There is something powerful called the SURGE OF THE GROUP.
When an individual joins the large mass going in the same direction you have a what scientist call the CRITICAL MASS. (sustaining a chain reaction)
What Biologist call a SWARM – bees can destroy a party, an army of ants can kill a cow – birds can down a 747 jet
What that bible calls a THRONG. – they can defeat a nation, cause walls to tumble and make God come to earth.
Critical mass – swarm – throng is the point where “the group” not the “individual” becomes more important to accomplish a given goal.
A Tipping takes place when ME is replaced with the importance of WE.

How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! 2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. 3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
-Psalm 133:1-3 (niv)
