In the history of mankind, not one thing of great significance was done by a lone individual, except Jesus of course. Great things are accomplished by multitudes of people using their gifts and talents to accomplish a singular goal. In fact, there is almost nothing that can’t be accomplished when people come together in a unified and dedicated spirit.
Things my grandparents thought to be impossible are now commonplace because people believed in a vision of greatness and worked hard to achieve it. Michael Jordan is quoted as saying, “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.”
So, we must ask the question, “What do I want?” Do I want to be a star on a team that wins some games, or do I want to play as a team and win the title of champion? In Genesis chapter 11 we see the power that unity can have with ordinary people. (Genesis 11:5-6 “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the Lord said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them’”.)
Although the people in this passage were misguided, it shows us the power of acting as one. We were created to be connected with one another and when we work in unity with one heart, one mission, and one vision, we can do more than we could ever imagine.
