A healthy organisation is bigger than just one person.
Reference: All the birds settled on the fallen tree, and all the wild animals lived among its branches. (Ezekiel 31:13 NIV)
Explore: I have held four different full-time jobs with four different organisations. While one of these jobs had a difficult conclusion, I feel that I ended well with my colleagues at my other work places.
When you leave a job that you have committed yourself to, it’s hard to move on, or to see the organisation move on without you. But one thing I have learned is that a healthy organisation is bigger than just one person.
As much as we would like a company to falter from our loss, the majority of the time it fills the gap and moves on. The important thing for self preservation is to leave in such a way that you can move on too.
Application: When God told Ezekiel about the fall of Egypt he referred to it as a majestic tree. However, the tree grew proud and fell hard. And yet, if you look at how the wildlife respond, they hardly change whether the free is standing strong or if it has fallen flat.
Life moves on without us and while we can sit and wallow in that fact, we can also choose to move with it. When you make a decision, make sure you can live with it and you’re willing to endure the ramifications.
God can be part of our prosperity, however, we must remember to always hold Him with the utmost of importance as life is not worth living if He moves on without us.
Prayer: Lord, we may experience abundance and drought, but we pray that we will hold fast to You in every season. Amen.
Do you feel that life is passing you by?
