Who’s in your tribe?

I live in a city of a couple million people. There are times that life in the city is fantastic. People from nearly every culture are represented. My city is infamous for its sports fans. I mean, who throws ice balls at Santa? Oh yeah…Eagles fans 🤦‍♀️

But I digress. I’ve lived in this city for 8-9 years now. You’d think I’d have a teibe here, right? It’s very small. You can count them on 1 hand. Seriously. Not counting the thumb. 

You have to be very careful with who you let in your inner circle. Jesus had levels of intimacy. He had the twelve disciples, then he had the three he was super close to, then he had John. 

I have a close knit tribe…but they are located all over the country. Pennsylvania.  New York. California. Dallas. Virginia. New Jersey. These are people that, if I need to, I can call upon any time of day or night. And they can call upon me at any time. 

One of the most important things in life is having a tribe of people around whom you can be completely vulnerable. You laugh together. You cry together. You celebrate one another’s successes. You mourn the losses and help one another up. The song Lean on Me says it best 😊

So, who’s in your tribe?
