A friend of mine says “It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit.” So true…
You’ll notice that I throw around the “we” word a lot. I often get asked “who is the we” you’re referring to? Well, it’s whoever it is…… (Profound, I know). But the “we” or the team, changes depending on what it is we’re doing. I honestly believe that anyone who is working in the name of Jesus and loving others, is on the same team that I’m on.
And….we (all of us) stand on the shoulders of others who have gone before us. Any type of “we” has never done anything on their own. Acknowledging that is simply honest humility.
On the practical side, I never fly anywhere alone. I don’t stay in hotels alone. I typically stay in homes. I do this for two reasons: accountability and the chance to have some good mentoring time with a friend (both him mentoring me and hopefully the other way as well).
