Ang dalawa ay mabuti kaysa isa; mas marami ang bunga ng anumang gagawin nila. Kapag nabuwal ang isa, maitatayo siya ng kanyang kasama. Kawawa ang nag-iisa sapagkat walang tutulong sa kanya kapag siya ay nabuwal.

Ang Mangangaral 4:910

Alam n’yo ba kung saan nagmula ang ice cream cone? Noong August 1904 sa isang event sa Missouri, Charles E. Menches was selling and serving ice cream in saucers. Napakainit kaya ang lakas ng benta at naubusan siya ng malinis na saucer. Nagkataon naman, ang katabi niyang seller ay isang taga-Syria na si Ernest Hamwi. Nagtitinda naman siya ng zalabia, a wafer-like pastry na niluluto sa waffle maker. Kinausap ni Charles si Ernest. Habang mainit at malambot pa ang zalabia, Ernest shaped it into a cone na pinuno naman ni Charles ng ice cream, saka inabot sa customer. Ayun, success!

Buti na lang, Charles was humble enough to seek help at si Ernest naman, willing tumulong. May kasabihan, One finger cannot lift a pebble.Nilikha tayo ni Lord para makipag-cooperate, mag-collaborate at maki-partner sa iba para matupad ang kalooban Niya. Nilikha rin tayo para matuto sa isa’t isa. Sa Bible, maraming example ng together is better,katulad ni David and Jonathan, Elijah and the widow, Elisha and the Shunammite woman. Minsan, Jesus sent His disciples on a mission at may buddy system sila, two by two. Siguradong nakadagdag tapang ang humayo ng may kasama. Similarly, during the early stages of apostle Paul’s journey, nakilala niya si Barnabas. Itinakda ni Lord ang kanilang friendship. Na-encourage ni Barnabas si Paul at madalas silang nagkasama sa mga mission trip. At that time, Barnabas had no idea na si Paul pala ang magiging author ng napakaraming sulat sa New Testament! 

Tinatawag ka bang makipag-cooperate? O baka naman kailangan mo ng katuwang. Ayon sa Ecclesiastes 4:910, collaboration leads to more productivity at sa oras na may kakulangan ang isa, ito ay napupunan ng kalakasan ng iba. Together is, indeed, better.
