CHECKS AND BALANCES FOR MARKETPLACE MINISTRY

“Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you lookout not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:3-4)

This scripture is basically telling us to look for the giftings in those we’re associated with, and to attempt to elevate them (or bring them into prominence, productivity, and power) … even at our own expense.

This, of course, has as a prerequisite that we have contributed to – or are contributing to – their spiritual well being. We want to promote those with spiritual integrity, not based upon what we have heard about them from others, but what we have experienced and know to be true in our own relationships and associations with them.

Network marketing is often likened to discipleship. However any models, business or otherwise, of TRUE Biblical discipleship have to adhere to the SAME core endeavor: to make people more like Christ. We are to make disciples of Christ … not our own disciples. Making our own disciples produces two bad fruits of inbreeding:

Greed; and,
Pretended love.

We are NOT to use people: either in business or ministry. To recruit people and then abandon them because they don’t produce is selfish: it is pure greed. True, some people don’t want to pay the price to develop spiritually or materially. They have simply not learned:

To count the cost; and/or,
To be good stewards.

However, to dump these people, or to relinquish our responsibility to help them because of inefficiency, weakness, or lack of skills on their part is not following the admonition of scripture. We have only to look at the example of our Lord and His relationship to the Apostle Peter. Even after Peter denied Jesus three times, our Lord didn’t forget about Peter’s wellbeing. He had an angel emphasize a personal message to Peter of His resurrection (Mark 16:7).

Humility is both the great leveler and the great standard. If we want to accurately assess our own giftings, and thereby help others to our maximum abilities, we should NOT think of ourselves more highly than what an accurate appraisal represents. We should gauge ourselves based upon the measure of FAITH God has given us. (Romans 12:3)

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Don’t use and dump.

Remember: “You reap what you sow.” Help develop those people in your domain.

Don’t operate based upon selfish desire. Operate out of true love.

Teach people to count the cost of their decision, endeavor, or enterprise; tell ALL the facts.

Be a good steward in your associations which God has arranged for you.

Teach those in your domain the responsibilities and rewards of stewardship.

Measure yourself by the FAITH God has given you and be humble in your self -appraisal.

I trust this teaching has helped you.
