I was just on twitter looking at the posts from the missional church planting folks I follow and Brad Lomenick had this tweet: “Some thoughts on Philippians 2 and application to teamwork. http://tinyurl.com/cpfbr3” so I clicked on the link and found his list. I wish that all of the teams I work on would be like this….I wish I could be like this all the time.
1. Be like-minded.
2. Be loving
3. Be united
4. Be focused (on one purpose)
5. Be selfless
6. Be humble
7. Look out for others before yourself
8. Be Christ-like
The verses he made the list from are these:
“make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 2:2-5, NRSV).
