Here is my Christmas post. Doesn’t look like I put a lot of work into it, I suppose. But spreading the Gospel is not suppose to be a lot work. Jesus did all the work. We just share His Gospel, His love.
So, think about this speaker’s message. He never mentions Jesus Christ, our Savior, but Jesus Christ — God, our Boss, our Creator — gave His life for us. With His example, He taught us how we should love each other.
Therefore, whether he knows it or not, that speaker is teaching part of what Jesus first taught. He teaches that we should love each other in humility, that even Corporate Executive Officers should condescend to share the burdens of their employees.
Philippians 2:5-8 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
See, there's this thing called biology...
I really enjoyed this little Ted talk from Matt Tenney. Love is not only the essence of our faith, it is also good business sense, profitable, economically productive. I see this a lot in customer service, employees who are loved well, love customers, and customers who are loved well keep coming back and spread the word to others. The same is of true of our churches, our families, our communities. Jesus taught us this truth over and over again.
After reading your post a second time, I concur love is the greatest of all human attributes of character for all human endeavors in life.
However, whether in a role of leadership, or followers, I feel the need to need to interject that we mere mortals need spiritual wisdom in order to understand and obtain the knowledge of the power potential of love.
Whether to lead or follow, in order to achieve joy and happiness and/or success in our short time spans of every role we obtain in life.
Regards and good will blogging.
