So our rugby team (Jersey United Banks) are going away on the weekend for our first Hampshire cup game. Only 2 or 3 people have gone away before in the team to play in the Hampshire cup so we have a relatively new squad. Things are looking good though, tonight there was a lot of focus and less messing around at practice with everyone looking towards the weekend and the challenge to come. So I thought today I would talk about teamwork, as without a great team through all the players we won't progress very far in the cup. So let's see what the bible has to offer us.
"two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who falls and has not another to lift him up!" (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11)
You know what this is about boys, one takes the ball in and if he has no support the balls going to get ripped or turned over, so always go into contact with someone.
"though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him - a threefold cord is not quickly broken" (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
When the ball is on the ground one man has a hard time keeping that ball safe but if two go over its hard for the opposition to get to the ball, and should almost be impossible.
"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." (Proverbs 27:17)
Everyone has their responsibilities and everyone should be looking to the men on either side for support and know that they are going to be in for everything that's about to happen.
Let's Focus and get the win on the weekend.
