Synergy: a mutually advantageous conjunction or compatibility of distinct business participants or elements (such as resources or efforts). Or, in common English, the increased effectiveness that results when two or more people or businesses work together.
If I rake leaves on my lawn by myself, it takes me four hours. If someone else rakes their yard alone, it’ll take them four hours. If the two of us rake my yard together, then their yard together, it will take us four hours—but probably less—to finish both.
When people work together, they get farther than when they work alone. The combined passion, enthusiasm, and brainstorming skills provide added energy towards completion.
My dear sister-in-law and her husband are working towards adopting a precious baby into their family—a true picture of how much Christ loves the church, and also a classic example of how nothing good ever comes easy. They’re working industriously to raise the needed funds: $34,000. Yep, that’s a lot of zeros.
Let’s use synergy to help them give a child a home. Visit their site,
give them anything you can,
and share this post. Let’s show my sister-in-law and her husband the support we’d all want shown for us.
