You know, it's good to invest time in the relationships of those in the household of faith.
I was thinking today about being in a Sunday School class when I was a young single adult, and I remember so clearly thinking how these were my people. I was so thankful for them, and the confidence I had that these people could touch heaven on my behalf. I knew I would go to them before even thinking about a professional in any field of whatever need I had. Why? Because, I knew, above all else, I needed God! I needed people in my life who needed God and walked with God, who walked and lived by faith, who believed God was as big and as good as the Bible tells us He is, people who believed that God was indeed a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him!
These 42 years later, I still believe in the power of these relationships, and how very much I need these God loving, God fearing, God believing people in my life. We all not only need these people, we need to BE these people!
Cultivate these God given relationships in your life! Let it be said of us that "They feared the Lord and got together and talked often to one another, and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of us who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His Name." (Malachi 3:16)

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold strong to the confession of our hope, never wavering, since the One who promised it to us is faithful. 24 Let us consider how to inspire each other to greater love and to righteous deeds, 25 not forgetting to gather as a community, as some have forgotten, but encouraging each other, especially as the day of His return approaches.
