Refreshing


Read Proverbs 10:1 through 14:35

Published: Apr 25, 2017

Staff meetings are a necessary part of business. Brainstorming leads to better practices, new products, and creative answers. Although an agenda’s purpose is usually positive, meetings can turn into gripe sessions.

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25).

A person filled with the Holy Spirit can turn a chaotic meeting into a prosperous one by redirecting discussion in a positive direction. This may include volunteering for an unpopular assignment. Generosity can take the forms of time,  and advocacy, not just money.

Be an advocate for someone or compliment another’s work. This refreshes coworkers and makes them want to work harder. Since Scripture declares that a generous person prospers, giving of oneself in the workplace is a win-win situation. The business improves, and the Christian receives blessings from God.

Prayer Suggestion: May the words of my mouth refresh another today.
