In most businesses, there are various people who are
skilled at different things that contribute to the project.
For example, if one company was going to construct a
building, they would have various workers on their team.
There would be an architect, a manager, a financial chair,
a project coordinator. Then of course there would be
construction workers, each doing a different job whether
it be scaffolding or deconstructing. It makes sense, no
one would be able to do the whole job alone. What
would the building look like with only the architect? It
would simply stay on paper.
It is so logical, yet so often we try to be church by ourselves or with others just like us. We try to grow in our
disciplines and journey by ourselves, journaling but not
sharing and processing with others. Or we are walk the
journey with those we know will agree with us, not being
challenged or sharpened.
And then there is the church. What would the church
look like with only the preacher or only the choir? Just as
a construction team needs others to get the project done,
so do we need one another to build up the Kingdom of
God here on earth.
Are you surrounding yourself with others to sharpen and
stretch you, or are you staying comfortable?
