John 6:66-67
66 After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. 67 So Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?”

You see it every four years, people gather in small towns and big cities to support the man or woman they think would best lead as President. Constituents, or people who support a common cause, come together, work side by side, and many times get to know another quite personally while they work together diligently to see their cause’s success. The hours, days, and weeks they spend in constant communication with one another develop a relationship that is deeper than surface level in the area of their common cause only. Many people end up hurt and feeling abandoned because those that they thought were true friends were simply constituents for the same cause not friends who have much else to offer each other. You must remember that causes and commonalities can bring you in contact with someone but they cannot be the foundation upon which you build a relationship. It’s important to have good people in your life, but it’s more important to recognize why they are there. If you united around a cause, will they remain in your life after the cause is complete? This doesn’t make them bad people, you just need to make sure that you understand their motive. Love them, embrace them, walk alongside them, but seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance as to whether or not they are truly meant to be a part your inner circle. Seek to grow a relationship with those who are for you, not just for a cause. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
