Generosity & Intentionality


Throughout this course, we have heard from Kevin how to build a noble business on the foundation of care. We care for customers when we treat them as image bearers and work with excellence. We care for employees when we give them opportunities to grow. Kevin concludes the course in this session talking about how to care your neighborhood and keep care at the forefront of your business. 


Describe the neighborhood where you work. What does it look like? What is the demographic of the people who live there? What other business operate there? Why do you operate there?

Kevin said, “Business leaders have a real opportunity to extend Gods kingdom throughout the week. Ministry does not end or begin on Sundays…we can participate in what God is doing in the world.” 

What values govern the kingdom of God? How does your organization extend those values to others? What is made better in your community because your company operates there?

Your organization has an opportunity to make a real difference in the neighborhood where you work, making it a better place for residents and the business community alike. Pray and trust that God would reveal needs and lead you to new opportunities for service. Now that Kevin has walked through who and what to care for through our business, listen as he shares how you can be more intentional as a leader to ensure it happens. 



Kevin described care as the central value at his company, comparing it to the horn of a steering wheel. He said that he and his leaders “hit the care horn” often to ensure they and their teams operate out of care on a daily basis.  

Care may not be your central value, but how could you “hit the care horn” to evaluate if leaders and staff are caring for customers, quality, each other, and the community? When could you have a time of sharing, exhorting, and correcting?

Kevin said that care—or any value—has to be modeled by you and leaders before it can be expected from employees. Why is that the case? How have you seen employees model your attitude and behaviors in the past?

We read in Scripture that when Jesus returns, He will make all things new, restoring creation to its original design. Your business, every business, is inherently noble when it is used to make life better and more beautiful for others. It is even more God-honoring when it cares for people over profit and embodies the kingdom to come. Like Kevin, may we lead that kind of noble business built on a foundation of care for others and the world.
