Is Your Company Grudgingly Generous?


Be Generous

Deuteronomy 15:10

 10Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Generosity is oftentimes a word we steer clear of. We hate the thought of tithing — is that before or after tax? The awkwardness and evasiveness never seems to dissipate. But what would happen if your organization viewed all of its revenue after expenses and taxes as God’s and not that of the owners and top leadership? Could you do that? Could you convince yourself and the rest of the decision makers that you should consider it to be God’s first?

If you are a miser, your employees will act in miserly ways

If you are a miser and your employees can sense that you are, that attitude will be contagious and more will follow your lead. You see, in reality, employees who work for misers are more likely to act in miserly ways themselves, but employees who work for generous leaders will be generous themselves. Be generous today, Christian Leaders, for if you act ungrudgingly and with generosity, you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Company.
