Teamwork is defined as “cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group or person acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause.” (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/teamwork)
As Christians, our teamwork is the united effort we make in working toward the same goal – heaven. Having the same goal results in building support for each other and finding strength. In 1 Corinthians 12, the apostle Paul speaks of the church as a body, which supports one another. In supporting one another, we find strength and growth. Remember Ephesians 4.1-16?
The following illustration allows one to see how combined efforts do more than what we first consider,
“At a state fair there was an event where horses were being hitched to wagons to see which horse could pull the most weight. Two horses pulled 9,000 pounds. They then hitched these two strongest horses together on the same wagon. The horses didn’t pull 18,000 pounds – a mere doubling of their individual efforts. Instead, together, in true teamwork, they pulled 35,000 pounds.” Source: http://trubyachievements.com/article-teamwork.html
Are you strengthening the team as we seeking heaven together?
Let us encourage one another more and more each day (Hebrews 3.13).
