As an employee, Doug currently provides monthly services for his employer’s largest client. Recently, this client hired a separate division of Doug’s employer to develop systems to replace the work Doug does by automating it.
Unfortunately, the other division never sought out Doug’s advice. The lack of communication within their own company frustrated their client and caused dissatisfaction.
In Mark 9, John wanted to stop a man who was casting out demons in Jesus’ name, “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me.”
Many businesses don’t operate as one team, instead divisions and silos prevent the mission from moving forward. Don’t allow a lack of communication or pride to hinder your mission.
