En-Joy-Oh the joy of giving

Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
Mahatma Gandhi
I was reading this quote and fell in love with it. Often time people rendered services which they hate to do.  Many people don’t like to serve.  Rendering your services to others brings joy.  It brings brightness and helps others along their way. I believe people lack understand on joy and can’t remember what joy feels like.  Joy causes you to smile, speak to people, and extend your hand to others.

Today I had lunch with my dad.  My dad is wonderful; he has a wealth of knowledge.  He teaches Bible study.  He shared with me when Paul visited Rome; there were idols of all kind visible.  Paul did not serve them by brow beating them about Christianity but he acknowledged them by saying, “I see your people are very religious.”  This opens the door for dialogue.  He was then able to serve the people and he was received by many.

I believe as business leaders, experts in our field need to take the approach of Paul when dealing with people.  We are serving them, providing a way to make a better life for themselves, and their families by spreading a little joy.  Some people like to hammer their way through the hearts of others this will never work.  A kind gentle heart influences others.  Paul acknowledges people and embraced them.  He did not use harsh tactics, or rude ideologies to persuade.  He used kindness and spread the joy of the Lord to each one he met.  I know many people will think that some people don’t deserve to be served because of their attitudes. But, they really do desire it.  Being hard nose and condescending pushes people away.  Business leaders need to empower, influence, support and guide people.  It is important to promote joy in all that we do.

People are unhappy because they can’t find the answer to their dilemmas.  A business leader  provide strategic planning to assist people who are looking for opportunities.  Honest, real talk not false promises.  The spirit of joy begins with you and it spreads like wild flowers.  The spirit of joy is viral like the internet it is infectious.  Do you possess the joy?
