Farmers are notorious for helping each other when times get tough. One North Dakota community of farmers helped one of their own after he suffered a heart attack and also had broken machinery. As a group, they were able to harvest his entire crop in under seven hours. This is what it looks like to withhold the grumbling and work together (Joshua Bote, “North Dakota Community Rallies to Help Farmer Harvest Crops after Heart Attack,” USA Today, September 15, 2020, https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/09/15/north-dakota-community-helps-farmer-harvest-crops-after-heart-attack/5810936002/). In most businesses, company owners work against one another in an effort to gain more customers and make the most money. Farmers understand the need to work together and to help out in times of stress. Too often in life, it can feel like we are working against another, vying for positions of authority or popularity. Yet God commands us to work together.
