Proverbial wisdom: we live life together. really.

God put us into life together. Why? Because everyone needs help sometime. Everyone. In India on a relief mission after the 2004 Tsunami, I learned this simple proverb as people helped each other:

Pull thy brother’s boat across, and lo, thine own hath reached the shore.

Life needs more of: “Hey, we’re in this together. This time, let me help you. One day, you’ll get your chance to help me.”
