Are you teachable?

Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults; whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse. Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise, and they will love you. Instruct the wise, and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous, and they will add to their learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:7-10

Here’s how to strengthen your Christ-centered, biblically-sound business thinking, straight from the book of Proverbs.

Core Concept: You know a lot; but, you do not know everything. Be open to growth.

1. Love reprove, for a wise mans loves reprove while a scoffer hates it. (Definition: Reprove implies an often kindly intent to correct a fault.

2. Be open to instruction, for when you instruct a wise man he will be wiser still.

3. Be teachable, for if you teach a righteous man, he will increase in learning.

4. Fear the Lord, not the words or actions of people.

5. Become knowledgable about Jesus, by studying His Word, to gain understanding for how to make Christ-centered decisions at Work in your business or career.

Do your actions reflect your biblically-sound, business thinking?

Take an honest assessment of how you show up in the world with your wise counsel (e.g., mentors, coaches, pastor), employees, contractors, interns, volunteers, vendors, the industry at large, family, friends and others.

Do your actions or ‘approachability’ line up with what the Word says about being open to instruction, teachable, fearful of the Lord, and knowledgable about Christ?

Review your assessment (get help from wise counsel if you need it) and make adjustments as needed.
