Set Them Free
By: Rick Boxx

A wise friend had several employees who had become buried in personal debt. It was beginning to impact their productivity as the worry and fear mounted.
He decided that there were enough of his people in this predicament that he needed to take action. He might have considered terminating them, instead he hired someone with financial expertise to come in and train his staff on personal finances. He even arranged for them to receive individual counsel and budgeting help.
In Psalm 146:7 it says of God, “He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free.”
As leaders, God is our model. Do what you can to set others free of their bondage. It will likely result in increased excellence.
