TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE... SYNERGISM, Build a bridge!

FOCUS ON UNITY or UNITY AS A GOAL

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

I. SYNERGISM --- TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE...

CAN WE ACKNOWLEDGE A SIMPLE TRUTH FOUND IN ECCLESIATES?

A. We are better together than we are seperated...

Eccles. 4:6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

B. WHAT IF I FALL?

Eccles. 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

C. There is power and strength in unity and binding together.

Eccles. 4:12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

D. SYNERGISM: THE COMBINED EFFECT EXCEEDS THE SUM TOTAL OF THE

INDIVIDUAL...

E. One horse can pull 700 pounds --- another horse can pull 500 pounds...

as a team of horses they can pull how much...???

Logic will answer 1,200 pounds... this is not true...

TEAMED TOGETHER THE TWO HORSES CAN PULL 1,900 POUNDS...

The team can pull 700 more pounds together than they can as individuals?

WHY?

F. TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE...

God made people to be social.

Man is never an ISLAND TO HIMSELF...

G. We all need:

1. SOMEONE TO LOVE ... SOMEONE TO LOVE US

2. SOMEONE TO LISTEN ... SOMEONE TO TALK TO...

3. IF WE FALL WE NEED A FRIEND TO HELP US GET UP...

4. WE NEED DIVINE COMPANIONSHIP AS WELL AS HUMAN COMPANIONSHIP...

H. We must learn to WORK together and help each other.

TEAM --- Together Each Accomplishes More ... team...

I. I can’t proof read my own writing? I will read my work the way I thought I wrote it. I need another set of eyes to see more clearly.

II. A COVENANT IS A CONTRACT OF TWO PARTIES COMING TOGETHER

IN AGREEMENT. YOUR PART... MY PART ... OUR PART ... GOD’S PART...

A. I WANT US TO WALK THE LAST MILE TOGETHER...

CAN WE HAVE A MEETING OF THE MINDS...

KJV

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

NIV

Amos 3:3 Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?

B. MATH HAS A UNITY LAW or IDENTITY LAW:

The number one ... the factor that leaves unchanged the quantity on which

it operates.

C. UNITY:

Parts coming together as a whole---

State of being undivided;

Having oneness;

A condition of harmony... accord ...

Like mindedness...

Agreement ... mutual understanding...

D. THERE IS UNITY IN HEAVEN:

Deut. 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:

III. A MARRIAGE IS A COVENANT BETWEEN A MAN --- A WOMAN --- AND GOD...

WILL WE AGREE WITH GOD’S DESIGNS? A GOOD HOME OPERATES WITHIN

THE BOUNDS OF UNITY...

A. THERE CAN BE A GOD CONEVANT POWER WITHIN THE HOME...

Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

B. GOD’S PERFECT PLAN FOR THE FAMILY IS TO HELP, SUPPORT, LEARN, LEAN

AND LOVE... IN SWEET UNITY.

Genesis 2:18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
