20 Bible Verses About Social Interaction
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about social interaction. One of the problems most people encounter especially believers is a lack of social interaction. The world keeps evolving around us and we are left back in the swing of the moment because we have isolated ourselves from the rest of the world. Get this fact today, God never created us so for us to live an isolated life. If God had created us to be alone, He would have given us all the things that we need for life without putting any in the hands of another person. But we can’t get everything we need to survive, that’s why there must be Social Interaction.
Through social interaction, we can communicate with others, learn from them, teach them our ways too and get the things we need for our survival. Even Christ interacted with people. Through social interaction, we can win souls for Christ Jesus. Apostle Peter was not a believer when Christ boarded his boat. If Christ had refrained from using his boat only because Peter was not a Christian at that time, Peter would not have become what he become. There is a need for social interaction and it must not be between Christians alone.
Let us shun the hypocrisy. We can’t do exploit living in isolation. We come in contact with those we call unbelievers daily. We enter their bus, we eat from their restaurant, some of us live in their houses as tenants, and so on. Social interaction must continue. The scripture said in the book of Isaiah 61:6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. How do you intend to eat the riches of the gentiles if you continue to isolate yourself? As Priests of the Lord that you have been called, your duty is not directed at the believers only. Even the unbelievers need your intercession better.
We will highlight 20 bible verses about social interaction to help us to better understand its importance.
