Team Growth

 It’s my responsibility to encourage others in their relationship with God. The following is an excerpt from a chapter in Alan Jackson’s book Standing Firm.

“True team players understand that it takes the whole group to be successful, and they are grateful when every person fulfils their role. Achieving spiritual strength is also easier to achieve in a group. We each have spiritual gifts and talents and insights that help us mature as individuals but also contribute to the collective maturity of the group. God did not intend for us to “go it alone”, so I’d encourage you to invest yourself in a group of people who are willing to be on your team and encourage others as they are encouraged.”

Alan’s prayer: “ Heavenly Father, teach me more fully what investing in others looks like. Help me to be consistently loving and compassionate, forgiving and encouraging to those around me so that they might be drawn into your light and purposes.” In Jesus’ name. Amen

I had a boss that after each regional phone call would say “that was good stuff!” Alan’s writing is “good stuff”!
