Built to Last, Mentoring Moments, the 1-min blog
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. Acts 2:6 (KJV)
There’s nothing like gathering with people who speak your language. I’m not just talking about those who understand the words coming out of your mouth. I’m talking about people who understand the pictures in your head and the passion in your heart. Get around those people and anything is possible. It’s energizing and empowering!
People who speak the same language can build anything. Check out Gen 11. God Himself testified about those who intended to build the tower of Babel. It was only when their communication was broken that their plans came to an end.
Now, don’t go and surround yourself with people whose demographics are just like yours. That would be unproductive and boring. But make sure your team can see what you see, hear what you hear and feel what you feel. It will take some time, but the results will be built to last.
Success and Progress!
