Don't Worry 16 - Seek Christian Fellowship

16. Seek Christian fellowship

Avoid being on your own.  Don’t avoid meeting with other believers.  Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Heb 10:25 )

There’s a tendency when we’re worried to cut ourselves off from others, especially the people of God.  I don’t know if it’s because we feel inadequate, or because worrying makes us feel that we haven’t time for Christian fellowship.  Whatever the reason, it’s got to be unhelpful — if only because fellow Christians will help us to focus on the important issues and encourage us to stop thinking only about ourselves.
