I've always liked the story of Deborah and Barak because ... well ... Deborah's a girl. :) But putting that aside, I like this story because It reinforces the importance of working together with fellow Christ-followers. Judges 4:1-14 shows us that working together has its benefits--keeping each other accountable, encouraging one another, getting things done. Having like-minded people around you is a good thing when you're a Christian whose desire is to serve the Lord.
So what are some things you can do to get more involved with others as you're working for the Lord? If you're not already, how can you be part of a Christian “support” team? Tami W.
