A team is not a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who trust each other. (Mike Linch, baseball coach)
We’ve been reminded again and again that there is no “I” in “team.” Yes, it’s a group, but as Linch points out, it’s a group made up of individuals who trust. Trust is a key word in team sports and in all of life’s productive relationships. Unless we have confidence in those we work/play with, there will be little of value achieved with the “team.”
Paul to the church in Corinth: “. . . I was so sure of your understanding and trust . . . (2 Corinthians 1:15).
