Working Together

All in favor of conserving gasoline, please raise your right foot 
     ~Author. Unknown
I have a serious concern to bring up with you, my friends, using the authority of Jesus, our Master. I’ll put it as urgently as I can: You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common.
~1 Cor. 1:10
     A helicopter landed on our school property.  We all thought it was a car accident.  The field had to be evacuated, and the police and the ambulance were at the ready.  A man had injured himself with a chain saw and had to be air-transported to a local university hospital.  All we knew was, we were to say inside. 
     There was a flurry of activity and there were children concerned about the injured party (who no one ever saw).  The principal lifted the “all clear” signal and school life resumed as “normal” as normal can be at this time of year.
     Everything went smoothly outside because of cooperation between the police, security, staff and children.  My dad used to say that there are rules in place for our protection.  The same is true of the church.
     We must get along. The toe doesn’t have to be in love with the eyelash, but they must all work together for the body to function properly.   If you injure a foot and compensate, the rest of the body suffers.  Today, step out in Jesus Christ, using your human body which must look before it leaps, and your sense of community that walks by faith.
Cooperation Makes it Happen
Almighty God, thank you that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Help us to act as one body in community, one healthy body that just wants to work together, praising You.
     Because of Him,
