Celebrating interdependence

We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom. 2 Cor. 1:12a

Rather than embracing the autonomy and rugged individualism we often associate with American independence we are called to lives that are dependent on Christ and connected to others. To become one with Christ, members of one Body with His Church, and one flesh with a spouse, if married, we relinquish independence for interdependence. We trade getting our own way all the time by going it alone for depending on and submitting to God and others.

Lord, thank you for this  interdependent freedom I enjoy.
