The more we understand one another, the better equipped we are to touch each other’s lives to restore the soul.
Why because first of all God humans to be together, we can not survive alone, on this journey in this sinful world. We are creatures that want companionship, to be known, explored and touched. When we get to know people superficially it is not a deep relationship, we only know the surface stuff, the deeper stuff in a person soul, God shows us how to do Soul Care, through His wisdom, and gentleness. It is good to receive healthy soul care from others and necessary, because we will at times feel tired, weak and discouraged. We can not do this soul care journey alone.
We have to really know each other in order to be close enough to reach each other. A superficial relationship doesn’t allow for deep roots to grow to connect people. Deep connections allow you to say things that outside of a strong relationship would not be acceptable.
