Lessons from Quarantine

Some personal thoughts about what this pandemic has taught me…

Life gets hectic, and we take a lot of things for granted. For almost 40 years, God has placed some absolutely wonderful people in my path. I have lived in 4 states and ministered in more churches than I can count now, at least 11 of those on some sort of staff position (if you can’t tell my ministry is more transitional in nature than long-term). I would say I could count a few thousand people who have come into my life in some capacity.

I have learned to value those relationships more during this time. I have reached out to people I haven’t spoken to in years, and it has been wonderful. I want to value those who have invested in my life and let them know it.

My challenge to you – don’t take the people in your life for granted. I know we don’t have a ton of time to stay close to everyone, but a few minutes to make a quick call, write a note, or send a message means more than you’ll ever know. Don’t leave this season without holding those you love a little tighter.
