February 24th – Rambo

Together I send you, for no man who walks alone is stronger for it. Suffering happens in isolation. Decisions are poor without counsel. The warrior alone falls, for easily is he overpowered. In all your toil seek Me, that I would show you strength in another. A partnership blessed is great gain. Selfish motives have destroyed the representation of what I have created to be holy. My people are not to walk alone. Called by two or more, for in the brotherhood of the faithful, there is great wisdom and protection. The world paints a false illusion of strength. My people are strongest together in My name. Look for those who walk with Me, that you would not walk alone.

Eccl 4:9-10 (ESV) – Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!

Bottom Line: Our culture loves a superhero – one who can muscle through. In God’s “real world” and in the world of work and family, the “Rambo” mentality is a sure way toward fatigue and failure. Look for a brother or sister in Christ who God has placed near you, who can be a friend and support to journey along this path of life together with you.
