An interesting question...
I briefly attended a leadership conference this past week. (I admit, I ducked out before it was finished because I was just too tired to sit there and listen...)
One of the questions that was posed to participants was this:
"How have your beliefs influenced your policies and productivity?"
As others shared about ramping up policies and productivity to be better stewards of God's resources and giftings, by the world's standards, perhaps I look like a naive freeloader:
- Policies: intentionally cooperate with God by creating unhurried space to hear His voice, linger in His presence, open my heart to trust His love and leading. Oh, and some folks who hang out with me might also add: "Thou shalt not 'should' on thyself"
- Productivity: respond to what He invites me to (with all my heart, soul, mind and strength).
I'm wondering how you would answer this question?
Peace and Good
