Leadership Promises - Petty Differences Prevent Victory

"I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life. Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Leadership Promises - Petty Differences Prevent Victory
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand." Philippians 4:2-5. Paul knew the importance of teamwork, so he encouraged two women who had been quarreling to make peace. Euodia and Syntyche, members of the Philippian church, had created some division by their disharmony. Paul uses them as examples to launch into an entire chapter on peace. He doesn't ask these women to act uniformly, but rather to be of the same mind. The term he uses connotes harmony. Singing in harmony doesn't mean singing in unison.

Players should play different positions on a team. Harmony means their efforts complement the efforts of others, rather than conflict with them.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible
Good day!
