Ecclesiastes 4:9 – Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork

Earlier this month the Houston Astros won the World Series. That same week the team had a victory parade in downtown Houston. 

A joyful time for the team, fans and city. For one woman though, it almost turned into a disappointment.

While watching the parade from one of the upper floors of a parking garage, she dropped her hat, and it seemed like it would just have to be an unfortunate casualty of the day’s excitement.

Fortunately for her, fellow fans came to the rescue with an impressive relay up the garage.

Ecclesiastes 4:9 says “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.” When individuals work together, they can double their strength and get much more done as a team. They also reap the value of having worked in unison, thus creating harmony instead of disorder. Working as one people begins with the efforts of each person, as they work with another person.
