Charlie and Wally are hunter dogs. Wally will find a groundhog away from its hole and let out a long yip. Charlie then runs to cover one of his flanks. The two will surround the groundhog, jabbing and nipping at the animal. Charlie usually takes the backside, and Wally attacks the front.

The dogs’ teamwork is commendable. If they did not work together, they would not be successful.

It seems to me that we as Christians also need to do a better job of working together as a team.

Ephesians 4:11-13a “So Christ himself gave us the apostles, the prophets, pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith.”
