I know business partnerships are messy. I know two entrepreneurs don’t always get along, no matter what kind of front I see them put on. But I can’t help to be envious of some partnerships out there. They just look so….perfect.
I remember one time someone told me that I had the perfect partnership going on. My partnership was far from perfect. In fact, we’re not even partners anymore!
But his comments mean something different to me now. Now, I’m a Godpreneur. Now I realize that everything I do, others are looking on. Now I realize that even my business partnerships are a testimony to others of what Christ looks like.
"In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father". (Matthew 5:16 NLT)
Your business partnership could have an impact on others, both good and bad. People out there are looking in and seeing what Christianity looks like in a business partnership. Regardless of the partner’s faith, if they know you are a Godpreneur, and they are too, they are looking to learn and see how to navigate those waters.
The best way to be a testimony to others is not to talk bad about your partners to anybody. Always be lifting them up, even when you’re in a crisis, or they messed up. Trust me, there’s more to celebrate than to put down, it’s just hard to see it when there’s conflict.
I had a good thing in my partnership, and I should have been more grateful and not focus on our challenges.
God has given us Godpreneurs a great blessing in our business partners and in our businesses. We need to focus on the good in our partners and in business, and celebrate that!
Your Godpreneur partnership together is more significant than our partners and us. Allow the partnership to be a blessing to other partners out there. We don’t have to be business partnership “experts” to do this. We can help somebody from our unique experiences in co-owning a business.
Finding Purpose In Your Business Partnership
You and your business partner are unique individuals and God is creative in the way He wants to use both of your gifts together.
