Now these are the heads of the mighty men whom David had, who gave him strong support…according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel. 1 Chronicles 11:10
The Camaraderie of a Team
The mighty men had an impressive repertoire of skills. They were a fierce and powerful lot with a reputation for getting the job done. First Chronicles eleven presents beguiling tales of bravery and massive force. What support these men provided for David! God knew that David was going to go through some rough years and He surrounded him with a team.
Although I do not play team sports, I too have team camaraderie. God has blessed me with wonderful friends. I think back to the difficult times in my life. Every single occasion includes an encouraging friend. These friends provided meaningful support when I needed it the most. I hope that I have offered them the same support.
The friendships we develop here on earth are significant. God wants us to have rapport with others. As believers, we are on His team. Instead of swords and arrows, we wield love and encouragement. Take stock of your team today and share Jesus with your comrades.
