Servant Leadership in the Marketplace

Reading a devotional this morning, I was prompted to write this post about being a servant to others, especially in the marketplace. The scripture quoted was Mark 9:35, “And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all’

As we build businesses or work for an employer, let us have a servant mindset. Let us always strive to do our best work and to do it unto God and in service to others.

I have always loved the Zig Ziglar quote that says, “You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.

Another comment worth considering from Zig Ziglar as it relates to business is this: “I suggest the greatest challenge to Christians in the business world is within – making the heart determination (simply put, the choice) to live by God’s principles and sticking with it; making the commitment to serving Christ and mankind with our efforts, our gifts and our knowledge.”

Think about it…Are you using ALL your gifts and talents in the service of others? Whether you are an entrepreneur running a business or an employee working a job, are you totally applying yourself to it in a way that serves those who benefit from what you do? Even performing a role of service in your church is an important way of serving others and honoring God in the process. I myself am a Realtor and I strive to always put my clients first. Earning commission is secondary to helping them achieve their dreams and goals.

How about you? Leave a comment about the ways you use your talents in service to others in the business or ministry you participate in.

Proverbs 3:3-6 instructs us this way:

Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and a good [b]reputation
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.

Stewarding Your Business for God’s Glory

It has been my desire to write and teach on ways to honor God in business, whether it be as an entrepreneur building a business of your own, or as an employee of someone else’s business. I believe the principles are very similar, if not the same. So go with me on a journey as I have done much study on this topic and am embarking on blog posts to share what I have learned. I hope many will benefit…

God designed me for a purpose in the marketplace. — Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Actually do it…Quote from Ralph Marston

I really like this Quote from Ralph Marston

“It’s great to know precisely what you want, and why you want it, and how to make it happen, but that’s not enough. You have to actually do it.

It’s helpful to learn all the skills, techniques, clever tricks and strategies, yet just knowing all those things won’t make anything happen. You have to make it happen.

You can read books, watch videos, go to seminars, hire a coach and do all sorts of other things to prepare yourself.

Yet you also must put all that knowledge and preparation into action, day after day after day.

Achievement happens only when you actually do it. And the only time you can actually do it is now.

Complaining about how bad you’ve had it, or how unfair life is, doesn’t count. Waiting until conditions are perfect doesn’t count.

Focused, purposeful, positive, effective action is what counts. And right now is the time to actually do it.”

~ Ralph Marston

And to this I would add the Quote from God’s Word in Matthew 19:26:

“With Man This is Impossible, But with God ALL Things are Possible!”

God Has Reopened The Door

Four years ago the Lord told me to put my real estate licenses down.  As much as I didn’t really want to do this and probably fought Him for awhile, I did this and thought I would never list and sell residential real estate again.


He has graciously reopened the door for me to reinstate my license in Delaware, the state where I currently reside, and I am more than excited to get going again.  I wanted to share my website with you and to say TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!  GREAT THINGS HE HATH DONE!
