One of the ObeyGC2 values is that work is coordinated.

This implies that it is cooperative. For some odd reason, God has equated our love of others with our love of Him. He has chosen to tie our status as His children with our status as siblings of His other children and seems to think that our getting along with them is pretty important. This actually means we need to work together with them. In fact, He goes so far as to actually say we are actually part of one body. This is a major point in Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4. If we are one body, let’s be a coordinated body and not a clumsy one.

Rom 12:3-5

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. 4 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

1 Cor 12:27

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Eph 4:1-6
2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit- just as you were called to one hope when you were called- 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
