You’re out there on the basketball court feeling a bit prideful. The game just started and you are ready to be the star and center of attention. Sure, your teammates are pretty good, too, but you know they couldn’t get through a game without you.
Imagine if we thought that way. Some of us actually might at times. However, if we don’t work together as a team when something requires teamwork, it will eventually go all wrong. Sometimes we just need to work together in order for it to turn out, instead of one person trying to do it all.
How can we work as a team? These 7 animals may just help us understand.
If the African Wild Dogs didn’t all do their parts while hunting, they might not ever catch anything because they would get so tired out hunting on their own.
A sled dog team would fall apart if each dog didn’t have a certain role. Each role is important and benefits the team.
I didn’t realize how much teamwork geese needed to have in order to arrive at their destination safely! God gave each goose an important task; whether it’s being a leader or a follower.
Ants can create their very own lifeboat by working together. They stick together and work together to get their queen to dry land.
Meerkats stand their ground together to fight off intruders and predators.
You’d think that 2 horses could pull two times as much as one horse, but actually since they have teamwork, you can find out just how much more they can pull when you click the link!
Without working together, a dolphin could starve. It’s up to each dolphin to do their part in order for each dolphin to have their fill of food.
So you see? Just as these animals need to work together to reach their goals, we need to work together so we can accomplish more.
“Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
