I pulled this subject line from a book I just read called “The Four Agreements” by Miguel Ruiz. It has stuck with me more than almost anything else I read in the book.
How well do you “do what you say”?
How well do you “watch what you say”?
Do you watch what you say and make sure it is something that you can follow through on?
Does it matter to you when someone else tells you something but then never follows through?
Do you find yourself sometimes talking about others?
I relate to all of this better than I want to admit. I find myself saying I will do things to coworkers when I know I do not have the ability to do them. I find it very easy to talk about other people – mainly because it makes me “feel” like I am better person than them. It is very easy to let things slip out when speaking casually with friends to build up my own self-esteem and my position.
This is not the actions that a Real Christian Businessman should model as impeccability with your word is something not to be taken for granted.
I want to encourage you today as a Real Christian Businessman that if you have fallen into these actions like I have, that there is still a better way to approach it all.
Encourage instead of tear down.
Listen instead of speak.
Do what you say.
“You shall be careful to do what has passed your lips, for you have voluntarily vowed to the Lord your God what you have promised with your mouth.” De (23:23) ESV
“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Eph 4:29 (ESV)
A Real Christian Businessman knows that others are listening to everything that we say – either about our actions or about others. And even though we may not always get it right, our efforts will go a long way.
Take this all as a reminder today – to do what you say, watch what you say, and to be impeccable with your word.
It’s worth trying.
