Team Building – Part II
By: Rick Boxx
August 8, 2012
The second element the Apostle Peter mentioned for a harmonious team in 1 Peter 3:8 is “loving as brothers.”
One day in 6th grade I was surrounded by an angry group of opposing baseball players. Soon I was on the ground being thrashed by another 6th grader, due to foolish boasting.
Suddenly, I heard a blood curdling scream as my younger brother Terry leaped on the back of my assailer. Even though Terry had no idea why I was being attacked, he jumped into the fray, because he was my brother and he had my back!
Proverbs 17:17 teaches, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”
If you want a harmonious team, remember to love your teammates as a brother who has their back.
Ken Eldred’s Integrated Life
Integration is the key to changing that mindset and thus “redeeming” the vast majority of our time, the hours devoted to work. When our work is a holy calling and a ministry, it’s loaded with spiritual significance. All that time we spend at work has spiritual value. So while balance alone might redeem some hours, integration can redeem far more! Purchase here.
