I had the awesome privilege of being able to have lunch with Frederick Johnson, a motivational speaker with a huge heart for Christ and for children and families. I had a chance to hear Frederick Johnson on Ricardo Miller’s radio show, Children’s Ministry Today. On the show, he spoke strongly about partnership and sharing, something that all of us as ministry leaders and volunteers and workers should embrace.
Everyone in the body of Christ has an opportunity to share a gift and should have that opportunity to share their God-given talent and gift. To add, we should be able to support one another, encourage one another and uplift one another in the Lord.
Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor (Ecclesiastes 4:9, NKJV).
Frederick Johnson’s analysis on partnership was one that could also be brought into the business and entrepreneurial setting. If you don’t share with others, don’t expect to receive later. If you are not connecting and networking with others, don’t expect to be known for what you do as well as others to share your work.
Ministry can be a lonely road sometimes, but it doesn’t have to remain that way. The same goes or start-ups, businesses and entrepreneurship. We must build and maintain strong and healthy relationships with one another in order to survive and go forward! Otherwise, you miss out on a very important piece of ministry development and business growth.
