Activist Faith co-founder Dan King shares “The Secret of Your Success” from a biblical perspective. Read and be inspired today!
Recently I’ve been in some conversations around what it takes to be successful in the workplace, and it always seems people have different ideas as to what it takes. Some say it’s important to manage your image, others say it’s simply hard work that helps you rise to the top. However, I’ve seen (and experienced) how people may excel in these (and other) areas, but still not experience the kind of success that they strive for. So what does it take?
As I continue looking for wisdom from the Proverbs, I come to Proverbs 3:7-8 where we’re taught:
Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh
and refreshment to your bones.
Whoa… sweet! It says, “It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.”
There seems to be a fullness to this benefit. The bones are on the inside of our bodies, and the flesh on the outside. So there is this inside-out, or a whole person, benefit to following these ideas.
What’s the “it” that is being referred to here?
Well, “it” is the behavior that’s mentioned prior to this statement. That means that if we do “X,” then “Y” will happen. Biblical “if/then” statements are always easy for us to figure out and apply.
In order to get this promised benefit of complete health and restoration (or success), we must first apply a few key ideas. These are our secrets to success…
Bringing God into the workplace doesn’t have to be this preachy, holier-than-thou kind of thing that usually turns people off. But it does mean that you stand for high moral and ethical standards, that you continue to recognize and honor the One that you truly work for, and that you never stop growing. Do these things, and you will experience success and the fullness of health and restoration in the workplace.
