If there is one thing that I have learned over the past year of being a part of this group is that it’s the little things that mean the most. Whether that be eating lunch with a group of friends or going shopping for an event. If it’s a few people or if it’s a bunch of people, that does not matter. Grabbing coffee with someone or just being there to talk with them, those are the moments that you remember, and that they remember.
Too often, I think we start to get caught up in what we have to do and staying on task and we kind of shut down into our own little world. Quite frankly, there are some times–for example, midterms–when staying completely on task and keeping to yourself is necessary to get things done. However, our whole life should not be kept in isolation. Our daily lives should be full of little moments that we will cherish long after we graduate.
Acts 2:46-47 says, “Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.” The early church shared meals and fellowshipped together daily. They were one people, singing praises to God together.
I challenge you to take time and share that meal with someone this week. Take that extra little bit of time to play a board game, or take a walk in the park. Or just gather with a group of friends and sing praises to God. However you choose to, go and share those moments that will turn into precious memories.
