Teams Win

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone.

There were so many story lines coming into the game. There were stories about Cam Newton being a black quarterback, would Peyton Manning retire after the game, and would any white guys try to dab?

Another story that was talked about during the game was that if the Broncos won the game it would give Peyton Manning his 200th career win, which would be a record.

In football a quarterback has a win/loss record, which is odd. No one looks a a starting left guard and asks what is your record. Only quarterbacks have the win/loss record. But should they?

Peyton Manning got the Super Bowl win added to his record, but if you watched that game you know that he didn't do anything to win that game. His throws looked bad and some of them were nearly picked off and one of them was. The Broncos won the game in spite of how the quarterback played.

The Broncos won the game because they were the better team. They were the best defense all season and the offense did just enough to not lose. Even the Broncos special teams made big plays.

Teams win not individuals.

Too many times we try to win by our selves. But you never do it by yourself. There is a network of people supporting you.

Every church should be a great team. Great teams work together to accomplish their goals. Your church doesn't need you to do everything, they need you to be a good teammate. Great teams win.
