BRIDGES OR FENCES

 
Our pastor had a fabulous message yesterday. It was about bridges and fences.
He reminded us of friendships that may have ended due to a misunderstanding. And how important it is to build bridges to recreate that relationship.
I know in my own life there have been times when someone has hurt my feelings. And in my "human-ness" (is that a word), it is easier to build a fence than a bridge to "reconnect" with each other.
It is often easier to protect ourselves behind a fence, rather than expose our hearts by offering a bridge.
I wonder how many times though when we attempt to build a bridge and learn that person on the other side has erected a very high, impenetrable fence.
What to do now?
That's when you need to hand your hammer and nails over to the Carpenter. You know the One.
Proverbs 6:3 So do this, my son, and deliver yourself; For you have come into the hand of your friend: Go and humble yourself; Plead with your friend.
