favor from God and man

10 No one else can know your sadness,
and strangers cannot share your joy.
– Proverbs 14:10 NCV

Even between the best of friends, there is never a perfect understanding of the sadness or joy one may have. We can get close: marriage, best friends, clubs, supports groups – some are better, but none perfect. We just cannot get that close to another person’s heart.

We have been given two things that give us that kind of access to God’s heart:

  1. God made his Spirit available so that we can know Him (1 Corinthians 2:11-13).
  2. We have fellowship in Christ’s body (1 Corinthians 12:13) when we have carried out his instructions (Acts 2:38).

Do you take advantage of these things so that you are not a stranger to God?
