Power of Unity: Many a Mickle Makes a Muckle

The Church of God in Cape Town, South Africa


The members of the Church of God in Cape Town carried out a cleanup campaign. We were organized into four groups to meticulously clean up each allocated area.

When the time to finish the cleanup came, all the members gathered. A truck went around the cleaned up areas to collect bags of trash of the day. It was a very large pile of trash.

“Did we clean up this much just within two hours?” “It’s so much! It looks like we’ve cleaned up the entire city.”

All the members were startled at the numerous bags of trash.

‘What difference could our cleanup possibly make?’

The thought we had before the cleanup changed completely. Individual efforts may be weak, but when we work together, we can achieve great things. The same goes true for accomplishing the gospel mission. There is a saying, “Many a mickle makes a muckle.” When we work in unity with our brothers and sisters, we can accomplish any great goal easily.
