When We All Pull Together

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?

─ Amos 3:3 NLT

We are better together. No matter what we are working toward, God uses partnerships and divine connections. We gain momentum when we work with others to obtain a God-given goal. Like the analogy of two oxen pulling together, they can pull more together than the sum of what they can pull alone.

Today’s verse asks, “Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?” Difficult relationships – especially with co-laborers – hamper God’s will and increase our desire to do things our own way. Some things you can do to be used of God through the divine connections He provides include:

  1. Be quick to forgive.
  2. Give grace, especially when you don’t think someone deserves it.
  3. Always choose to think the best of every person.
  4. Be generous in giving others the benefit of the doubt.
  5. Go to those whom you feel like you have offended and seek peace.

Similar to today’s verse, Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, “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” (NLT).

Christ is pleased when we endeavor to advance His Kingdom. When we partner together, the work is multiplied and blessed.
