“If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.” I Corinthians 3:14 ESV.
What is the foundation of your life? And how do you focus your energy toward building upon it?
After a 30+ year career in corporate America (and still going), plus 40+ years following Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, I’ve learn many lessons the hard way. One of those lessons include how to determine what is more important for the long term.
I’ve seen short-term solutions that caused severe long-term problems. I’ve also seen solutions that blessed everyone involved in the matter. Not winners-losers, but winners everywhere.
The core of those favorable long-term solutions were built on Biblical values. They were deliberate decisions based on Biblical beliefs. In addition, those decisions that placed the importance on relationships proved invaluable over and over again.
Yes there were temporary setbacks. However, in most cases, they were just timing situations that had to be worked through.
If a young person entering the business profession today asked me, “What areas should I invest most of my personal development toward”? I would simply reply: seek out Eternal values, base your beliefs on reality as revealed by the Triune God through the pages of the Bible, and learned everything you can about how to be a blessing for others.
These three friends when chosen and acted upon will open the doors for you to see opportunities, improve your relationships with others, and give you a mental perspective attuned to the living God. In other words, which values, beliefs, and relationships will lead you toward a life worth living?
