“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV
Business owner, business leader – you set the mood and the attitude of your business. If you want an atmosphere and a culture where everyone enjoys coming to work – an atmosphere that is uplifting, exciting, filled with hope, joy and respect for one another – it starts with you as a leader. You have to choose to be joyful, to give thanks in every situation and pray continually. I call this the PB&J of business. One slice of bread – Be Joyful Always. Now, we all know that’s tough. A second slice of bread – Give Thanks In All Circumstances. This can even be tougher. This is where your faith needs to kick in because feelings just want to take over. What’s missing? What’s going to enable you and me to walk in faith and not be controlled by our feelings? The PB&J. Praying continually. This is when you ask God to take charge of your attitude and help you walk by faith and not feelings. He will empower your attitude and change your thinking.
