Everything is better together! WE is greater than ME! In our culture, we highlight the leader, hero, or superstar… Yet, big accomplishments rarely achieved alone—it takes people!
Ecclesiastes 4:9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
- Work together (“good reward for their toil.”) [Let’s get it done!]
- ENCOURAGE each other (“if they fall, one will lift up”) [I am here with you!]
- Provide for and care for each other (“they keep warm”) [You are not alone!]
- Take on challenges together (“two will withstand him”) [I have your back]
Just because I feel INVISIBLE does not mean that I am INSIGNIFICANT! Someone might not SEE or ACKNOWLEDGE my contribution but that does not mean they do not FEEL or EXPERIENCE what I do! Your contribution matters.
We is greater than me because WE CAN DO MORE than me. WE MAKES THE LOAD LIGHTER… than just me carrying it.
