Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (1 Tim. 6:17-18)

Let's Do Lunch

Lunchtime is a great opportunity to strengthen old friendships, build new relationships, mentor others, and even be mentored, yourself.

I'm the type of person who likes to save time and money wherever I can. I typically eat a brought lunch at my desk in order to save work time and budget cash. You know, there's an old saying that "a brought lunch is better than a bought lunch."

Over the last several months, though, I have been in need of counsel, information, and wisdom in both my personal and work life. So, I have purposely sought out people who have the experience and knowledge I've needed to help me. After identifying the people in my "who network" who could assist me, I set up lunch appointments with these friends by email or phone. I always come away from these luncheons extremely thankful that I made the time to do it.

Lunch meetings are a great way to meet with others in order to learn and grow. With whom do you need to schedule a lunch appointment with this week?


  1. In my circle we have coffee. The best time to meet for me is early in the mornings.

  2. Hey, Chad - yeah, I've done mornings as well. Either way works for me!
