Words from the Heart for Saturday March 20th, 2021
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT)
Motivate One Another
Achieving personal goals in the workplace may be the start of a more fulfilling career, according to 75% of Canadians surveyed by Léger. This means employees across the country are able to find personal satisfaction in their line of work. In fact, 90% feel ‘very engaged’ and 81% said they are ‘motivated’ in their career, the study commissioned by office supplies distributor Hamster found. By generation, 89% of Baby Boomers are said to be satisfied in the workplace, followed by 84% of Millennials.
One of the great challenges of the pandemic is that people are isolated from one another. Church leaders are all over the map about how to handle this when it comes to the fellowship of believers. Some disobey the authorities in the name of religious freedom, others obey the law and try to come up with creative options. I am grateful for technology that allows us to gather virtually with our brothers and sisters for worship. I know many believers who, from their family room couch, take in three or four church services on Sunday morning. However you are managing these unique days, the Bible is clear that we need one another. Hebrews 10:24-25 says: “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” We need each other in the body of Christ. We long for fellowship with our fellow believers. We are encouraged by others in our walk with Christ as we gather together. In these days of pandemic, find creative ways to gather with other believers.
These have been words from the heart.
