Some thoughts on team building:
Question - do the people around you feel like they are working WITH you or FOR you??
If they feel like they are working FOR you here are some possible outcomes;
They are an employee and not a partner.
Their productivity will be par and not excellent.
They will feel used and not appreciated.
Their vision will be short-sighted and not long-sighted.
They will discourage others to get involved.
If they feel like they are working WITH you here are some possible outcomes:
They will be long term ministry/ life co-workers.
Their loyalty will endure through the most difficult of times.
Their leadership capacity will exceed your own.
Your legacy will be people and not projects.
They will feel they belong and the Kingdom will grow.

Genesis 3:8 tells us that Adam and Eve, “heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day…” God’s heart longed for fellowship with them. God’s heart still longs for us. He longs for us to seek out times to fellowship with Him.
How do you see Him? How do you see His heart? How do you hear His voice? How do you experience His love, comfort, and healing? Let this be the season for a renewal of your daily times of sweet fellowship with God through prayer and through reading His Word.
“How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you? Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy, a bliss inside that keeps me singing. I can never thank you enough.” (Psalm 30:12 The Passion Translation)
