Encouragement At Work Series, The Danger of the Weakest Link


The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him, because his hands refuse to work.

Proverbs 21.25 (NIV)

One of the most difficult aspects of being a Christian leader is disciplining those who are not pulling their weight. Many weak leaders will ignore the behavior or even have one of their other direct reports try to intervene. Not addressing the weakest link, can destroy a team.

Employee performance issues are an inevitable part of the workplace.

Do you know a leader who will do almost anything possible to avoid having to face the disciplining of the rogue employee? We all have met many leaders who lack the fortitude to lead! Poor performers are sometimes an inevitable part of the workplace and, as a Christian leader; you are called not only by the organization but also by the word of God to manage them. Now, don’t use this as a way to tell them the Bible told you so, but you understand the point. Be brave, leader; know that your motivated employees, your stars, want to see you manage the poor performer. You owe it to them.

Be passionate and direct and manage those who are hurting your organization and you will be ensuring that you are building the strong foundation of a ‘Kingdom Minded” Organization.

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.
