The Importance of “TEAM.”

Baseball team, Football team, Basketball team, Lacrosse team, hockey team, soccer team….team, team, team.  We’ve heard it since our little league team, even in the neighborhood with “pick-up teams.”  Even when we watch great golf, tennis, and yes NASCAR athletes there is a team helping them be the best.  Let’s consider some “team” quotes by some famous team sports personalities:

“There is no such thing as a self-made man. You will reach your goals only with the help of others.”  George Shinn (owner of Charlotte Hornets basketball team)

“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”   Vince Lombardi (1913-1970), football coach for the NFL  

“The strength of the team is each individual member…the strength of each member is the team.”  Coach Phil Jackson, Chicago Bulls

Jesus provided us with a “team” approach model, His team was called “the disciples.”  If God has been speaking to your heart about a Clean Heart issue and you have been trying to deal with it on your own, ask yourself, “How are you doing?  What is your win – loss record?  As tough as it may be, consider joining the team.  A team with the goal of living with integrity in this sexualized world…let’s live with a Clean Heart.
