Classic Duo

thought of day header

For Saturday April 22, 2023

Ecclesiastes 4:9
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.

In Hollywood history there have been but a handful of couples who were so perfectly paired that they created their own brand of magic for the silver screen. For some of us, this movie magic is indelibly etched on our memories. Couples such as Fred and Ginger, Bogey and Bacall, and Lucy and Desi will live on in the classic films and TV shows that made them famous.

Fortunately for us, there was another couple who left a lasting legacy. Aquila and Priscilla were two people who were continually present throughout several chapters of the New Testament and became a wonderful example of a husband-wife mentoring team. They worked together to contribute to the body of Christ, leaving us an example of how married couples can greatly impact just about anyone God leads them to (Acts 18).

If you are married, the Lord may use you and your spouse in mighty ways to minister to people, whether they’re newlyweds, young parents, or struggling singles. Make it your aim to leave a lasting legacy as a classic duo for the Lord. If you don’t have a spouse to minister with, the Lord has still designed you to serve in the context of community. Perhaps there is a friend or family member you can team up with as you labor for the Lord.

Lord, please help my teammates and me to work together
to bless and encourage those around us.
