Today I took a shot. I thought it might work, but I really wasn’t sure.
I attempted to press the message of Romans 1: 19 into a work email.
“19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.”
I knew I had to be careful. The message in that verse is wonderfully strong and potent. I would rather scrap the email text than mess with the word of God.
All Christians that hold claim to a Biblical worldview should make every attempt to view their surroundings from a Biblical perspective. Rarely does this happen often enough.
Time will tell of outcome, but the feedback so far has been positive. “Great message”, “Excellent Message”, “Just a super message “, “Great job”…..
I wonder how many “closet” Christians picked up on the “message”?
If you have a minute, provide feedback using the poll below or the comment section.
I’ll use it for the next opportunity my faith and my employment collide.
Who cares if someone needs assistance? Why should we help anybody?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Declaration of Independence- 1776
Our country has been founded upon this statement, but look closely at the first seven words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident”.
Self-evident means; you, in your conscience, known something to be. You do not need a proof, it is just known.
It is contained inside each of us, everyone has a sense of right and wrong.
• Is it wrong to kick puppies? Yes, I know it is wrong to hurt something that is defenseless and poses no danger or threat to me.
• It is right to assist the elderly lady in the grocery store with her bags when she is struggling? Yes, it is right to lend a hand someone who in need.
• It is right to provide assistance and cooperation to a teammate who is in need of support? Yes, it is right to assist a teammate or co-worker who needs support so the company as a whole may benefit.
Granted, people can, and do, suppress the knowledge of right and wrong. Just watch the evening news. They provide ample examples of very poor decision making each and every night.
What suppression of a self-evident truth does not do is relieve us of the obligation of doing what is right.
What does this have to do with (blank) program???
I will tie this up with a few points from an article I found this morning. (I’ve attached the link to the full article below.)
1. “Salespeople must come to sales calls with a comprehensive understanding of the customer…”
2. “Today a significant number of sales are lost not to the competition but to “no decision.”
3. “Customers expect salespeople to do more than uncover their problems. They expect salespeople to bring an informed, fresh perspective to framing the problem.”
4. “Excel at team selling. Salespeople alone will not be able to provide the needed knowledge and insights to meet the customer’s emerging expectations.”
Guess what fellow (blanks)….. You are now part of that team!
(Blanks) should provide Sales:
1. a comprehensive understanding of the customer.
2. assistance when the customer stagnates on making a decision
3. informed with current, up to date information about the site
4. the needed technical knowledge when required.
But why should we help sales?
• Because we know it to be “Right” and “Self-Evident”, that in order for our business to succeed, we must assist the sales team with information and leads.
Keep driving opportunities and use the (blank) program. They are the process in place to gather this information and get the Sales Teams the information they need!
Go have some fun! It’s all a gift, be sure to be thankful for it!
