A businessman and book author recently told me: "In my search for leadership knowledge, I kept coming back to the Bible and realized that Proverbs is a practical business book. I don't need much more."
Did you ever think that the Bible is a source of wise counsel for you at work? Many kingdom workplace leaders hold to the belief that the Bible is the best business book ever written. Psalms provides wisdom during challenges, to give words to our lamenting and petitions to the Lord.
Consider Psalm 62:1-2:
"My soul waits in silence on God alone; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my refuge; I will not be greatly shaken."
The leaders in the Bible, such as Moses, Deborah, Abraham and Queen Esther, provide real examples of what it looks like to be a godly leader. When's the last time you went to the Word, for business wisdom, like the following from Proverbs 6:16-19?
"These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, a false witness who speaks lies, and he who sows discord among brethren."
We're inviting you to pick up your Bible, take it into work with you and open it during your workday when you face challenges during the day.
