This ties in to JudiFree’s discussion on making your way in a company or organization that is going through major changes. As Christians, we feel it is wrong to toot our own horn. We also profess that promotion comes from the Lord. So what does that leave us to do in a competetive work environment?
I think this thought from InProv gives great direction:
Are You One Who Can Deliver The Goods?
God has given us His goods. And He gave us His goods that we might do business with them. He gave us His goods so that we might use them to serve others, to show them the way to life! Matthew 20:28 says Jesus “did not come to be served, but to serve.” Luke 19:10 says, “The Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” If you become a man or woman who is known to deliver the goods (His goods!), then everywhere you go you will experience His favor. Why? It is because people who sit in darkness desperately want to see light. The hopeless are looking for hope. From InProv’s website
We set ourselves apart through SERVICE. We can define ourselves by finding the NEEDS within our organization and striving to fill those needs. Often times, higher ups and those in leadership may not be able to clearly see those needs. It takes one who is in the thick of it to see where weaknesses lie and then offer ideas for making them strengths. YOU be the one to observe, give input, and be WILLING TO DO THE WORK, and you will become invaluable to your company.
