Bonds between brethren

“For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help.”
Ecclesiastes 4:10

2 - Reflect
When our routines are complex or do not let us rest for a minute it is hard to stay alert and attentive to the needs of others. Everyone focuses on their own problems and dilemmas and lose attention for their brethren. We no longer see what happens to them, and we are focused only on ourselves. But we must remember something important for living in communion: God the Father wanted us to be brethren and to live together in faith. Together is the only way we can live under the Lord's lessons in order to help each other when we are lost. The path from there will be more enjoyable if we truly surrender ourselves to the divine grace of Our Heavenly Father.



It is imperative that we do not forget that every time we feel disconnected from others we should actively look for paths that bring us closer. God the Father will always be the intermediary and guide for relating as brethren. Returning to those practices that bring us together again, that renew our commitment to our neighbors is also a way to be closer to God. To do this, praying daily will give us a better perspective on the issues to which we have to pay more attention and give more importance.
