In the song, ‘She Drives Me Crazy’ (Polygram), the Fine Young Cannibals sing:
I won’t make it on my own,
No one likes to be alone.
How true it is that no human beings can reach their full potential or inner satisfaction on their own.
Dr Edgar of the Institute for Family Studies, recently stated that rampant individualism is doing enormous damage to our country.
Going it alone has tragic consequences for all of us. That’s why Jesus said that the only thing which matters ultimately is that we love God with all our hearts and our neighbour as much as ourselves.
Our society, in general, is obsesses with going it alone without God and without real commitment to each other. The Cannibals and Jesus are right. We won’t make it on our own!
