My father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
Wise managers and CEOs know this truth: when they allow their employees to succeed, shine, and get their deserved credit, congratulations will ultimately reflect back on the manager. God knows that the beauty and wonder of his perfect will, his loving will, is not shown only in the words or even the promises of scripture.
His glory is shown in the works of his people, his children … you and me. It is shown in transformed lives and transcended limits. It is shown in the care we give to the planet and the love we show even to our enemies.It shines in mercy, kindness, generosity. The fruit we bear, in all that we do, glorifies the God who made us.
