Oh To Be Wise Meditations
The more management your given the more you are responsible. With promotion comes intense scrutiny to see if you are worth the increase. More people will challenge you and your position. They come against you and many times they are correct in their findings. How you handle correction and discipline even if you don't agree is a big part of your success. It is good to want increase and more responsibility. To strive for more and to see greater growth in yourself. Jesus said, suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? We must take the time to understand how much it cost to move up on a work ladder. Others may get up there quicker but staying there is just as hard. We must lay a strong foundation mentality and spiritually and continue to build upon our successes and our failures. Too quickly we give up when times get hard and abandon the position God has brought us for such a time as this. People want to steal it from you, or people doubt your competence. Stay strong in your pursuit of pleasing and honoring God with your efforts and talents. The LORD has all made us faithful over a few things, others with many things. The most important thing is to be faithful with what we have been given and work hard to bring glory to God through it. Meditate Matt. 25:29-30 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Manage well, God will handle the increase and the authority overall itself. He has people set in place that we must honor even if we disagree. He will use our best efforts as we honor leadership and authority over us. Things will fall into place because God has final say over all. He is manager of us all. The LORD does what he wants as owner of this world. We are his tenants.
