Team Work
(By Steve Ousley)


Team work is one of the most important factors we can teach our kids and learn ourselves in life. After all, Christianity, and life really, are team sports. The key to success is knowing how to work with others. None of us know it all. Admitting we don’t know it all is sometimes difficult to do, but the value in learning with and from the people around us, far outweighs the value of thinking we know it all. I can’t count the number of times I had a problem that I simply could not figure out. I would go over it 1,000 times, but still no solution. Finally, my frustration would be bigger than my pride. I would reach out, sit down with a friend, explain my problem, and they would give me a solution instantly. Clearly, I do not know it all, but sometimes my pride prevents me from benefitting from the value of the people around me.
Pride and selfishness will always keep a team from being successful. A team can’t function properly with pride. Jesus said to everyone, even leaders, to lay aside pride and live to serve others. The Apostle Paul understood the value of working together as a team. He emphasized teamwork because he knew that we could only reach our goals through mutual effort. In his letter to the Philippian church, he passed on advice about successful living:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Philippians 2:3-4).
When I read that, it seems so easy, but I know I must remain intentional each day to ensure that I am not letting pride creep into my life and that I continue to find the value in those around me. A couple sayings jump out at me when thinking about this topic:
“God > Me” What a great way to look at life. More of God and less of me.
“He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:30”

“There is no “I” in “TEAM” also seems to fit here. God honors unselfishness. It is the only attitude that will make us winners in the end.
I challenge you this week to be a team player. Build those around you up and always strive for: “God > Me”
