Commit yourself to projects; dedicate yourself to people.
There’s nothing wrong with projects, but projects never accomplished anything, because people do the projects. Keep that in mind when you begin your next project. Your performance is important, and it’s important that you commit yourself to giving your best effort. But the people you involve are even more important.
In today’s project-driven culture, you are wise to bring other people–with their diverse talents and gifts–into your projects. It’s called teamwork. Whether you work in a business, a factory, a classroom, or a church, you need to recognize that teams–where people with complementary skills and passions work together for the good of the organization–are a must.
This is no new concept. God has already said in His word: “Now all of you together are Christ’s body” (1 Corinthians 12:27).
We belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others. Romans 12:5
