When Someone Ignores You

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

When I supervise people, I don’t like to be ignored.  I don’t like being ignored as a customer, either.  If I have made a reasonable request, I expect someone to respond to it.

God talks about how his people ignored him. “They turned their backs to me and not their faces; though I taught them again and again, they would not listen or respond to discipline. (Jeremiah 32:33, NIV) When we study the book of Jeremiah we see repeatedly that the people failed to respond to God’s commands with disastrous results for the people of Jerusalem.

Use Ability to Assign Responsibility

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Many readers are familiar with the Lord’s parable about servants who received different amounts of talents to invest. (See Matthew 25:14-30 for the full account.) The Lord said, “To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.” (Matthew 25:15, ESV) I realize that many use this passage for teaching different areas of stewardship. I also understand that though all scripture is God-breathed, frequently a passage will have multiple lessons. As we dig deeper, it provides us with good insight.

Empowering Staff

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The key element in business management is the ability to understand when to delegate the staff and then delegate the authority necessary to accomplish the task. In Scripture we see a wonderful example. Jesus was attending a wedding and the wine had run out for the guest. Scripture relates that his mother asked Jesus to fill the need. Then “His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5 NIV) with these few words Jesus was given the total and complete authority and any tools that he may require to accomplish the miracle of his ministry.
