November 19, 2012 - Acknowledge Your Teammates

Last week I tried to encourage each of us to choose our “teammates” wisely.  This week with Thanksgiving just a few days away I want to ask if you are thankful for your teammates. If so do you show it?

The Scriptures are clear about the benefits of the “teammate” being there to help you when you fall. They are clear about the benefits and strength of having multiple guys that have the same goals and encourage you.  Just check out Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Maybe this week you need to send some “thank you’s” to those that have your back.

John Wooden used to remind his players to point at, wink at, something to acknowledge a teammate that had made a good pass to them… He said he would inevitably be asked, “But Coach, what if he’s not looking?” To which Wooden would simply reply, “He will be.”

People need to know they are appreciated. Don’t miss a chance this week to do so…
