MORE THAN THE SUM OF THEIR PARTS

I once read the story is told of a horse pulling contest in Canada. The winning horse in the contest pulled 9,000 pounds

The runner up pulled 8,000.

Together you’d expect them to pull 17,000 lbs. but not so! When teamed together, they pulled 30,000 lbs – nearly twice as much.

That’s part of the reason Jesus created the church.
