Today, I’m thankful for church.
It’s been a busy day. Singing, corralling the children, a nap & then the boys & I headed back to the church tonight to pop in a youth event, the Giving Thanks Dinner, to see David.
I won’t be the first to tell you- church is complicated. Why? Because it is imperfect. It is filled with imperfect people. And I am one of them.
Unfortunately, people get hurt sometimes. We hurt each other. It’s not intentional, but it ends up stinging us on a spiritual level.
So, how do we press on? How do we remove the stinger & move forward? For me, I needed to be reminded that it isn’t about me. It’s about US. It’s about gathering together. We need each other.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Today, I was surrounded by people who encouraged me. Thank you, church.
