Earning a Living to Serving a Purpose

In what way, can you balance the secular business world and that of your Christian beliefs? Do you have to choose? As adults, we can often feel torn between what is accepted and popular in our culture that can often contradict with our Christian beliefs.

In today’s business world, we often led by bottom line pressures. According to Larry Julian, author of God is My CEO: Following God’s Principles in a Bottom Line World, we do have a choice.

The pressure that Godly leaders feel strengthens them, helps them prioritize principles, defines their character, and helps determine their legacy as leaders, wrote Julian.

There is a difference between earning a living and serving a purpose. So, it is important to find God’s calling and your purpose as a leader. Our purpose can drive everything, from what we do, to how we do it, and for whom we work. Over time, Julian noted, our mission and purpose take precedence over profitability.

In his book, God is my CEO: Following God’s Principles in a Bottom Lined World, Larry Julian outlined ideas that he refers as “God’s principles.”

In time, states Julian, we can move from success to significance.

“Hope the future.”–Jeremiah 29:11

Let’s start…how do you define success?
