Doors Opened


As you view your daily life, do you see it as including open doors of opportunity to impact others? Keeping with this perspective, do we consider those opportunities as ones opened by our Father in Heaven?  As we go through each day, the presence of Christ guides our path.  This impact includes our businesses, and the lives of the stakeholders within it. 

Commissioned in the Marketplace

Paul speaks to what we have been called to do in 2 Corinthians 2: 14-17,

In this passage, Paul describes our role of being a messenger of the Gospel. That he was picked and commissioned by God.  Paul described in 1 Corinthians 9:17 this as being entrusted with this responsibility.  I believe Paul is telling us that being this messenger of God was his Stewardship.  Viewing his life and calling under this context is the basis for why he made sacrifices over the course of his life.  

Likewise, we have also been called specifically as God’s messengers.  Commissioned as His Stewards within the context of our businesses.  It is in our businesses which represent the areas of our lives we spend the most time.  In doing so, we have significant potential for eternally impacting people.  In other words, we have also been given a Stewardship as a number one priority, within the marketplace.  

Monday Morning

Have you thought about your business as God’s and your role as His steward being your highest priority?  With this mindset, in what ways may this change the way you lead, operate and achieve results? Spend time each week considering the various aspects and processes within your business. Does the way in which your company carry them out honor God? Does the results of your interactions with employee’s, vendors and customers leave the aroma of Christ in their path?

Going deeper in these biblical and business intersections are a driving force and inspiration for writing and bringing like-minded men and women together.  We can impact the marketplace for eternity as individual businesses. Consider that we can maximize our influence and experience more traction as we come together.

Faith, Timing and Provision

When we search for direction in a business decision, it will likely involve aspects of faith, timing and provision.  A few examples may be seeking direction on when to start a new product or service, pull out of a territory, add to your team and hire, let go of a staff member not fulfilling the duties of their job, and many others. 

God will often use the things not so obvious and last-minute to provide both direction and exactly what we need at each step of the way.  This requires faith and confidence that God is ultimately your boss, leader and financial provider.  As you carry out and are driven by His purposes within your organization, He will provide the resources you need at exactly the right time.

Godly Leaders Trust and Obey, Daily

As leaders, we will experience uncertainties and likely some anxious moments. These ups and downs can go along with business cycles, world and economic events.  In these times, stay focused on following God and pursuing first His kingdom. This aligns us with His purposes and honors Him as stewards. When we do, He promises to provide for what we need.  (Matthew 6: 8-11)   As business owners and leaders, this will require faith. In return, it will lead us to a deeper Trust in God, and will result in obeying Him daily.  These biblical principles are illustrated in the Christmas story of Jesus birth as captured in Matthew 1: 18-25.

A Leader’s View of Money- Eternal Economics Indicator

When you think about your business, it likely revolves around and is driven by one central component:  Money.  Ultimately this is what the world we live in measures as success.  Money is what people work for, returns your business investment, what your vendors seek, and what your customers use to access your goods and services.  There is no way around this, nor should we over-spiritualize it.  However, what you are driving towards and continually reflecting on will determine your eternal impact.  What you are making your life and business ultimately about, and what you are doing with this money may be the most important factor.  This is what I will call the Eternal Economics Indicator.
