It’s a hot, hot Monday afternoon. Please, Lord, send our dry country the rain we need.
Blogging hasn’t been something I’ve done. I had a blog site once, but I kept forgetting to post stuff to it. That experience helped me in a way. I’m only ever gonna “blog” when I have something I want to say!
Here’s a list of the things that make a good partner, as Paul wrote them in his letter to the Philippians. Remember, Paul was the human author, but the Holy Spirit spoke through him to us all.
A good partner (Timothy, Epaphroditus, Clement):
- Cheers you with a good report
- Is “others-focused”‘
- Sticks with you through thick and thin
- Is someone in whom you have real confidence
- Is a true brother
- Is a co-worker
- Is a fellow soldier
- Is worthy of honor
- Is a risk-taker
A good partner is a source of joy and a reward. So much of this can relate to marriage. And to business. And to the fellowship in the church. In fact, Christians ought to be good partners in all their relationships.
What can you do this week that will honor and bless your partners? How have you served as an unselfish, unswerving, brother, soldier and friend?
Blessings on you,
