I use twist ties for lots of things–bread bags, computer wires that snake across my office, organizing loose keys, and so forth.
And, unfortunately, I sometimes treat people a bit like twist-ties, looking mostly for what makes them useful.
Yett in my more spiritual moments I remember that people aren’t things. I need to love people, and focus my “using” on things that are, uhh, just things.
Paul said “I will gladly spend and be spent for you” I need to be more like that.
