Overcoming loneliness: Part 2 — Angus Buchan


During a TV talk show in the the early 1960s an interviewer asked Dr Billy Graham what was the most common request in letters sent to him. Without any hesitation, the evangelist replied that the most terrible need in the world was loneliness.

I personally believe that loneliness is still the greatest problem and that it has become progressively worse in the days in which we are living. People are lonely, not only in the country but probably even more so in the big cities.

When I travel, and look at the people sitting in the bus, which takes us to the aeroplane to catch our flight overseas, no one is talking to each other. All the people are reading messages on their cellphones and iPads.

I have no problem with cellpbhones, because I know they are very useful and handy for the distribution of the Word of God. But unfortunately, they do sometimes contribute towards people not communicating with each other.

There is nothing I like better when I return home from an overseas trip, than to sit down with my best friend, Jill, and have a nice, long cup of tea with her, and to speak about everything that has gone on while I’ve been away. Jill has a sign up in our dining room, which says, “where there is tea, there is hope”. Of course, it’s not the tea that I’m talking about, really. It’s actually about spending time talking to my loved ones while drinking tea.

Jesus Christ is our best friend and is always available to have a chat with us whenever we want to! That is why He came down from Heaven to Earth in the form of a baby, Emmanuel, (God with us), to ensure that we need never be lonely. Please, spend more time talking with Him, He loves you so much!

Jesus bless you
