Everybody Gets a Ring

According to Wikipedia - "A championship ring is a ring presented to members of winning teams in professional sports leagues, and, in North America, college tournaments." 

If all the members of a winning team, win and are rewarded for winning, wouldn't it make sense for EVERYone on the team to play their position in order to guarantee success?  Far too often team members are after their own "glory" and fail to remember the value of team work.  For example: if we are all members of the body of Christ why are we competing against one another for notoriety, instead of working together to win souls to Christ.  We are already on a winning team so why not play our position to obtain our crown.  Scottie Pippen knew the benefit of playing his position because Jordan needed Pippen to be at the right place at the right time in order to score; the same way God needs us to be in place, doing the right thing at the right time.  When the Bulls won, everyone got a ring even the dude that sat on the bench.  The benchwarmer practiced and was ready if he was ever needed, he cheered for the team and encouraged his team.  We may not be Jordan or Pippen, but are we ready if God calls us to fill in?  Are we practicing and doing our part to win?  Teamwork is essential because when the team wins, we all win!  Everybody gets a ring!!
