Psalm 133:1

How would you describe the sense of team unity experienced by this team?  What are the benefits that accompany a team with great unity versus a team that is full of strife, contention and selfish attitudes?

Today’s scripture describes such unity in Psalm 133 and verse 1.  There we read, “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!”  Simple, huh?  The psalmist says that unity produces an atmosphere that is good and pleasant.  It’s simple to describe, but harder to produce.

Team unity is good, leading to the best possible performance from everyone related to the team.  Unity brings out the best in each player, coach, trainer, equipment manager, etc…

Team unity is pleasant, smoothing out every potential conflict and contention.  Every team is made up of vastly different people.  It’s supposed to be that way.  Team unity allows us to maintain a focus on our common goals, aspirations and values.  That makes the living together pleasant.

In today’s competition, let great team unity produce an atmosphere of goodness and pleasance.  Strive together to see each teammate compete to his highest capacity.  Keep your focus on unifying words and actions that make the whole process pleasant for everyone concerned.  Compete in unified way and you’ll be unstoppable.
