Some of us are finding the forced ‘stay home’ especially difficult. When there is no one around to share life with, to encourage us, to support us, or to work together, we struggle with being alone. Isolation is not part of God’s good plan for his people. Having pronounced everything to be good in Genesis 1, God declares in the following chapter that it is not good for man to be alone. We were made for companionship. Ecclesiastes recognises the blessings of relationship with others.
