Marketplace Ministry "Loving the Unlovable"
One of the keys to doing marketplace ministry is asking God to give you a love for the people you work with. Man this is tough sometimes. People can be so doggone difficult. They can be lazy, unreliable, argumentative, deceptive, gossipy, and flat out stupid. How you handle these kind of people is a real sign of the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life. The world's way of leadership writes people off and pushes them down. Jesus Christ models a different way to lead. The way of love and service. Jesus wasn't a pushover, but he wasn't a 'push over' either. He loved the unlovable and gave grace to the needy. Lead like Him and your ministry in the marketplace will begin to flourish.
