On today's show we provided an overview of the Patriarch Era and the multi-generational promises that God fulfilled through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob & Joseph. In subsequent shows we'll be tackling each of these family transitions in detail. This generational approach can help us better understand our own roles in our businesses and ministries.
However, it is important to note that when we discuss the Patriarchs of the faith, we need to remember that they made their fair share of mistakes, but repented and restored their relationship with God. In addition, the character traits and examples of previous generations were continually influencing the generations to follow.
In business we can see this as clear guidance to:
- Remember that all we are just a part of reaching the mission of the organization
- Others will have to take the reigns after us - we we need to focus on equipping them for success. We need to get off their back and get on their team.
- Even the pillars of the faith made mistakes. How should we be treating one another after mistakes are made?
We Were Encouraged by Lynnette Raines!
We had the pleasure of having Lynnette Raines on the show today. During her interview she described her general philosophy of working with others - to help them see themselves of God's creation. She also provided some great advise about how women can achieve balance in the workplace - listen to the entire interview on our podcast!
