“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour” (Ecclesiastes 4:9).Text — Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
The word ‘Synergy’ is a Greek word meaning, “Working Together.” One of the hymns we grew up singing, by C. Austin Miles, reads in part:
“So you bring the one next to you
And I’ll bring the one next to me;
In all kinds of weather,
We’ll all work together,
And see what can be done…”
Have you observed how players or sportsmen strategize in order to achieve a common objective? Synergy is an essential component of today’s competitive world. God designed us to need one another. Jethro’s wise advice to Moses to delegate some of his responsibilities convinced him to share the workload with other leaders (Exodus 18:13-27).This principle of delegation is being applied successfully in the Church and secular world today.
As Christian youths, we tend to think we can make it on our own. Do you feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities? Begin to harness your vision today by synergizing with vision builders, not vision killers. Gainful labour is a product of shared responsibilities. It helps you to discover and develop your God-given abilities for a fulfilled life.
Synergize with vision builders
Do not be a lone ranger.
Prayer for today
Lord, give me the grace to benefit from others’ strengths.
