We’ve all heard it said that “no man is an island”—and it’s true. We may at times feel isolated in this busy, distracted world, but we’re meant to be interdependent and share life with others. The Trinity itself reflects the importance of relationships. Those closest to us offer some of the best opportunities for practicing love, sacrifice, and forgiveness. The light of Christ shines in you because of His presence, and that’s not just a saying—it’s a biblical fact. As you read through these pages, let Him show you how to keep the light “on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light” (Luke 11:33). You’re not the only one who’ll benefit. You can support the growth of others in, or toward, Jesus, and that’s a priceless gift.
