Fabric

Have you ever thought about how much you are part of the fabric of life? The fact is, you are part of a fabric that is larger than yourself. Here are five quick thoughts as it relates to you being fabric:

1. You weren’t made to do life by yourself. You need others weaved around you.
2. You are stronger the more you weave others into the fabric of your life. Don’t isolate yourself. An old African proverb says, “If you want to go fast, run alone. If you want to go far, take people with you.”
3. Variety in the colors of those who surround you are what makes your life more beautiful. If all the people in your life look like you, you may want to broaden the “palate” of your fabric.
4. If you have stains, marks, and blemishes in your life, it doesn’t mean you are no longer a good person or have lost your usefulness. The fact is, your greatest hurts can become your greatest service to help others woven around you.
5. There may be certain textures that “rub you the wrong way” but it may be those difficult people that make you better. Don’t begrudge those folks. They may make you better in ways that comfort could never bring.

So in summary, there is much good to be found in the fabric of our lives.
