I was thinking this morning.... I had the privilege of visiting the Banff National Park recently. As I got atop the Sulfur Mountain via the Gondola enjoying the breathtaking views of the rocky mountains and turquoise glacial Lake, my heart stood still in awe of the greatness of God.

While a few individuals came alone, most people, like us, came in small groups. I scanned the faces of people around and could tell that those in groups were enjoying the best moments. Yes, someone might have come there alone to be inspired, but those that came with friends and family did not only find inspiration but also love and happiness. It led me to the conclusion that the best moments in life are in fellowship.

I remember my first time of visiting Paris years ago, I was alone. As beautiful as the City was, my experience does not compare with my visit, with friends and family, to Idanre Hills in Ondo State, Nigeria. Sharing the awe, fear and laughter with friends and family was simply divine. Truly, our best moments in life are in fellowship.

Cast your mind back to the days of the Covid-19 lockdown when we all had to join Church services online. Lack of physical connection made the virtual service feel dry like vegetable salad without cream. When we eventually resumed in-person service, it was like a big celebration. No doubt, our best moments are in fellowship, this time fellowship with fellow believers.

Why would one be 'forming' class, ignoring friends and isolating from family, believing it is the way to peace and happiness? True, there are some people one must avoid for your safety and sound mental health, but the friends and family you lose in one part, you should gain in another, because our best moments in life are in fellowship.

Do not shut people out by your attitude until they become lonely because our best moments in life are in fellowship. There is a reason God placed everyone in a family. It is for fellowship. True happiness is in sharing with and serving others and not in self aggrandisement or feeding self. Romans 12:10 says 'Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.'

Stay hopeful. God's got our back.

Happy Sunday!
