My alarm rings at 6am on Thursdays. If I get up immediately I can be at the Syosset Campus by 6:30am to work out (lifting weights) with a group of men. When the alarm went off this week I wanted to hit “snooze”. My body said stay in bed but my mind instantly thought about my buddies waiting for me. They didn’t need me to unlock the church or lead the exercises (I’m learning from them). What gets me out of bed is our shared commitment to strengthen each other as we strengthen our own bodies.

Hebrews 10:24 says “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another…” These guys spur me on to take care of my body. They lift me up in my walk with Jesus by their encouragement and by just being there. Do you have a person or group that pushes you and helps you grow stronger as you follow Jesus?

I believe silence is underrated. A few weeks ago, I lost my grandmother. She was a dear woman of God, who loved her family and community. When I went back to Virginia for the memorial service, I was honored as people told stories of my grandmother and mentioned how proud she was of her grandchildren - all lovely and heartfelt. However, there were so many who said not a word. They just came to the service, brought a meal or sent a card to show support and love. So often I think I need to say something in certain situations to make another feel better. Time and again in Scripture, we find that the best approach is to use fewer words and more listening. The same is true in our relationship with God. Wisdom is to keep your mouth silent more than to speak. You learn more by hearing from God, and others, than speaking your mind and opinions. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. (Ecclesiastes 5:2)
