A few things come to mind in February for me. One is my wedding anniversary, another is Valentines Day tomorrow, and my wife’s birthday shortly after. Family love is bliss!
Soooo…what about Business Love. That sounds mushy does it not? Oh wait, our business should be like family right?… and our business team should love like a family right? Ask Ray Lewis of the Ravens and he will say they won the Superbowl because the team is ALL Family and Family is Love.
How about we all make a point the rest of the month - to love our coworkers and team members, and clients like our loved ones at home. And then, we very well may decide to keep it going into the rest of the year. Let’s cherish the biblical verse below in our “Month of Love”- and challenge yourself to LOVE every month like this one.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
