How To Work Well For Others: July 13 NewsletterNewsletter / Produced by The High Calling
Lots of business advice out there today—even some of the advice we shared with you last week —is for people in charge. Managers, leaders, and CEOs definitely need Jesus. But what about the rest of us?
In this newsletter we’ll be encouraged by the Apostle Paul to do whatever work we do with excellence (even if it’s in the cubicle and not the corner office). We’ll hear a story of how one man found himself leading others by serving them. And we’ll see that support staff is not exempted from Jesus’s scrutiny in one of his most striking parables.
If you feel like your day is one long swim through unanswered emails with an eye on the boss’s door, then this newsletter is for you. Read on.
