And we know that God causes all things to work together
for good to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose.
Teams work together to get things done quicker. However, each team member has their own duties, so that the team can be more efficient.
Take a hockey team for instance, if everyone wanted to be the goalie, you wouldn’t have anyone on the ice, playing either offensively or defensively. If everyone wanted to be a defenseman, there would be fights rather goals being made. Hence, there is also a purpose for the penalty box.
Success of one person also takes a team of people who know what they’re suppose to be doing. That person’s purpose is to ask others if they can help and delegate what they want from them. If those that are helping don’t know what they’re suppose to be doing, success will not come.
Failures are apart of success. It causes us to learn what works and doesn’t. It forces the person who is searching for success to examine each part, each person in the ‘game’ and either decide to ‘cut’ them from the team or bring on other teammates. It forces the person to examine which game plan to use.
Each time they play, the other team has different strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, the person looking to be successful has to adjust, hence learning from past mistakes.
If we know what our purpose is; we work towards glorifying God; and, know that it’s Him who works everything out, success, whether easy or sweaty, will come.
