David summoned all the
officials of Israel to assemble at Jerusalem: the officers over the
tribes, the commanders of the divisions in the service of the king, the
commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, and the officials in
charge of all the property and livestock belonging to the king and his
sons, together with the palace officials, the warriors and all the brave
King David rose to his feet and said: “Listen to me,
my fellow Israelites, my people. I had it in my heart to build a house
as a place of rest for the ark of the covenant of the LORD, for the
footstool of our God, and I made plans to build it. But God said to me,
‘You are not to build a house for my Name, because you are a warrior and
have shed blood.’ 1Chronicles 28
It was David’s idea to build the temple but it was important for him to
get everyone’s commitment. John Maxwell said, 'One is too small a
number to achieve greatness.' It doesn’t matter how talented you may be
or how strong physically, everyone needs somebody and the best of us
still require some of us to do something great. None of us is ever going
to be as good as all of us.
Commitment to a cause or a team
isn’t automatic; Commitment is only built through involvement. Without
involvement, people sit on the fence, some waiting to cheer if you win
but most waiting to boo when you lose. Open the doors; tear down the
walls of separation and involve the team that’ll make your dream work.
Nothing builds commitment like involvement.
David gave so much in
gold silver and other precious materials for the building of the
temple, however for the record, everyone gave. When there is
involvement, everyone gives.
Teamwork will multiply your efforts
and deliver your dream quicker and easier, receive the grace to pick the
right team in Jesus’ name. Your Divine overflow shall not be denied.
