So we have had a houseful of family in for the holidays. It’s been great. One of the gifts for my Mom was a 1000 piece puzzle. This puzzle has now become the holiday project. It’s been an interesting dynamic to participate in. At first it was just mom, working mostly by herself. She’s a pretty good puzzle solver, but it was going slow. One by one, each of us began to help. Soon the whole family was involved. When one got tired, another would jump in to help. Soon we had momentum and enthusiasm and the picture began to appear right before our eyes. What was daunting alone, became doable and fun together.

God has designed us to work together to achieve His highest and best. Sometimes we are overwhelmed with the difficulty and complexity of life. God has given us His body, the church to work as one to accomplish what seems impossible, in His Kingdom, in the world and in our own lives.

1 Corinthians 12:27
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

So let all work together and give God all the credit,

happy to be a part of it,

Joe
