We live in a fast paced world. We have images, messages, phone calls and all kinds of things coming at us all the time. We don’t have enough downtime to process all the things we have to do.
That causes us to be reactive.
When someone leaves a bad review for us, we become reactive. When someone says something about our faith, we become reactive. When our employees have an accident, we become reactive. When our spouse makes a comment, we become reactive.
Reactive is not the way God created us. God in all of His wisdom created us like Him. We serve a God who breathed and all of creation came into being. We serve a creator who gave us the ability to choose better and be wiser in our business.
I want you to look at this word for a moment. I think it is misspelled. If we take the “c” and move it over a bit, we now have a different word. The word is ‘creative.’
God wants you to be creative in the way you deal with the world. When someone leaves a bad comment, be creative and show them love instead of anger. When someone says something bad about your faith, don’t’ attack them, take time to understand what they believe. When an employee has an accident, take time to care for that employee and understand we are all fallen. When your spouse makes a comment, remember the love you have for your spouse.
Christian business owner, I want you to take this message seriously. I want you to stop being reactive and be the person you were created to be. You are a child of a Creator God and He wants you to be creative.
When you are creative instead of reactive, you have a chance to show the love of Christ to a hurting and broken world.
Go and be blessed and be a blessing.When you are creative instead of reactive, you have a chance to show the love of Christ to a hurting and broken world. Click To Tweet
