“I thank my God every time I remember you.” Philippians 1:3 (NIV)

When I was a child, our family would take summer vacations to visit relatives we didn’t get to interact with regularly, so we could get to know them better. Today, with the benefits of cellular phones, computers and social media, one no longer needs to spend a large lump sum of money to interact with their loved ones. Take, for instance, my children, who all live at the geographical oddity of 10-12 hours’ drive from me. If it were not for technology and social media (Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Whattsapp, etc), we would not be as connected as we are. On any given day, I may be sitting in the comfort of my home chatting with my children and grandchildren on Skype on my phone or on my laptop, or reading about their day on Facebook or Instagram. Though the way in which we interact today is quite different than when I was growing up, connectedness is something most people enjoy feeling.

In the Biblical times, letters kept people connected. The Apostle Paul wrote several letters to greet different churches and people he wanted to encourage and, at times, admonish. In spite of all the technology we have available today, I still enjoy getting out a card or some paper and practicing some penmanship by writing a note to someone I have not seen in a while, or someone who needs encouragement, or a congratulatory note of sorts… I even delight myself in putting some shiny confetti shaped as hearts, stars, musical notes, or any other fun shape in my letters to brighten someone else’s day.

Whatever the means that keeps you connected with those you love – letters, cards, phone calls, text messages, prayer, and so forth – be encouraged that you may be the reason someone has remained true to God’s Word and has not given up on believing. You make a difference for the kingdom.

“Lord, You are the reason we live. You are the life.”

For His Glory
