Encouragement At Work Series, The Shadow of Arrogance

Ecclesiastes 5:6

6Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, “My vow was a mistake.” Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands?

Have you ever watched really good employees produce excellent results and then ruin it all with their arrogance? Have you ever witnessed a senior executive deliver a passionate speech that rocked your world but, at the end, credit themselves and not their teams?

You Will Never Have Enough Money

Ecclesiastes 5:10

10Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.

I have made a lot of money at times and I have made little money at other times. One underlying similarity is that I have never had to sleep on the streets or go unfed. We serve and experience an amazing God, One who cares for us far more than we could ever imagine. I believe, and have always believed, even before I was saved, that if you love what it is that you do, if you put your whole heart and soul into it and you trust God, you will reap amazing rewards, and not just financial ones.

When you put your trust in God, you will reap rewards

So, dear Readers, if you love God far more than your money and your stuff, it will be evident to all, especially the people you lead. If you are leading for God and not money, you are truly building the strong foundation for a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.

Help our community of readers

Have you experienced severe greed? Have you experienced incredible generosity? Share your thoughts. God bless you for sharing.

Kingdom-Minded Employee Engagement Programs

Sometimes the best way for employees to develop an appreciation of what they have is to take a closer look at what other people have. I would like to introduce to one program that does just that.

Employee engagement is not only concerned with aligning employees to the goals and objectives of their organizations. Engagement can be just as much about aligning their hearts to the organization’s vision, a vision we hope has a Kingdom impact. Employees who perceive a greater good in what is being done in addition to their daily roles have a greater sense of purpose and satisfaction. All of us, at one time or another, have experienced that longing for a true sense of purpose. Having an engagement program that helps employees fill that void will benefit not only the organization, but also the world we live in.

Imagine a company that generates an impact not simply on one child’s life but an entire village.

Meet Elexio. Elexio makes a difference, not just in their Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania community, but also in Honduras. Today, we’ll talk to Jeff Hostetter, the CEO of Elexio, to learn more about their commitment to community.

Labor Day Special Christian Family Radio with Susan Woodard

During this Labor Day special broadcast, Mark A. Griffin and Susan Woodard discuss how Christian business owners can prosper their businesses using sound human resources practices that support their Christian values.

A little bit about Christian Family Radio

Christian Family Radio transmits from Bowling Green, Glasgow, and Owensboro, Kentucky and can be heard by listeners across two dozen counties in Kentucky and about another dozen in northern Tennessee.

Christian Family Radio was the dream of board member James Chapman over 30 years ago. Upon returning from vacation, he and his wife shared with their youth group about a Christian radio station they had heard. The youth then made a covenant to pray for a full-time Christian radio station in the Bowling Green area. In 1984, a nonprofit corporation was set up to establish just such a station. Construction was approved in February 1985, and Christian Family Radio broadcast for the first time on April 23, 1986.

Tune in to these Kentucky radio programs at:

  • 90.7 FM, Bowling Green
  • 89.3 FM, Glasgow
  • 91.7 FM, Owensboro

Have iTunes? Podcast is available through iTunes.
