Are you playing your part on the team?

There is a saying that goes Teamwork makes the dream work. Whether we voluntarily join a team or not we are all on a team of some sort. The first team that we all become a part of is our immediate family. When we join the work force we become part of the team of a company. If you worship collectively with a body of believers that is a team. Everyone is expected to share their particular expertise to make sure that the organization remains healthy and grows. What happens to an organization where all members of the team do not contribute? When all of the members of the team do not contribute simply put someone else has to pull their weight! First let's start with the family structure, more than likely everyone has chores or something that they must do so that the family can live the lifestyle they want to live. What happens when the dish washer no longer wants to wash dishes? What happens when the person who does laundry decides that someone else can do it? What happens when one of the breadwinners decides they want to sit down? The family begins to suffer and the house goes in disarray. What kind of church do you have when many of its members want to be pew warmers? You know pew warmers are those who want to have their emotions tickled every Sunday but don't want to be involved in any ministry, won't attend events, and think that an hour and half on Sunday is all that God is owed. When people fail to play their part on the team in church they stifle the gospel and someone else has to not only carry their cross but drag the one of the person who is happily sitting down on the pew. Finally let's talk about the workplace. Have you ever worked in a team at work and the other person does not pull their weight but if someone doesn't pick up the slack everyone suffers? Many of us have and its a horrible feeling to know that they are still being paid yet doing no work! We are all expected to do our parts whatever structure we are in. There will come a time when our work will be examined whether we did our parts or not. Are you one of the team members who sits on the sidelines and complains about how things are done yet you are too lazy and trifling to contribute or are you one of the people who has to pull the weight of the person who has their heels kicked up sitting on the seat of do nothing? Decide today that you will play your part on whatever team you are a member of.
