Do you think much about the culture in which you work? Each one of us have a vital role to play in creating culture. There are 3 ways that you contribute to the culture around you. I call these your CAA.
Comments – Comments are huge, they can be flippantly thrown around without ever comprehending the impact they have. Proverbs 15:4 says “A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.” Don’t be a spirit breaker, Use your comments to bring life to the culture around you.
Attitude – Do you have an attitude of gratitude? Would those around you say that you are a joyful person? Proverbs 17:22 reminds us of the outcome of having a joyful attitude. “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” What type of medicine are you? Does your attitude create a culture of healing or of drying up the bones?
Actions – Our actions are fueled by our comments and our attitudes. Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Can you say that your actions are in the name of the Lord Jesus? What type of culture do your actions create?
As you begin a new week examine the culture you are in, the impact your have on it, and how you can improve it. You can make a difference!
