DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Sunday, October 25, 2015

Today’s scripture reading:

There are advantages to cooperating with others. Life is designed for companionship, not isolation, for intimacy, not loneliness. Some people prefer isolation, thinking they cannot trust anyone. We are not here on earth to serve ourselves, however, but to serve God and others. Don’t isolate yourself and try to go it alone. Seek companions; be a team member. (NLT)

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 – Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

Today will never come again

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mike Slaton (Alabama) titled his story “IN UNISON;” here is a portion of Mike’s story:

“. . . We will worship God by working together to accomplish the work placed in our path. . .”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – We can have unity when we love Christ and make his desires our desires.

Prayer: Dear God, help us to act in ways that show those around us our compassion, kindness, gentleness, and patience. Amen.
