Matthew 9: 35–38
35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
The Apostles spent their days in their workplaces.
So do we.
In today’s business world, the workers are few. However, are you aware that you are a worker? As Christian Leaders, we are called to bring others to the Lord’s harvest. Our fields, as leaders, are in fact the workplace! We spend countless hours leading our people in the organizations we manage. During those hours, we should be an example of God’s love to our customers, coworkers, vendors and the people we lead. Do we take this responsibility seriously? Do our actions reflect our hearts? Do they reflect Christ? Do you go out of your way to humbly lead your people to Christ? So, Christian Business Leaders, if you are a light to your workplace, if you can truly agree that you are a beacon to all, you are then a reflection of Christ; you are part of building a “Kingdom Minded” company.”
How do you shine a light to your employees? How do you let your customers and vendors know your faith? Sometimes the simplistic ways are the most impactful. Let us know. We love to learn best practices.
