The earliest followers of Jesus understood the power of community and growing together in faith. They recognized that some choices were greater than others:
Together is greater than alone.
Generosity is greater than storing up.
And, thriving is greater than survival.
When we choose the greater thing, we can be more aligned with God’s priorities and God’s heart; more aligned with God’s wonderful generosity. Today we consider growth that comes when we choose to invest rather than opt for the quick fix. When we build a solid foundation, we can withstand the trials that will come our way.
