This big buzz word in business development right now is “Why.” Organizations are reminded that people have to understand why you are in the business you are in and what makes you different than everyone else. In consulting I especially remind ministry leaders to make sure your ministry is not about what you want, instead make sure it is about God using you to bring others to Him.
Our faith and desire to live like Christ is no different. Why are you doing what you do? If we look at all of our actions sometimes, we will see that we did things because we wanted others to see what we did. Maybe we were bitter we weren’t recognized for the nice things or contribution we gave to someone else. That shouldn’t happen if to please other humans. The “Why” to what we do is simply to please God and be whole.
