TITLE: WORK WITH OTHER PEOPLE
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
ACTS 15:39 ” And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed to Cyprus;”
As long as you come from different backgrounds, there would be disagreements, even people from the same womb do quarrel, Or did you not hear about, Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau?
Now Paul and Barnabas were supposed to work as a team from the scripture we read. Actually, it was God Himself who instructed that both of them be singled out for the work He wants them to do.
Along the line, they had an issue to deal with and it ended in separation.
Do you now say that you won’t work with people to avoid conflicts? Some people don’t want to have problems with anyone, so they choose to work alone.
God tried working with Adam, that didn’t work. He didn’t now stop there. He went ahead to look for another option. He worked with Jesus and it worked.
You can work alone for a while, as you’re seriously looking forward to working with someone else, but never be comfortable or feel like a hero or heroine working alone.
When you do everything alone, it most times shows you don’t have relationship skills. It also shows you are selfish and do not love impacting other lives. When people work with you, they get a chance to grow with you.
Not working with other people is also a sign of mediocrity.
Jesus raised the twelve. It was a great team. Judas who betrayed Him was in that team, still, look at the massive spreading of the gospel that was made possible because of the other eleven that were steadfast.
You must get a team.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
LORD, HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND PEOPLE MANAGEMENT. I RECEIVE GRACE TO WORK WITH AND IMPACT OTHERS IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
