some thoughts about introversion/extroversion
It’s very interesting to think about the fact that although this world has such an Extrovert Ideal and introversion is often looked down on, Jesus values both introverts and extroverts both as parts of the church and introversion and extroversion as parts of a whole.
Each believer plays their own role in the church, calling for both personality types. In Exodus Moses “speaks with faltering lips” and so God tells Aaron to speak for him. While it can be necessary to move outside of comfort zones, God also provides us roles that match our position in the body of Christ as introverts and extroverts.
Additionally Christians are called to read the Word & pray, and fellowship with other believers. There is a time for being alone with God, away from the hustle and bustle of the world, and there is also a time to be involved with people. And both components are necessary in a walk with God.
