Business & Faith Talk with Cerita Nagy
RELATIONSHIPS IN LIFE AND BUSINESS
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
“Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them”,
Life can be though at times, and often one of the toughest parts is getting along with others, but this has a major effect on how we succeed in life.
We may have build a successful and profitable business or hold a high position in a company or in an organisation, but if we haven’t been an instrument of God’s love to help better the lives of those around us, and let Him better us in the process, we have been missing one of the best things in life!
People who generally have a positive effect on those around them, are often more thoughtful of their people skills, than those that have a more negative impact on others, because sometimes they are not even aware of how they come across and possibly think that they do well in this area. This is why it is so important not only to rely on our own assessment, but to measure our interactions with others, with the teachings in God’s Word. We need to apply what we learn, but also acknowledge our weaknesses when it is revealed to us and work on making the changes we need to. God loves us, and wants us to succeed in our relationships with others, and when we are open to His Word, we will see the truth regarding our tendencies and habits we should change.
Maybe it is good to ask someone we respect and trust how they see us. This may give us valuable insight of how we interact in our relationships with others. At the end, it takes our own assessment, the evaluation of others, God’s assessment and His Word.
Be encouraged by the positive and work on the negative and remain open to constructive criticism.
In most businesses and companies, the workplace and environment has changed and looks totally different than a few months ago. Some of us are working from home.
Look for ways to demonstrate love for your co-workers, your employees and even your clients and customers or your family if working from home. Treat them with kindness, extend grace to them and provide them with support.
Open your heart to Jesus and receive His Word and truth and you will be more successful and happier than ever before!
