September 10 is Swap Ideas Day.
It is a day to share thoughts, trade/barter goods, exchange ideas, share and hear opinions and discuss viewpoints with family members, friends, co-workers, classmates and -maybe even- strangers.
This unofficial holiday celebrates teamwork, recognizing that we are better as a community who collaborates!
How do God’s people (the church) Celebrate?
- What does the Bible say about working together and swapping ideas?
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! -Ecclesiastes 4:9
- Have a problem or challenge? Talk to a couple of people you trust to get their advice about how to solve the problem. Two heads are better than one!
- Have an idea? Get feedback and wisdom from someone else, so your good idea can become great!
Did You Know…
…that the use of the word swap originated in the 13th century? Then swap was used to refer to the sound of hitting. In the 16th century, the word came about to mean exchange, because people used to hit their hands together to indicate that they had come to an agreement.
Hope you can find some ways to swap ideas and have fun collaborating together. That is what community is all about, and God created people to work together, live together, and care for each other.
Have a fun week! God loves you.
