The Proverbs 31 woman is a blessing to others in many ways. She is thoughtful, she considers the needs of others above herself and she is willing to give her time to help them. She is a blessing to her family because she always thinks of their needs and wants first.
Most women have this innate desire to want to serve others, help them provide for them. Maybe because women were created to be caregivers it naturally becomes a gift. It is good to note that being a blessing to others and serving others is really the best way to grow whether it is personally or professionally.
Business leaders need to understand that blessing others starts inspiring others. Not ordering them or dictating them, but inspiring them and valuing their opinion. A servant leader knows that without everyone’s effort, they will not succeed. Even Jesus in the Bible had a team of 12 men to help him with his journey and through it all he was always humble.
A servant leader can be a blessing to their team by creating a culture of trust by keeping their word and also being part of the team. They know that their team is an important asset that will help them succeed. They can also be a blessing to others by developing other leaders. It does not matter to them that they may be replaced. They work to raise others up tp be better and go further in finding their purpose and calling.
In thinking about the long term and not just the task at hand, by long term meaning thinking about how the business can be a blessing to those that they serve as well as the staff members, servant leaders are using their God-given resources to be a blessing to others. This translates to being a steward of God’s spirit. This does not mean that leaders be served but they do the serving.
The Bible tells us that in all that we do, we should look at serving others and being a blessing to them. And so this doesn’t mean that we sacrifice everything that we have to give away, large amounts of money to charity, although that’s a good thing, it is not the only way to bless others.
Even as the Bible tells us to love others as we love ourselves, it is important to note that before you can be a blessing to someone else, you need to love yourself first because service comes from love and you cannot love others if you don’t love yourself.
