Encouraging Discouragement
By: Rick Boxx
August 15, 2014

For years, I’ve been loyal to a particular company because of the great service and exceptional experience I get when doing business with them. Recently; however, my encouragement turned to discouragement when a transaction resulted in damages to my personal property and me, being left inconvenienced.

The company; however, stood behind their product and core values and quickly and fully compensated me beyond my expectations. Standing firm and strong in the midst of adversity is a common characteristic of great companies.

Proverbs 24:10 says, “If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!”

How we react in difficult times is a good indicator of our true character and faith. As Christians in business we should be encouraged, because we have the strength of God to draw upon.
