There is no “I” in Team!

Grace at HomeHave you ever heard the saying, “There is NO “I” in TEAM”?

It makes lots of sense, but have you ever thought of it in the context of your family?

“The Family” as a team.  Teams are generally made up of individuals with gifts and talents that contribute to the over all effectiveness of the team.  It requires each individual doing their part, teamwork.

I think many times in a family there is an interal competiveness that exists.  Of course, amoung your children there will be nature tendencies for competiveness.  Most of the time it is your children looking for attention.  I have three boys and the two older ones turn everything into a competition.  Many times we write it off as them just being boys.

Let’s think of the family competition in another way.  What about the husband and wife.  Does your relationship ever feel like your competing?  Do you feel like you working against each other?

I think viewing your family as a team is a healthy way to learn to work and play together, for the whole family as well as husband and wife.  Remember your on the same team!  Start in simple ways.  Look at your home responsiblities as a team effort.  However you divide up the responsiblities at home, find ways to work together.

In His Grip,

Bobby
