Yes, Size Does Matter

The way I see it, a group of more than a handful of men is not Christian fellowship.  Why?  In a larger group, we guys don't get real with one another.  We tend to have on our game faces.  We don't open up.  We don't reveal our inner struggles (yeah, we all have them).

So what's the point of superficial, casual conversation?  How is that experiencing real life?  Jesus chose twelve to get up close and personal - but with only three to be super intimate with (Peter, James and John). 

So, size does matter.  Smaller is better.  When larger?  Well, you get lost in anonymity.  You hide the stuff that counts with an active faith life.  

Isn't it interesting that the things that matter most to us, we talk about least?

The secret is a few deep-spirited friendships where there is absolute trust among our band of brothers.

"If you think of your church as a ship, the small groups are the lifeboats attached to it," says Pastor Rick Warren.   

Jesus:  "When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action.  And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I'll be there." (Matthew 18:19-20 -Message Bible paraphrase)  

Men Who Win bond together in soul knitting, spirit expanding friendships.  It is the only way God can use us to our fullest potential. 

So, Brothers, keep looking, searching, and praying until you find one or two other Christian men to meet with regularly that you can get real with.
