Several years ago a friend of mine asked about the one thing I had learned in all my study of the Bible. He followed up by saying, “Always remember, you can’t make it on your own.”
The lesson I learned that day left a lasting impact on my life and ministry.
I am reminded of the thought expressed by Solomon; “Two are better than one.” Notice the reasons why listed by Solomon” 1) Good return for their labor, 2) Lift up each other if one falls, 3) Keep each other warm when they lie down together, and 4) If one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
His conclusion claims “a cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.”
The idea helps us understand there is strength in numbers. Satan, our adversary, wants us alone because he knows we are more vulnerable.
Leadership is no exception. Leaders need to work together to encourage one another, grow to maturity, and defeat the enemy.
The strength leaders gain from being together will lay a foundation for future leaders.
