Happy Friday!

Today’s lesson ties together what we’ve been covering during the past week or so around a SKILLS-based approach to Work using biblically-sound, business thinking (rejecting stinking thinking always) and continuous improvement in business.

The nuggets of wisdom I share will help you evaluate your approach to making decisions in business, and then make adjustments to your thinking and approach as needed.

Let’s go!

PS – You’ll likely see me use the term “continuous improvement” a lot more than usual. I have been taking Lean Six Sigma classes, and you get to benefit from what I’m learning through the lens of my Biblically-based business perspective.

Increase Your Knowledge, Grow Your Business

How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you. Proverbs 1:22-23

Doing what you have been called to do at Work requires you to shift from the worldly business thinking you’ve likely been taught in school or acquired through work experience, to biblically-sound, business thinking that generates wealth through service and value.

  • Biblically-sound, business thinking requires you to see beneath the surface of what appears to be happening around you (in business, particularly) tget to the heart of a matter. To be led by the character of Christ is to make this type of deep thinking (not simple-minded review), your modus operandi in business.
  • Biblically-sound, business thinking is based on insight (that can be complex and nuanced) that is distilled into systems, procedures, and processes that are simple in execution and delivery because they contain the essentials only (nothing unnecessary allowed).
  • Biblically-sound, business thinking considers the long-term impact on decisions and actions. Bringing God glory through generating revenue is always the ultimate goal and objective for everything.

Work in Business and Your Career Like a FAITHgineer:

  1. Determine the likely short-term and long-term impact of your decisions regarding how to increase bottom-line results. Will what you plan to do ultimately glorify God and increase his influence here on earth?
  2. Reject (aka reproof) anything and everything that does not serve God through providing value to His creations (e.g., human beings, animals, and the environment) in the long-term.
  3. Pray for guidance in making complex things simplistic (not merely simple), knowing that when you do this, God will pour His Spirit out to you and make His words known to you, words that will guide your every action and interaction in business.

Now that you know what to do, it’s time to do it. Faith without works is DEAD!
