Together is Better

I’ve talked about teams before; being connected to people, having the same interests, the same goals. Our current environment has forced us all to alter our lives to a new normal. We have been asked to stay home to prevent the spread of this virus. To some, staying home, getting back to our family, is a wonderful thing. A time to reflect and continue our continuity within our family unit. It’s always been God’s desire for us to be together.

In the Bible, it tells us that we need each other. Together is better, but unfortunately there are broken families, lives crushed by disappointment and strife. Their view of togetherness is devastating.

How are these people doing in this crisis? I can only imagine. But, there is good news; light in the tunnel. It’s finding a hope and a future. And the only way is through Jesus.

God calls us His Church. Oh, how I miss being together with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I miss the hugs and encouragement of my friends. Together is what God wants. Reach out to someone who is lonely today. Text or call them and let them know they are not alone. Together we can fight this battle and overcome this distraction of life.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 – “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
