“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”
“Also, if two lie down together, thy will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, NIV)
What kind of team member are you? We take pride in being the best individuals. We get jealous of other people. We compete. We throw people under the bus. We leave people hanging. Do you value teamwork?
Some of the best individuals make the worst teammates. And some people who are not the best individuals make the best teammates because they are “pro-teamwork.”
A lot of times the framework of teamwork collapses because someone is not content being anything less than the team captain. But being a good team player includes treasuring teamwork even when you are not the team captain. Sometimes good teamwork is “you are doing the majority of the work” while others do very little. But that’s teamwork! Do you value teamwork???
It’s not always 50-50. But do you value teamwork??? There is power in teamwork. God loves teamwork. There’s more to life than you. More to life than me. Teamwork is bigger than me. It’s a privilege to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
What good is a teacher without students? Students without a teacher? But together they make school.
The quarterback can’t throw a pass if no one blocks for him. And if he throws a pretty pass, it’s useless if no one is there to catch it. When one person scores a touchdown, the team scored. “Touchdown Broncos. The Broncos are now 6-0.”
