Integrity Moments - June 23, 2016

 

A Shepherd’s Heart

A doctor was wrestling with an important decision while participating in our “FIRE in the Workplace” study. His practice was suffering financially due to an extra assistant he had hired.

He was trying to decide whether to keep her or take a pay cut personally. He believed this person was the right person long-term, but keeping her was a sacrifice to him financially and personally.

The FIRE study helped him consider the concept of being a “shepherd” to his staff. He obtained peace by concluding that he should temporarily take less pay to provide for this employee.

In Ezekiel 34:15 God said, “I will feed My flock and I will lead them to rest,”

A leader with a servant’s heart looks out for others and shepherds their flock well.
