Sorry that I am late to post Saturday’s bible talk. It was a crazy busy day! I hope you understood my message and can practice it in your daily life at school. Here it is:
Good morning, today’s reading is Hebrews 10, 23-25
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
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.
Last time I spoke to you I talked about three words that could mean “一緒に”: together, cooperation, and unity. Today I want to add one more work to this list: fellowship.
When I was a boy in Vancouver I went to church every Sunday. Of course, I listened to the sermon in church, as well as the Sunday school lessons taught in the children’s center. But, my favorite time was the tea and coffee hour at the end. It was my chance to meet church friends that went to different schools, and also meet my parent’s friends and grandparent’s friends. We all met on Sundays to share the message of God. Fellowship.
During these days of covid-19, meeting together has been difficult. We are told to “stay apart” and “stay home”. However, we shouldn’t forget the importance of fellowship. Like the bible says, when we are together we can “encourage each other”, and “spur one another on toward love and good deeds”. Right now, school is probably the best place to practice this. I hope all of you take the chance you have everyday, to fill our school with good deeds, and to fill our friends’ hearts full of love.
