Values = Actions = Results

Morning and I trust you had a good weekend.

Its true that the results we get usually are as a result of what we do and what we do comes from our values and beliefs.

Romans 12  v 1-2 tell us “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Here Paul is especially interesting in what he says in light of what has come before it. Chapter 11 concludes a lengthy consideration on the doctrinal foundation of Christianity, showing the central importance of faith and grace. Instruction in the practical aspect of Christianity begins with chapter 12. The two sections are linked by the word “therefore.” By this, Paul demonstrates that Christian living is inseparably bound to Christian belief. Faith without works is dead, and works without the correct belief system is vanity. Wrong thinking cannot lead to right doing.

How true at work. I am always after a “result”, a conclusion to an issue, or a final position all parties are happy with. To secure these results means I have to take action(s) and if my thinking is wrong then the things I do wont be right so the result may not be what I was hoping for.

So in the practicalities of work life and in my walk of faith once again the Bible hits the spot on both counts. Its worth a read if you haven’t picked it up or a while!

Bye for now..

Mark
