“We just cared more.”

That’s the “only answer” that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, could ever think of in view of the famous social network’s anniversary when he asked: “When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it. The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more. … We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today.” (https://www.facebook.com/zuck)

Zuckerberg admitted he never imagined Facebook to be where it is now. He felt it was a rare privilege to do what he did. “It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s rare to be able to touch so many people’s lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can. … I always thought this was important—giving people the power to share and stay connected, empowering people to build their own communities themselves.” (Ibid)

God gave us a greater privilege. We believers have a common bond in the Spirit, having been given the authority to become His children when we believed in our Lord Jesus (John 1:12-13). That’s why we need to connect even more with one another. “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:24-25, ESV)

It shouldn’t be a rarity for us believers to connect—and stay connected—with each other.

Brothers and sisters, let us care to connect more.
