When the disciples were gathered after the crucifixion, Thomas wasn’t there. His delay in getting with fellow believers left him alone in questioning the resurrection. He even told his friends that he wouldn’t believe their word as they told him about seeing Jesus. That initial delay led to doubt - even doubting his closest friends. That doubt led to denial that the story of Jesus was true.
When trying times come in our life it is sometimes natural for us to withdraw from everyone as we recoil in pain or doubt. But we must run to God and His people for support in times of trouble. When we delay, it can lead us further away from the only source that can give us hope.
