“That the leaders took the lead in Israel, that the people offered themselves willingly, bless the Lord! (Judges 5:2 ESV)
1. Team Leaders take the lead
The first reason teams succeed is leaders take the lead. They are not passively waiting for permission to lead. They are enthusiastic and ready to lead. They are not unassuming lacking in zeal. They are looking for opportunities to do great things.
2. Team Members offer themselves willingly
The second reason teams succeed is people willingly follow. Teams are not necessarily successful because of leaders. They succeed because people are willing to follow and get the job done.
Unfortunately, people do not always follow even when the leaders take the lead. They are some times critical of leaders. They let jealousy and selfish ambition get in the way of success. That’s why this third key is vital to the overall success of the team
3. God Saves the Day
We must never leave God out of the equation when it comes to achieving success as a team. Psalm 127:1 says, “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.” The Lord gives success in everything we do. What was true for Those addressed in this Psalm is true for us today.
Most team leaders and team members leave God completely out of their work. They believe they alone control their success. However, those with a biblical understanding approach their roles either as team leaders or members knowing God is personally involved with their work and He will save the day.
