Who sits at your table of influence?

Passage: Philippians 1:23-24 (NIV)

I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me. Philippians 1:23-24 (NIV)

Faith grounded friendship produces JOY!

Who sits at your table of influence?

Alan Ahlgrim adaptation of Bob Shank’s The Master’s Program: 

  • The Work Chair: These are the ones who inspire you to improve both in your efficiency and your effectiveness. Who sharpens you?
  • The Wisdom Chair: Who takes you deeper by asking you uncommon questions and by modeling uncommon candor?  Who deepens you?
  • The Well-Being Chair: Who blesses and uplifts you? They may share their resources but, even more, their hearts, their homes, and even their good humor. Who enriches you?
  • The “W.O.O.” Chair: W.O.O. is an abbreviation for “winning others over” and refers to those who connect you with others who are good for you and fun for you. Who connects you?

My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;

He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.  

Psalm 101:6 (NASB)
