Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12- "Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
We have a calling from God to be partners in Christ. We are better together. The job we face, reaching the world for Christ, is bigger than all of us. We need to pull together in partnership. Partnership is: less "me" and more "we."
Work is done better when things are done together. People who are unified for a common goal accomplish so much more that those who are divided. Support is key! We walk better together: there is a personal and corporate success that is the by-product of accountability. Accountability keeps us focused and encourages us to fulfill our goals! We can overcome pride, loneliness, fear and social deficiencies together.
We witness better together: we need each other's support and encouragement. The people we are trying to reach need support and encouragement. We need each other! We worship better together. A worshipper is someone who admires God too much to recognize the faults in His children! There is so much power in praying together, giving together, celebrating together and encouraging each other together.
Life really is better when it is done together!
