The Day After...

The day after Christmas is one of the busiest shopping days because stores are hoping to move the Christmas merchandise off the shelves and make room for the next big push, whatever that might be.  Most stores offer 50% off or more on selected items and if you are in the market for that item, you're in business.  More than likely, if you are looking for a bargain, you won't be alone.  You'll have plenty of company of people who are looking for the same thing.

Which brings us to the conversation that we left off from yesterday...we're better when we are in connection with others.  Maybe not power shopping, but as a whole, we need others to connect with in our daily living.  The writer of Hebrews is one place in scripture that lifts this dynamic up:
"24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25 - New International Version (NIV)
I love the part of that which states "not giving up meeting together".  Surely we need our down time away from people.  We need our private moments.  But don't give up on connecting with others.  Find ways to make that happen.  Join a group.  Get out of the house and be around people.  You won't find this kind of connection on FaceBook or Twitter.

It's face to face with others that makes the difference!
