Several years ago a friend of mind asked me 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 listed by Solomon: 1) Good return for their labor, 2) Lift up the other if one falls, 3) Keep each other warm when lying down together, and 4) If someone tries to overpower one who is alone, two can resist him. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
His argues, “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.
