This month we will be learning about cooperation, which is working together to do more than you can do alone. God has made us in such a way that we can accomplish greater things when we work together.
Our memory verse this month is Ecclesiastes 4:9 - “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” This verse will encourage us to consider our relationship with others, and remind us that it is better to cooperate than to compete.
This week, we head to a story found in Luke 5:17-26. We discover a paralyzed man who just happened to have some really good friends. When His friends heard that Jesus was in town, they tried everything to get their friend to Jesus. In fact, as friends, they cooperated, tore a hole in a roof, and dropped their friend down in front of Jesus while He was teaching. And as a result of their faith and cooperation a miracle happened.
The Bottom Line this week is Work together to help someone in need. When we see others with needs that seem huge and overwhelming, we too often think they’re too big for us to help and end up doing nothing. However, if we cooperate with others to meet their need, we have a better chance making a difference in their life and point them to God.
See you Thursday!
