Sunday Blog: The Ultimate Synergy

Have you ever heard of a person that accomplished something great in life completely by themselves?  The reason you have not is because of the power of "Synergy" which is the 6th habit in Stephen Coveys infamous book "7 Habits of Highly Effective People."   Synergy simply means that people working together can defy human logic and accomplish more than the individuals could working by themselves.

Exodus 11-17 tells about Joshua's great victory against the Amalekites.   

"As long as Moses held up his hands the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.  When Moses's hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it.  Aaron and Hur held his hands up, one on one side and one on the other - so that his hands stayed steady until sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword. Then the Lord said to Moses,  'Write this down on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.'  Moses built an alter and called it 'The Lord is my banner'..."

The lesson from this passage is how much more powerful Synergy can be if God is part of the mix.   Moses, Aaron and Joshua were a powerful force working together, but when you add God to the equation anything is possible.  My main takeaway is to make sure God is a part of your equation if you want to create the Ultimate Synergy.
