Intentional Appointments with Others

With a husband, children, home-business, family schedule, and church calendar (my husband is an Associate Pastor), I could easily miss out on actual fellowship if I left it to chance.


I'm not in college any longer - jonesing for a pizza at 2 AM, and thus, gathering dorm-mates and placing an order, just 'cause we can, doesn't happen any longer.

Life is a tad bit more crowed these days.

But, that is NO EXCUSE for NOT getting together in fellowship with other believers . . . it just means we must be intentional about doing so.

I have fellowship safety nets in place for a reason: if I didn't, I could very well hole up by myself and never gather with others. (Yes, even extroverts have an extreme introvert side). Plus doesn't the write of Hebrews tell us a warning about this very thing? "And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." (Hebrews 10:25, NLT)

Let us not neglect meeting together. Small group, Moms group, book club, fit club, supper club . . . it may sound like a lot - but all intentional - to insure that we are not giving up meeting and encouraging one another.
