Hebrews 10:25 (NASB) not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
“Maybe I should check it.” During a hard rain, my wife commented that she heard our sump pump kick on a few times in the last hour. So, I thought I better go down and check it out to make sure everything was okay. Today's scripture speaks of not forgetting to get together, about encouraging one another. It didn't take that long to go and check to make sure things were running right, and as I did, I thought about how long it had been since I checked on it. Sometimes life gets busy, and we forget things that may need checked on once in while… like old friends that we haven't spoken with in too long. Maybe we've lost touch and need to reach out and see how things are going. With modern technology, it doesn't take but a moment to send a text, a Facebook message, or a Snapchat to just say hello… you’re being thought of… prayed for you, etc. No one likes to get their feet wet, but everyone likes a friendly hello. What are you waiting for? Text a friend!
