Her chosen sources ranged from the late Orthodox Israeli commentator Nehama Leibowitz to classical medieval commentator Nachmanides to contemporary Protestant scholar Walter Brueggemann. The overall theme of the morning was Moses reluctance when called upon for a sacred task. We discussed the idea of a vocation and of feeling that one has a calling for a particular task or occupation in life. My friend, an ethnographer by training, pointed out something that didnt occur to me: Marder uses all these books as props. If Im honest, I was totally charmed by it.

Dont be frightened by the prospect until you have considered it before God. Is He not your CEO?Does He not have access to cattle on a thousand hills?Is He not looking to and fro to show Himself strong on behalf of those that will be loyal to Him? It will help to acknowledge that He is infinitely wise with His resources.If He truly owns your company, He will see to its success. How does God measure the success of His company in regards to employee relations, if not by the way we love those He has brought under our leadership? In his book, The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, John C. Maxwell encourages us: the best leaders desire to serve others, not themselves. Servant Leaders lead in service toward others. Consider this:Every godly leader has the desire in their heart to serve others in their spheres of influence.Surrender to that desire and the Lord will give it to you (Psalm 37:4).In the process you will become the best leader you can possibly be. Ask God to reveal the desire He has placed in your heart for your employees.Remember, He is a process-oriented problem solver, who will direct your steps in this adventure.Start with those that report directly to you. Once you show them you care about their success in their whole life bring them into the adventure.Encourage and enable them to serve those under their leadership.
