Good Company

2 Corinthians 8:16,23
When mountain climbers scale a high peak, they go in teams. When scuba divers plunge into deep seas, they go in pairs. Why? They realize the necessity of sticking together in their pursuits. The apostle Paul follow the same principle in his missionary journeys. Whether he was sailing the Mediterranean, or traveling through Asia Minor, he always had someone to work with in ministry—Barnabas, Silas, Titus, Timothy. When it comes to ministry, we never have to go it alone. God has given us co-laborers, people whom we can take a deep interest in and spur on to great things. Take a look around you. Find someone you can support and challenge as a partner in the gospel. Through a faithful investment in others, you can partner with someone and climb higher or dive deeper into God‘s ministry. The truth is that teamwork is at the heart of great achievement.
