I’ve not seen it actually happen, but it occurs a lot on TV dramas. Someone asks a question and the other person says ‘walk with me’. They then walk down a hall or along a path to discuss whatever the topic is.
The implication, this is something we need to work on this together.
I ran across a quote that reminded me God doesn’t want us walking alone.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 read ” Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
God did not intend us to walk alone. He looked at Adam and said “It is not good for man to be alone” and created Eve. So they walk together.
With technology today, many people spend more time with their computer screens than interacting one-on-one with the people around them.
For myself, when I work, I prefer an office by myself, with the door closed. I get a lot done. Work is more productive and goes much faster.
But there is more to the job than that. When I work alongside someone with a goal in mind we get much further in the process.
When I go for a walk the same thing happens. I can go it alone at a pace I desire and get there faster. But when I walk with a friend, we have conversations, we laugh, we share, and can keep on going.
I was reminded today “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Jesus said this often to his disciples. He would walk with the 12, and other times he would take 3 and say ‘walk with me’.
Alone time is good, and everyone needs that. Remember to include someone else in your walk. Not just through your keyboard. Someone you can look in the eye and say “walk with me”.
Who do you walk with?
