The Vision of "I"

Updated: Jul 17, 2023

“There is no I in team,” What’s the big deal with working by myself vs. working with a team? It’s my idea, and I want all the profits, so I don’t see the big deal! Exactly “you” don’t see the big deal! How much more is accomplished if you take your selfish hands off it and allow others to come alongside you, and both or all of you win? Think about a shift from $500 a project to $500,000 a project. Them some good odds; what’s the difference? You are no longer serving yourself. Bring others alongside you that God sends to benefit you and your family and theirs. I like those odds.

Jesus Christ had a team of twelve (disciples); in that twelve, he still had an inner group of three (Peter, John, and James). So, if Jesus Christ, our savior, had a team, why wouldn’t his children and followers do likewise? What’s the point I am trying to make? Don’t be self-serving, be a servant to others. Instead of coming in expecting, with your hands out to receive, put those same hands and arms out, ready to serve. Philippians 2:4 TPT Abandon every display of selfishness. Possess a greater concern for what matters to others instead of your interests.

This idea may hit more closely home to those who have children. You serve your children; you model in the home and out the home of service in front of them; they notice quietly, maybe commenting here or there or nothing at all. You are unconsciously teaching your children how to serve. Take all those moments when you served your children; they graciously accepted it and may have offered a thank you. The greatest reward your children can give you in return is to go and do likewise. Serve inside and outside the home pleases not only parents but God.

Now that your vision has turned from I to we or even us, you are no longer alone! Service to others is one of the most important gifts you can give. Matthew 20:28 CSB just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Who is being served by your purpose of opportunities today? How many will be blessed and benefited because of your purpose and “vision of many” today?

Living, in, on, and for purpose, are you?
