I am a member of the team, and I rely on the team. I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion. (Mia Hamm, USA women’s soccer star)

Tom Wilson, another professional athlete put it this way, “Many of us are more capable than some of us . . . but none of us is as capable as all of us.” Many corporations and organizations are organizing their employees into various teams. Working as a cooperative team member, rather than as an individual, will achieve much more for the team and for the larger group.

We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other (Romans 12:5).

Yes, there are many parts, but only one body (1 Corinthians 12:20).
