I recently went to work for a ministry committed to helping business owners and leaders who want their faith to influence their work environment. “The Edge” highlights the powerful truth that in business, as well as government, academia, manufacturing, medicine, and other work arenas, who you are at the top sets the tone throughout your workplace. There is no doubt that any person working with a staff can influence those around them, and that influence can have a ripple effect like a pebble in a pond, both up and down an organization. As a high school principal recently told me, the boss can put an umbrella of faith over the entire team that empowers and frees everyone to live by godly principles. We can all think of businesses known for operating with positive, uplifting qualities of service and products, whether they sell bridges, technology, pizza, or chicken. Today, take your faith to work and let the fruit of God’s Spirit permeate your environment.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 NASB
