Find Things in Common By Rick Warren
“You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common” (1 Corinthians 1:10 The Message).
If you don’t work well with other people, you’re going to spend much of your life unhappy. What do you need to learn in order to work with other people? First, learn to cooperate with others. The church in Philippi had sent a man named Epaphroditus to Rome with a gift of financial support for Paul while he was in prison. Philippians 2:25 says, “I feel that I must send Epaphroditus—my brother, coworker, and fellow soldier—back to you. You sent him as your personal representative to help me in my need” (GWT). By calling Epaphroditus his brother, coworker, and fellow soldier, Paul was describing life and ministry as a family, a fellowship, and a fight. As believers, we in the same fight together against Satan, and we need to support each other. The best place to learn how to cooperate with others is in the church. Second, learn to be considerate. Paul is speaking of Epaphroditus again in Philippians 2:26 when he says, “He has been longing to see all of you and is troubled because you heard that he was sick” (GW). This verse includes two examples of consideration. Paul is considerate of his coworker’s homesickness, and Epaphroditus is considerate of the Philippians’ concern. The more you’re considerate of other people’s needs, doubts, and fears, the happier you will be. If you are inconsiderate, you’re going to have an unhappy marriage or friendship or work environment. “Cultivating a life in common” takes work. Like a garden that requires cultivation to bear fruit, your efforts will bear the fruit of happiness and strong relationships.
Have a fabulous Friday
