We love an inspiring thought about work. What I mean is that as entrepreneurs we seek work that we love and we seek a spiritual depth of meaning to our work. We seek work that we love and bringing great value to those we are meant to serve.
Here is a quote from Kahlil Gibran that gives us some words to chew on about meaningful work:
“Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.” — Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet pg. 28
I think the positive image of that first line sums up what we seek our businesses to be — love made visible. We seek out of a loving intent to serve our clients in whatever niche is ours.
We seek this because God is love and we are images of God. We seek abundance for others and for ourselves. We know in our deepest souls that we are meant to be and do love and to make love visible in our little part of the world, and especially through our work.
As entrepreneurs we are blessed with the opportunity to make love visible and it is our joy to live that out each and every day. This is an inspiring thought about work. It is my honor and joy to lift this image before you this day. May we all live into this radical love from God each and every day with joy filled hearts.
