Last Sunday during the sharing time at church, a young lady stood up and showed everyone the simple beaded cross key chain her employer had given her. Mary is a new Christian, and she told her Christian employer that she felt it was difficult to talk about her faith with others. So her employer gave her a small cross made from 5 different colored beads, and taught her how to, using the colors, share her faith with others.
The helper was really touched by her employer's kindness, and I was amazed by the synergy that can happen when an employer is concerned about their helper's relationship with God. Another helper shared that her employer gives her money for transportation and lunch every Sunday, because they want her to attend church! Wow!
We believe that a vibrant relationship with God makes us better people and better workers. It's great when employers also share this belief and put their faith into action.
