Shining Light (Biblical concept-Hiding your light under a bushelLet your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

The workplace was created by God to provide man with the means for loving Him; and not just with our finances. We are to love Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. All our talents should be invested into His kingdom work.

To love God fully, we must love our neighbors as ourselves. We love God by loving others, in and through our work. Furthermore, kingdom enterprise has supernatural power to transform communities through works of mercy and service.

When we do our work for others – to meet the needs of employees, customers and those less fortunate – they will see beyond who we are and recognize the One that gives all good gifts to men. They will glorify our Father in heaven. In beholding His glory, they will be transformed (2Corinthians 3:18).

As you make plans for the remainder of this year, be sure to include at least one strategy and project for the One that you serve. Include others in the work. Plan to sacrifice.

Humbly yours and forever His,

Reach OutFor the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. 2Chronicles 16:9

Loyalty is important in all areas of the workplace. In business, we desire loyal customers, partners and employees. Politicians hope their constituents will be loyal to their cause (and vice-versa). Educators want their students and parents to be loyal to their institutions of learning.

Strategist, marketing consultants and brand specialists have developed a myriad of programs and processes to create, sustain and increase the loyalty of others. A lot has been invested by a lot of people. So, why is loyalty so hard to find?

Perhaps we are going about it in the wrong way. Loyalty is a personal thing; and it cannot be manipulated. You cannot buy it. Yes, this flies in the face of expert opinion – because God has a better way. He modeled it Himself; and He sent His Son to do the same.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. Mark 10:45

Workplace Ministry Tip: Loyalty requires personal investment. It should not surprise us that such a valuable thing has a proportional cost. As a leader in the workplace, are you looking to show yourself strong on behalf of others? Are you looking to serve?

Humbly yours and forever His,
