A Mind to Work

So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work. ~ Nehemiah 4:6

‘Good’ teams work together.  ‘Great’ teams work together for a common purpose.

Many of us like to work alone, but collaborations are powerful.  Remember the tower of Babel? The people built together with the purpose of reaching heaven. God stopped them saying “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.”

God shows up when there is agreement.

Your group may be small or large. But there is power that comes from being on one accord, working for the same purpose. Power and promise arrived in the upper room when the people were of a like mind (Acts 2:1) . Whether it is to bless (Matthew 18:19) or to halt (Genesis 11:9) we can see that God shows up in when there is agreement.

Check your team

Today’s lunch was all about team building. For ninety minutes, we came together, for the same purpose. We left the meeting as a stronger unit, because we went in with the same purpose.

Take a few minutes to see who you are working with. Whether it is collaboration, project or even work or church, be sure that everyone is working towards purpose.

Work together purposely and enjoy your tea!
