I had this post about seed sowing written up and ready to go, and as I began to transfer it over onto the computer I got turned into another direction the words “teamwork” just wouldn’t leave me alone. I began to ask God why teamwork, and what is it that you want me to write about. Well, in 1 Corinthians 3:6 it says ” I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.
I immediately fell in love with this scripture because it involved teamwork like the saying goes there is no “I” in “team”. If teamwork makes the dream work, then why lack the possibility of coming together. I began to think of how I use to be always trying to do things on my own when God provides others’ and himself to assist us. Why don’t we use the tools that are handed to us? Is it because our pride gets in the way or is it because we want to get all the praise for ourselves. Well, whatever the case maybe I know for sure two heads are better than one. When two or more people can come together and be effective amazing things will unfold in relationships, businesses and in ministry.
We all have a purpose in life and we want to see our purpose fulfilled. If we work hard we can make it, but when we fall who is there to help catch you because let’s face it no one is perfect and we all need help in some area of our life. Even the smartest person in the world needs help to make his/her dream happen. We can’t continue to let ourselves get in the way or it will pull us down and keep us there.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, it reminds us to be helpers to one another, not be helpers to whom you choose. We have to look at things in God’s view and remove our blinders that are hindering us and see things God’s way. Every industry needs a team, every dream needs someone to back them up. So when God send a person your way, don’t turn them away. Pray about it and you never know it may be the support you needed.
