Don’t Be an Outlier. Learn To Be Considerate of Others!

Read 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 MSG. Are you a team player? Or are you an outlier?

I know people who hate working alone – they need the creative spark of a team around them to function at their best. I’ve known others who like to do everything alone and will complain if others help that they don’t do the job to the same standard they do it to.

The Bible makes it clear that God’s work is meant to be done together. That’s why it holds so much teaching about what we should do towards “one another”.

In 1 Corinthians, Paul writes to a rather difficult church that they should “learn to be considerate of one another” (1 Corinthians 1:10 MSG). Consideration is one of the most important aspects of living and working together.

It is consideration that helps us learn to cooperate with each other. We begin to see what we each bring to the team. We learn to notice each other’s needs. We soon see that though we are all different, we are stronger together.

It is consideration that leads us to be thoughtful with our words and actions, learning to take people’s fears and doubts into consideration.

Being considerate takes time and effort. It is challenging work. But it brings happiness, strong relationships, and a good and effective team.

•        Why are members of our church family often the hardest ones to get along or work well with?
