As Christian entrepreneurs, we may not always see how we inspire others, but we inspire in everything we do. There may be a customer who sees our values. There may be a worker who sees the way we treat others. There may be a passer-byer who notices a moment of kindness.
“Inspire” comes from two Latin words meaning “to breathe into.” When we become Christians, God breathes His Spirit into our lives. We are to take that Spirit into the world and make a difference. We are to breath into the world and live inspired lives.
As Christian entrepreneurs, we are to use the Spirit of God to inspire others. Take a look at how God wants us to use His Spirit to breathe into our family, community and world (loosely based on Galatians 5:22-23).
Breathe into the world love.
Breathe into the world joy.
Breathe into the world peace.
Breathe into the world patience.
Breathe into the world kindness.
Breathe into the world faithfulness.
Breathe into the world discipline.
We can only breathe into the world what God has placed in our lives. God lives in you and you were placed in business to make a difference. You were placed in your business to inspire and breathe the love of God into the world around you.
As a Christian entrepreneur, you already live an inspired life. Be intentional, be inspirational and live inspired.
