We all need to be sensitive to the person who can tell us what we don’t want to hear but need to hear.
2 Kings 5:10-13 (KJV)
10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.
11 But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.
12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascs, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.
13 And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?
When a team moves together, it is a sight to behold, and it lifts the entire group. When a team fails to move together, the ripple effects hurt the entire group. Building successful teams is an organizational survival skill. Serving on a team successfully, and helping make the entire team a success, is the job skill that may be the most important one of all.
