How many companies give thousands away but their employees can’t afford to buy their medical coverage? This happens more than you might realize.
Having worked at a variety of companies, both secular and Christian-owned, has given me the opportunity to witness a similar thread of generosity absurdity.

Take care of your employees and they will take care of their communities

Ultimately, your employees will grow bitter and their fruit will never ripen.
