Does What You DO as a Leader Honor God?

“ They claim to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit for any good work.” Titus 1:16

As Christian business owners, we have a special responsibility to operate our businesses with integrity. People will not only judge us by what we do, they will judge the Lord we serve by the actions we take.

Practically speaking, this means we are prohibited from doing certain things in business. Here’s a short list of things we must be intentional about not doing and put in place systems that keep us in integrity.

1. Do not be double minded. Be thoughtful and methodical about developing a process for making decisions quickly, and then for evaluating the impact of decisions made for adjustments. Then, follow your process, making adjustments at the scheduled times. Do this and increase trust, morale and momentum within your organization and with those whom which you do business.

2. Do not make promises that you fail to keep. If, because of an emergency, you cannot keep a promise, understand that your failure to do what you’ve said you would do is serious and treat it as such. Apologize, sincerely. Make amends when possible. Do not let it happen again. This is true when working with people inside of your business (staff, contractors, interns, volunteers, etc.) and when working with clients, customers, vendors, suppliers and others.

3. Do not cheat or swindle or use dishonest weights (see Proverbs 11:1). This is pretty much self explanatory, so I’ll leave it here.

 

Praise God that the Bible does not just tell us what not to do; it also makes it clear what God wants us to do. God want us to pursue excellence and do everything for the glory of God. The Word says …

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

This includes the Work that we do in business. Excellence in the pursuit of making decisions that show others the character of God must be a core business value.

It’s so important that you take the pursuit of excellence to heart in your business. The world needs to see the positive impact of companies, movements, enterprises in all industries being led by Kingdom-minded leaders, like you. So, stand strong and work in excellence; letting the light of Jesus shine through your business and throughout the world.
