This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. ~Ecclesiastes 5:18
Wow! Our work is a gift of God. Our wealth, our possessions, are all derived from work and the work God has chosen for us to bear is our lot. If we could only agree with God, it would make our lives that much easier. It has been fascinating to me to watch so many people fight their career predicaments instead of following God’s guidance, as though they are ultimately the one who is responsible to navigate through their careers!
Make a decision to ensure you’re in alignment with God. This means embrace your current situation, make the best of it and lead to excellence. If you are not a fit for your current organization, have the courage to make a change today. Ensure that the people who work for you are properly placed, so that the right people are on the right seats of the bus.
If you come to work every day thanking God for your opportunity, your employees know it! Your employees will do amazing things to help you become successful when they know you are grateful for them and your organization. When you do this, you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.
