Make God THE Priority

Don’t make God a priority make Him THE priority in 2012! Here are some ways to do that!

1. Start each day with reading the Bible, worship and prayer.

2. Live out what you read and learn from your Bible reading time.

3. Begin the first month of the year with a special emphasis on prayer and fasting. Join People’s Church for our 14 days of prayer and fasting beginning January 15.

4. Worship at a Bible teaching church faithfully.

5. Serve in a ministry in your local church.

6. Build relationships and friendships with other Christians through a small group, Sunday school class, Wednesday night Bible studies, etc.

7. Honor God with your finances by living within your means, telling every dollar where to go before you spend it (budget), tithe (return 10 percent to God through the local church) where you worship, give offerings (discipline yourself to give above the Lord’s tithe to those in need), save for the emergencies and the future.

8. Walk in forgiveness. People will hurt, offend or do something you don’t like in 2012. Be quick to forgive.

9. Live a life of humility by not thinking more highly of yourself than you ought to.

10. Love people by being kind, respectful, patient and do all you can do to keep peace.

How To Get A Raise pt. 2

9. Be so good at what you do that you are irreplaceable. Continue to grow and develop your skills.

10. Don’t use your current job as a stepping stone for another job. Your employer wants to know that you are all in. That doesn’t mean you’ll be there forever but it should be a calling not a career.

11. Get along with the people at your work place. Be a likable person that people enjoy working with.

12. Submit to authority. Don’t buck authority and do your own thing and then expect to be rewarded.

13. Add value to the company by sharing good ideas and thoughts on how the company can improve.

14. Be respectful to your boss and to other employees. You can disagree without being a jerk.

15. Go the extra mile: Every boss knows those employees who are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. You want to be known as an employee who is willing to go the extra mile.

16. Put the team before your dream. Some employees are all about themselves. They are selfish and self-centered. Be known as an employee who puts the team before your own dream.

17. Work every day as if you’re working for the Lord! Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and God will lift you up. Remember, promotions and raises ultimately come from the Lord! Honor God!

How To Get A Raise At Your Job

1. Have a positive and good attitude

2. Do your job well

3. Meet deadlines

4. Manage stressful seasons without whining and complaining

5. Exceed expectations: Some people do what’s asked of them, but it’s rare for a person to exceed what’s expected

6. Treat your job like it’s a calling not a career. Calling meaning: I’m all in, heart and soul and Career meaning: I’m here for a paycheck

7. Use social media to be positive about your life and work not to complain about your life, job, boss or co-workers

8. Help your boss and company accomplish their goals
