That which is not in the interest of the hive is not in the interest of the bee. (Marcus Aurelius, 2nd century Roman emperor)

It’s an ancient thought but what a great metaphor it is for the 21st century as well as the 2nd century. Bees and the bee hive are wonderful examples of the way teamwork was meant to be. The hundreds (thousands?) of worker bees cooperate instinctively to provide a single goal: produce honey. There’s no “I” (or “B”) in team.

Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other . . . working together with one mind and purpose (Philippians 2:2).
