People Over Profits, Processes & Products

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. - Psalm 8:3-5

Blantyre, Malawi

Beautiful morning here in Blantyre. I’ve been up for quite awhile. It seems like the sun arose an hour ago, yet no one is up, I hear no cars, and the birds have scarcely begun chirping. Chirping is not the right word for bird noises in Africa. A better word is performing. These birds, I noticed this is in South Africa too, have rhythm, intonation, and a kind of intensity in their “performance”. It’s fantastic.

So, I open the windows, plug in a device that keeps the mosquitoes away, pray, read the Bible, and journal. God is showing me some things about righteousness from Proverbs 12. (I challenge you to read that chapter and discover 8 benefits of righteousness.) Powerful.

Then, I begin to journal a dream/vision, I had last night:

I saw shooting stars, and colors, and expanding galaxies one night. It was as if God took me out in space and allowed me to see the glory in the heavens. The galaxies, the stars, and the planets were all celebrating, like a fourth of July galactic star show. It was the most beautiful sight I ever seen. God allowed me to see that all of the galaxies etc. were not able to be compared to who He made me to be.

This dream and the interpretation are confirmed by Psalm 8. Nothing in creation compares to a single human being. This is God's point of view.

Godly leaders understand that the people in their groups/organizations are more important than the products, the processes, and the profits. These leaders take the time to help people discover their unique graces and gifts. They communicate repeatedly through culture and communications the premium value of the people who are working with them. They have God's point of view:

People are the crowning achievement of creation.
