Supercharge your teamwork with these powerful teamwork quotes! Teamwork is God’s idea, and people simply don’t function well in isolation. The need for others is a theme that runs throughout Scripture:
- God creates Eve so that Adam won’t be alone.
- Jesus handpicks His disciples.
- And the Apostle Paul encourages believers to not forsake their fellowship.
But teaming up isn’t always easy. People are messy, and as a result, teamwork involves two dangers.
- First, there is the danger of vulnerability. Teamwork requires that we allow others into our messy lives.
- Second, there is the danger of inviting others (with messes of their own) to do life with us.
A Year of Teamwork
This is my year of teamwork. Slowly but surely, I’m learning to share my life with others while simultaneously discovering how to encourage those around me.
It’s both a learning experience and a balancing act. But this is nothing new. Acts 15:39 describes a disagreement between Barnabus and Paul that became so heated, the two parted ways. The argument was over a young man named John-Mark–the same man who would eventually write the Gospel of Mark. Barnabas wanted to take Mark with them, and Paul did not. Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. Later in his life, Paul asks for Mark to join him, stating that Mark is useful in the ministry (2 Timothy 4:11). Apparent, the two had resolved their issues and were able to team-up once again.
Learning to partner with others is a process. Teamwork comes with a learning curve. So, if you find yourself discouraged or thinking, “I’ve tried teamwork in the past, and it didn’t work,” don’t give up. Instead, understand that teamwork is a skill that is refined with practice.
