Do you feel as if you have to do this on your own? Frustration at work. Struggle at home. Busyness and distraction dominate your life. How can you walk the path if you can’t even keep your head above water?
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
- African proverb
I think we try to do both. We want to go fast, so we go it alone. The problem is, when it all seems too much, and we feel lost and overwhelmed, we have no one to point us back to the old paths where we can find rest for our souls (Jer. 6:16).
Think about the men in your life. Who points you to God? Who speaks life into you? Your brothers in arms are equipped by God to fight this battle with you. They are likely the very men reading this along with you…
Find like-hearted kings living in the same direction. Sign treaties. When one kingdom is at war, both are at war.
- Dan Allender
You need a battle buddy to navigate life with. Who are these men for you?
