Get into it!

Whatever you’re doing wherever you go;
Get into it!

When you’re out and about, don’t be half-hearted about things.

Have you ever been out with a group of friends, and one of them says

“Whatever, I’m not really in the mood but…”

Or someone just stays quiet, watches and doesn’t try to get involved.

It really dampens people’s spirits, and makes others feel uncomfortable.
I’ve been guilty of this more than once. Less in recent years.

If you’re involved in something get involved. Take the lead once in a while, see what happens when you’re out with people and want to do things. If everyone in the group is having fun, then it’s easy to keep it that way, figure out what to do, or just be together.

Think about it for a second: your getting ready to go out (guys 15 mins max, girls 30 mins minimum – in my experience), you head out the door, you’re thinking about the day ahead, the people you see and what you’ll do together…What atmosphere do you want to add to today?

It’s more fun with friends

Whatever you are doing, why do it alone?

Whether its going to a restaurant, eating at home or playing outside on a sunny day, it’s more fun to do it with someone!

Something I gained in Lifegroup

When I first went to Lifegroup, I had no idea what it was about, only that some people got together to study the Bible,

and I couldn’t think of anything more boring than that other than watching paint dry.

 

Since that was my only other choice most Sundays, I decided to give it a try. I’d already decided to be a Christian, so why not learn more about it.

When I got there, I didn’t know what to think. There was a group of people, sitting and having coffee together (or in my case, hot chocolate) and chatting and laughing.

They looked like normal people! Well, here is the breaking news…
They Are!
I was confused, weren’t we supposed to be sitting down and seriously diving “deep” into the Bible and talking about weird stuff?

Image

What I really found was a group of friends. Not just people passing through my life, and not people who were there the one week, and gone the next. These people were there for me every week.

Image

More than that, They were there for me during the week too; having breakfast together, and celebrating my birthday.
Every low point in my life those friends are still there for me, and every high point, those same friends are right there to be happy with me.
