Membership matters; treat it that way.
We were not created to be alone, to meander along through life doing our own thing. God created us to be a part of the human race. God calls families, tribes, and nations and even when He picks out an individual for a special unique service (like John the Baptist) it is in the context of helping the many.
If you have a job, you are a member of a team.
If you have a family, you are a member of the family.
If there is a town or city that you call home, then you are a member of that community.
If there is a church you frequent, then you are a member of that community of faith.
The best way to leverage your life for the good is through membership.
The best way to protect yourself is through membership.
Unfortunately, the best way to ruin yourself is also through membership—aligning yourself with the wrong group (Proverbs 1:10-19).
The ONE THING for today? Membership matters; treat it that way.
