And yes, I am a Denver Bronco fan — and a Peyton Manning fan too. And, in an exercise of full disclosure, I am also thrilled that Tim Tebow is getting another shot at the NFL.
But despite the beginning of this blog, today is not about football. Nope. Today’s post is about teams and about being a game changer. Teams happen all sorts of places besides sports fields. And being a game changer can happen anywhere too.
Families are teams. Friends can become teams. There are ministry teams and work teams and we’re-pursuing-the-same-dream together teams.
I love when a team:
- is led by a strong leader — but not a dictator
- has a “one for all, all for one” mentality
- allows each member to discover both their weaknesses and their strengths — growing out of former and developing the latter
And game changing? You never know when or how a game might change … or who might change the balance of power. My husband often tells me that more points are scored in the last two minutes of a football game than all the time before thatany other two-minute segment of the game. It’s amazing the power of a ticking clock, isn’t it? And there’s also something to be said about never giving up . . . and never thinking you won’t be the one who will change things. We’ve all seen a defensive player intercept a pass and run for a game-winning touchdown, right?
In Your Words: Who is on your team — and whose team are you on? When was the last time you were a game changer? (And just for fun: What’s your favorite football team?)
