Colossians 4:5-6 (NLT)
5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
As a businessman, Mayowa was also a very effective prophet and evangelist to people he had personal dealings with. He knew how to make the most of opportunities, and he was wise in the way he did this. He understood that he was on a mission in the marketplace, so he was very careful with the things he said. He ensured that his words were always seasoned with salt; he spoke no idle words, but spoke well calculated words that wisely conveyed the wisdom (salt) of God’s kingdom. He also had a very attractive and gracious personality. People who dealt with him were interested in what he had to say because of this.
Having the pilgrim’s mindset was the reason Mayowa was not subdued by the corruption and love of mammon he met in the ‘marketplace’.
As believers in Christ Jesus, one mentality we must always have is that we are pilgrims in this world, and no matter where God has placed us, we are representatives of Christ. This is our first and most important assignment. It even trumps making money for the businessman. This is the only way to be effective in fulfilling our kingdom mandate and assignments. Many have failed because they forgot their first identity and assignment in the marketplace.
As you go into today, remember that you have been entrusted with the grace to represent Christ wherever He has placed you.
Prayer: Lord, please help me represent you well in my place of work. Amen.
