MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. 11Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? 12And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
I was thinking about these verses this weekend, especially verse 11, about warmth. It was incredibly cold this weekend and being outside at all was a hairy proposition and was very dangerous, hence the reason we moved our worship service and annual meeting inside.
I thought about this on Saturday when I got a call from a home bound member whose furnace had gone out. They needed some heat until they could get it repaired. So I took over our space heater from the entryway in the church and I called a couple of members to help as well as put a post up on Facebook. And the response was awesome. I have to get major credit to Lonna Borgert for getting some space heaters and even getting someone over there to fix the furnace much faster than normal. I want to thank all those who messaged me with offers to help in any way they could. A few hours later, the furnace was going and people were warm.
It was the epitome of these verses. They are often used in weddings, and appropriately so. But these verses are about how, together, we can be strong. How we can come together in common purpose for the sake of our neighbor, held together by our common faith in Jesus Christ.
We can withstand anything together and the church is all about supporting each other, helping each other, lifting each other up. And frankly, not just the church. This is what our communities, schools, and nation should be about. Helping each other. Working for each other. Supporting each. Joined by common purpose for the sake of the neighbor.
I’m very thankful to all who helped this weekend to make one person warm. I’m thankful for all that you do to help your neighbor. May the Lord be with us and help us to always be there for each other. Have a great week and may God bless you today and always!
