If we want to go quickly, go alone, but if we want to go further, let’s go together! (Bavon Jonas Aladoum, African pastor)
In the spirit of independence (and hurry), we often try to go it alone. After all, we can do the job more quickly by ourselves. By doing so, however, we can miss a lot. We miss the opportunity for camaraderie, the joy of working together with a friend or co-worker. We may miss the chance to encourage and train someone for a similar job. We may even be able to get a lot more done.
Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. (Philippians 2:2i)
