Bible Quotes

Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.”
(Genesis 11:1-4) ESV 

So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!
(Psalm 133:1) ESV 

Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?
(Amos 3:3) ESV 

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, ...
(Philippians 2:1-30) ESV 

Inspirational Quotes from Famous People

Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.
--Franklin D. Roosevelt – American President 1882-1945

Cooperation and the Bible

Paul uses the image of the human body as an example of how different parts work together for the good of the whole. Each part is important and necessary. He develops this image in 1 Corinthians 12:12-31.

Jesus chooses a team to work with - see the stories of the calling of the disciples at the beginning of the gospels. Each disciple is very different but all need to cooperate to share the good news of the kingdom of God with others.

Nehemiah in the Old Testament led his team of all ages to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem on the return from exile. Their cooperation won the day against hostility and fear.

In his letters, Paul recognises that he needs others to get God's work done - for example, one person sows, another waters, but God gives the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6).

It was teams that led the first Christian churches, first in Jerusalem where deacons were appointed (Acts 6) and in Antioch (Acts 13).

Note the story of the cooperation that became confusion in the tower of Babel in Genesis 11.

In the beginning, God made our world and chose to share it, enlisting our cooperation as good stewards to look after it (Genesis 1).5
