Life, Argo & Lessons in Working Together

Argo is one of my favorite movies I’ve seen in a while. The story of two countries coming together to help in a single cause, I find very inspiring. I even knew the ending and I was still nervous!

But this great story could have gone the other way. Instead of six U.S. employees being saved, we could have heard a very different story.


If no one had stepped up to help.

If the U.S. and Canada did not cooperate together to make this happen.

If disagreements had become bigger than the objective at hand.

Two countries who don’t always see eye to eye on issues, came together for one single cause…preservation of life.

We, in the Church, can learn a few lessons here:

1. We can accomplish so much more working together than we can alone.

2. Great accomplishments are often accompanied by great risk.

3. We will always find things to disagree about (politically, religiously, personally), but there is one thing we can always agree on…life.

Sometime, we as Christ-Followers, get so wrapped up in ministries and agendas that we forget what is really most important…life.

Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full.”

Where, as God’s people, can we work together better so that others might have life?
