Are you a lone ranger or team player? That’s a crucial question in life. Watch this session and see why.
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 9:2, 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! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, ESV
“Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.” Proverbs 18:1, ESV
Do you live your life as a solo act? Does it embarrass you to ask for help? Do you hate to show need because you think people will think you are weak? You may be great at helping others, but did you know that at the root of not wanting to ask for or need the help of others is a form of arrogance? It’s a self-handicapping attitude when you can’t admit your imperfections and need. We’re all imperfect. We all need others. We were made to bear each other’s burdens.
Ask yourself what is really at the root of why you hesitate to share your challenges or ask for help? I bet you feel ok about helping someone else when they share their difficulty or need. Decide to be a team player.
Choose one person that you can open up to and share with. Give them a call, or better yet, set up a meeting. Ask someone for advice or prayer today, and during this week. Offer your support and prayers to someone else, this week, and for the rest of your life. Share a burden. Bear a burden. Don’t isolate. Build a team of friends in your life.
