Day 20 – Cooperate

Etymology – (also co-operate, “to act or operate jointly with another or others to the same end,” c. 1600, from Late Latin cooperatus, past participle of cooperari “to work together with,” from assimilated form of com “with, together” (see com-) + operari “to work,” from PIE root *op- “to work, produce in abundance.” Cooperator “fellow worker, associate” is attested from early 15c. Related: Cooperated; cooperating.)

1 Corinthians 3:9

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

Selah – Reflect on the call to cooperate in God’s service in the Kingdom of God. “For we are co-workers, co-laborers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”

Wisdom Nugget – As co-laborers in God’s service, our cooperation magnifies His work in and through us.  Are you willing to be a lowly left tow knuckle to your fellow brother or sister?  How well do you cooperate with others during opportunities to serve?
