CULTIVATING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

CULTIVATING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

There are things you can never break through as a one-man riot squad. In God”s economy, there is nothing like a self-made man. In the maturing process, we move from dependence to independence and then to inter-dependence! We need others as much as they need us! A healthy relationship is not a dependent or independent one but an inter-dependent one. Daniel had his own company in his consecration and prayers (Dan. 1:11-16; 2:13-18). When Peter and John were released, they went to their own company, and reported all that happened to them. The Bible says when they heard, they all raised their voice to God in one accord in prayers (Acts 4:23-24). Paul left Titus in Crete, so that he should set in order the things that are lacking and appoint elders in every city (Titus 1:5). Take note that Titus was to appoint ‘elders” and not an ‘elder”. Team leadership is the key because where one is weak; the strength of others can make it up. In a one-man leadership scenario, the organisation will rise or fall on the one man. Jesus had twelve disciples, He also had the seventy. He never sent them out in ones, but in twos! One shall put a thousand to flight and two shall put ten thousand to flight. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says “two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour”.
