Had a great long weekend just away at a mountain… Being in around God’s people and being refreshed by God’s truth, nothing can compare to that. I had also had chance to catch up with some leaders that I didn’t have the chance to on usual days and some other friends whom I don’t normally meet in church. I’m amazed by how we just blend into each others conversation and lives getting to know each other so easily. Maybe this is called- a spiritual family.
I spoken to a young successful businesswoman who lead a team of 9 in an event company. I remember hearing her testimony about how she had honour God and stood against taking or giving bribe to win a project. Yes, she have lost some but God had blessed her even more just by her faithfulness.
She gave me some pointers as I started a new journey of my career. She shared 3 points:
- persevere, don’t give up
- be detailed, careful for everything that you need to do,
- (this is the one she emphasized on so much) Be generous, keep giving, DON’T rob God. TITHE! she went on sharing with me she tithe rounding- UP the cents and dollars rather than rounding down and how she decide how much to give for offering each week.
