Harnessing Diversity


Jesus had a diverse team, different in many ways and yet all struggled with the same sins. How can you harness the diversity of your team toward greater effectiveness?

Jesus had a diverse team. A tax collector, fishermen, a political activist, someone to manage the finances; some were impetuous, some more reflective and cautious. All struggled with pride and fear. Jesus poured Himself into them, building them into a powerful and effective team who would collaborate for a greater cause. How can you harness the diversity of your team toward greater effectiveness?

These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter), James son of Zebedee and his brother John (to them he gave the name Boanerges, which means “sons of thunder”), Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.—Mark 3:16-19

Prayer: Jesus, show me how to harness the diversity of those around me. Help me to love them as they are while calling them to become more than they think they can be. Help us to accomplish more together than we can alone. In Your name I pray, amen.
