Building A Team
Carry each other's burdens,
and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Way up on the top of the Spanish Pyrenees Mountains lives the beautiful but elusive mountain goat. Mature mountain goats are often hunted for their coats, but it's extremely difficult to get within shooting range. Why? Because the mature goat has a companion: a young goat with good eyesight, good hearing and a good sense of smell follows it wherever it goes and sounds the warning if enemies emerge.
The rhinoceros is another magnificent animal. It can run at remarkable speeds and despite its poor eyesight, is fearless in charging its enemies. But the rhino gets help. The rhino's skin is infested with ticks, which are a delicacy to a little bird that rides on its back. The birds have keen eyesight, and when they sense danger they sound the alarm, alerting the rhino.
If you'd like to live your life in Christ to the fullest, you need to team up with others too! We weren't meant to go it alone! Choose to connect and to relate to others.
