Together not alone

Recently I spent two weeks as a single parent while my wife was away visiting family.

Overall things went well, we all got fed, the kids made it to school on time and the world didn’t come to an end. :)

Snow CarryThose two weeks gave me additional respect for single parents and what they have to go through, but it also made me realize just how much stronger our family unit is when Penni and I are both parenting.  Working together, using each others strengths, encouraging, trusting and carrying the load when the other person cannot.

If working together with your spouse to raise a family makes you and your family stronger, imagine what could be done in the church if we did the same thing.  Trusted each other, walked a life journey together with another person, having someone who can carry you when you can no longer take a step forward?

The world tells us that the successful person is the one who did it themselves.  The Kingdom principle is “Together not alone”

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
