That is just how Paul described Timothy in 1 Thessalonians 3:2. Timothy is "our brother and God's co-worker." If we seek God's goals in our station in life, then we are God's co-worker in raising families, teaching children, studying and working alongside others, feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving, spreading the gospel. God's work is a vast undertaking. He chooses to use many co-workers.
For Reflection: Where may I serve as God's co-worker today? Am I working alone or alongside Jesus?
Let us pray. God, it would help a lot if I could feel you beside me today as I go about my normal activities and any special activities you want me to do. I want to be your co-worker today.
