“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NLT
Hellen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. How true this is! When we come together and work together to achieve a common goal, we can do so much more than if we were to stay apart and try to do something all by ourselves. Whether it is a fitness goal, a community goal, a relational goal or even a financial goal, we need each other.
It takes a T.E.A.M. to make a dream a reality!
T – Togetherness
E – Engagement
A – Availability
M – Motivation
We are stronger together.
Families that are united are often happier and more resilient. Employees that are united are more productive. Christians that are united more effectively demonstrate the love of God and advance the purposes of God on the earth.
We must come together and work together to succeed.
One level of togetherness is being in close proximity, and that’s a great place to start. But, we must graduate to another level of togetherness where we develop likemindedness. We have common understanding. We can help each other, combining our strengths to cover our weaknesses, and helping each other up when we fall. We are here to help each other succeed.
Whether in our homes, in our workplaces, our communities or our churches, when we work as a team we will achieve much more than when we work separately. What we must understand is this… when I succeed, you succeed and when you succeed, I succeed.
We need each other. We cannot live this life in isolation. Today, take a few moments to consider the “teams” that you are part of – family, ministry, etc. Have you come “together” with the other members – mentally, emotionally, spiritually? How can you develop more togetherness?
