Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story. (Casey Stengel, 20th century major league baseball Hall of Fame manager)

Stengel’s observation about players reveals an important principle about teamwork. We saw it demonstrated in the recent Olympics where athletes of great talent were assembled and organized to work together to achieve the desired goal for their country. It’s great lesson for us to apply to our working together with our colleagues in any worthy endeavor.

Striving together as one (Philippians 1:27).
