The Impact of Yield

The rules of right of way make sense.

A manueverable motor boat yields to a sailboat because it can more easily recover from the turn.

A bicyclist going downhill yields to one struggling uphill, because he can get back up to speed more quickly.

The senior partner invests a little bit of time helping the junior one, because no one else has the skills to do so, not because reciprocation is the goal.

Asymmetrical trades are what makes a society work.

Yield has two meanings, and one leads to the other.                                                -Seth Godin, Yield

Encouraging others to yield to ministry has two benefits:

  • the yield for the individual is spiritual formation…becoming more like Christ
  • the yield for the body of Christ is that it becomes the body of Christ

What’s your yield?
