Ron has been coaching some executives through a significant merger. One of the core values of the acquiring company is to “Love and Serve Others.”
Ron was asked to coach some of the executives from the acquired organization. When Ron was discussing the culture and values of the company with one of the top people from the acquired business, this executive said, “I don’t know that loving and serving others is going to fly around here.”
Ron’s response was direct, “You better get used to it because we talk about it a lot.”
1 John 4:11 teaches, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
Love is not a common word or concept in many businesses, but it is common in God’s economy.
