One Direction

We had an outside work day at Northridge this morning and had about 30 people knock out a
tremendous amount of work in a short period of time. As we were working one of my friends commented, "It's amazing what you can get done when you have a group of people focused on the same purpose." While it's not the most profound thing I have ever heard, it is most certainly true. It applies to work crews, athletic teams, bands, the cast in a play, a restaurant staff, and a short term missions team. Our combined energy and focus will enable us to efficiently accomplish more than if we worked independently.

While we may accept it as truth, we still struggle to put it into reality. There has to be intentional effort to align ourselves under one purpose and find a way to work together. Imagine the differences in our churches, families, and communities if we would put this into practice. If we can humble ourselves to make it work we'll find fulfillment in the journey and in our results.
