The Plover and the Crocodile

The Egyptian plover bird and the native crocodile have an symbiotic relationship.  The crocodile allows the plover access to its body because the bird preys on parasites that are harmful to the crocodile.  In return, the crocodile provides safety for the plover since a predator would dare to attack the bird, and risk being attacked by the crocodile.

Apart from one another, the plover and the crocodile may die due to the lack of protection that they provide to one another.  But, together they help each other stay alive and thrive. The same can be true for us, if we give, work, pray, and worship together, we can accomplish more than each of us giving, working, praying, and worshiping alone.

Think about it.
