Adin could mean “dainty, effeminate or delicate…” The arguable weakness of the feminine gender has caused many to exclude them from enterprise. But this is wrong. Your team should embrace all genders and particularly encourage and empower women to take their rightful place in leadership and to support leaders. It is more important to accept the diversity of your workforce and encourage different styles rather than seek to force fit all your people into a “tough” mold. Ideas are not always nurtured in human strength, nor are the best decisions taken by the brawny … Be watchful in excluding any because of a physical weakness or visible disability. God has a way of using those we would ordinarily disregard to shame our intellect and maximize His glory in situation.
Diversity should not mean to embrace or encourage sin or unbiblical lifestyles… but to give everyone a chance to be and play their God ordained role. Some may be a bit slower, even more delicate and sensitive … be especially kind to these. They are God’s children …remember … and He owns it all and is sovereign over your business.
Verses for further meditation
Exodus 35:25-26; Esther 2:17
Thoughts for Business and the work place
Diversity in the workplace maximizes productivity as it includes all gifts.
Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, teach us to see as you see. Amen.
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
