THE HISTORY OF TEAMWORK

 

   At a Midwestern fair, there was an event called the horse pull.  Strong horses were hitched to a sled on which were placed various weights.  The grand champion horse pulled 4,500 pounds.  The runner-up pulled just over 4,400 pounds.  Someone was curious about how much weight these two horses could pull together, as a team.  So they were hitched together to a sled.  As a team they pulled over 12,000 pounds!

   

  Having a partner or a team inspires us to efforts that we might not make alone.  King Solomon offered a similar perception: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up…” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).

 

    Is someone near you facing a challenge that would be manageable with a helper like you?
