We all have relationships at work. We provide Atlanta recruiting services to place refugees into those relationships. We also desire to impact business people through great content. The following is a guest post compiled for a devotional with the YouVersion Bible App entitled “Bible on Business.”

Work Relationships

Have you ever asked God why He’s placed the people you work with in your life? As business people we are obliged to fill our busy agendas to make profits, but as business people serving God, we also have the duty to stop and reflect about the people God has put around us.

Much of our company’s present business admin staff has been with us since the day we first opened our doors and the majority of them started on the sales floor of our stores. The retail industry is known to have high turnover, but I have been blessed to develop great relationships with our team and see them grow.

They teach me as much as I teach them. Their ideas, enthusiasm and hard work make me excited to go to work every day. I feel very blessed to be able to pray with them and share life with them in our workplace even though some of them don’t share all of my core values.

It can be easy to dismiss people with our busy agendas or prideful attitude because we reach a certain status within a company, but this is not what God intended for us as Christian businesspeople. He wants us to be influenced by Him so our lives, our decisions and our business philosophy can influence others and help them understand there is a merciful and loving God who will provide for every one of our needs.

Ask God to help you sharpen those he’s placed around you in their work and in their spirit.

Pouring out God’s love, wisdom and mercy into our colleagues, employees and suppliers is a beautiful form of worship. What if you become the instrument, through which a person meets our Lord Jesus Christ?
