Not Wanting Others to Work Alone

To read the Bible in a year, read Judges 8 and 9.
Gideon with his men fought Midianites, but one tribe did not like being left out, “Now the men of Ephraim said to him, ‘Why have you done this to us by not calling us when you went to fight with the Midianites?’ And they reprimanded him sharply” (Judges 8:1). They wanted to be involved in fighting against an enemy who had oppressed them. They were even angry with Gideon for not including them!
If a good work is going on and no one let you know, are you bothered or are you happy not to be involved?
