Salt & Light Volume IV, Issue 7 by D. Scott Prindle
"Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christís behalf, be reconciled to God." (2 Corinthians 5:20)
This is the scene from our beach chairs on a recent business trip. When working in Florida how can we not go to the beach?
Four hundred years before the spring break throngs, the French Protestants and Spanish Catholics came as ambassadors for their faith and country to these shores.
On several of our business trips we have had opportunities to meet people as ambassadors for both Christ and our company.
From Americans to Austrians, people have the same basic needs. Are you meeting these needs through your business?
Do people want to associate with you and your company? Do you communicate that they are more than just "customers" or "clients"?
- To Belong
- To Have Value
- To Be Competent
To Have Value
Most of us do a good job letting our customers know how much we value their business. Do you also do a good job valuing them as people?
To Be Competent
Do your products and services help people become better in their own careers and callings?
Use these questions to evaluate your business. What can you offer to more effectively meet these basic human needs? Meeting them is good business from a good heart.
God Fills What Man Cannot
Ultimately, only Christ completely fulfills these basic needs. You are accepted by Him, highly valued by Him, and competent in Him... always!
As you do business and travel, share this Good News whenever and wherever you can as Christ's ambassador.
Love Never Fails,
Scott & Laurie Prindle
