The Fear of God by She Reads Truth
The Fear of God can be complex, but these Bible verses and questions provide valuable insight for reflection:
“In Genesis 31:42, Jacob referred to God as “The Fear.” What exactly does it mean to fear God? Does it mean cowering under a rock for fear that if He sees us, He will strike us down?
When the Bible talks about “fearing God,” it means we should revere God as holy. Fearing God by revering Him as holy is not a posture of hiding; it is a posture of drawing near.
Consider these proverbs that focus on fearing the Lord.”
Lecrae’s Story is Our Story by Matthew Robbins
We all may come from different backgrounds, but we all share one story in God. Lecrae’s new book highlights just that:
“Lecrae’s story shows how God continues to be in the business of pursuing sinners with his grace and exposing the vanity of whatever idols they’ve chosen to worship. This pursuit will always make us cultural exiles, those residing somewhere not truly home.
We’re outsiders. Never completely fitting in. Anomalies. That’s Lecrae’s story. It’s my story.
Hopefully it’s yours, as well.”
6 Ways to Motivate Individuals to Become a Winning Team by Jordan Fliegel
Being a leader is often like being a coach: inspiring your team, channeling their talents and energy and capitalizing on their performance. Jordan explains how you can motivate your team well:
“Motivation comes from two places — intrinsic, which comes from within, and extrinsic, which comes from external forces. As a leader, it’s easy to rely on incentives, penalties and other extrinsic motivation – “If you do X, you will get Y” — but these kinds of incentives only go so far. The best coaches on the ball field and the best leaders in the office understand that to build a truly winning culture, you need to create intrinsic motivation. Inspiring those you lead to do great work for the love of the work itself and not because they’ll receive a trophy at the end of the game or a mention in the next company newsletter.
But how do you instill that passion? Here are six lessons I’ve learned from coaches to foster intrinsic motivation in your office.”
