"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. "
Meetings, gatherings and get-togethers can sometimes be overwhelming, especially when you are already working with a tight schedule. The meeting you have to attend today isn't just to take up your time, but rather to keep you informed of what's going on. Don't think of your next meeting as just a waste of time; but rather take new energy with you. Your energy may be the difference in encouraging the whole group.
