Here’s a neat quote I found,…
“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently
applying the basic fundamentals.” – Jim Rohn
I don’t know who Jim Rohn is. His quote above, however, did get me to thinking about the Christian in the workplace. You see, as Christians we see “Success” a little different than our wordly counterparts. For us, success is not so much about earning more than our bills require of us, and owning flashy things. Instead, success is going to bed at night with a clean conscience before our Lord/Maker/God.
So, I agree with Jim Rohn when He says that “success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.” I agree because the Christian’s basic fundamentals are found in knowing that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. To put it plainer,… Christ is our foundation. If we consistently apply this as the basis for our daily living, then we will naturally gravitate to whatsoever things are pure, holy, right etc. and thereby impart a little bit of God’s character to those around us in the workplace.
In short, we resemble honorable vessels if we keep Him at our forefront.
