Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me…. For apart from me you can do nothing.
(John 15:4, 5)
Your talent can take you where your character may not be able to keep you. A good success is not just about results, it’s about deepening your roots – it’s something that’s sustainable.
Developing a strong root system is something we as a company have been talking a lot about. Individually, we need a deep, healthy root system to sustainably grow our character. We have to be connected to the Lord, then we will produce an excellent character and will be the leaders that others want to follow. As we individually develop strong, healthy root systems, we will combine together into a strong, “Built to Last” company. If we’re not connected to something greater than ourselves, our character will not keep up with our talents, and we will crash and burn.
Heavenly Father, thank you for taking an interest in us and providing a root system that is greater than us.
