Swimming Pool Envy
By Rick Boxx
September 4, 2012
While teaching at a corporate conference, my family was blessed to stay in a nice resort. Since they had several different swimming pools scattered around the property we stopped to ask a staff member to explain the differences of each pool.
We were surprised when the clerk said bitterly, “Employees are never allowed to use the swimming pools so I have no idea.” There may be many reasons for this policy, but this employee took it as a slam against them personally.
God said in Ezekiel 34:2, “Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock?”
A good steward both protects the assets of their business and makes sure their employees feel valued. How do yours feel?
