Community News 7/13/17

Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Be a Man in Community
Our friendships are often founded through common interests – sports, media, etc. It can’t stop there. Paul is clear – friendships are strongest when their conversations are focused on ‘love and good works.’ Hebrews specifically tells us we need to meet together. This seems simple enough, but it reminds us – it takes effort to have friends. Friendships typically drift away for one reason: two people stop putting in the effort. Commit today to putting in the energy it takes to maintain solid, Godly friendships.
Practical Steps
  1. Pray this morning that God would remind you daily of the importance of your friendships, and be sure to connect with at least one friend this week or next.
