Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Biblical Business Principles – Last week we focused on Stories: 2 Sides.  After you listen to both sides of a story, do you apply Biblical Business Principles?


This week we will focus on Teams.  What is a team?  A team can be you and your employees.  If you don’t have employees, a team might be you and other companies you partner with in serving your customers.  A team might even be you and your customer!


Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT


A good definition of a team is two or more people interacting together on a common cause.  If you’re alone, it is not a team.  If you’re two or more people but you’re not interacting together, you’re not a team.  If you’re two or more people interacting together, but not on a common cause; you’re not a team. 


If it is just you and your customer, how are you a team?  The key is working with your customer to solve the customer’s problem.  How do you communicate with your customers that you are working with them on the common cause of resolving their problems?     


Bit of Wisdom                 

 “I also tell you this: If two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:19-20 NLT
