Recruit your family on the basis of your God-given assignment. When you discover what God sent you into the world to accomplish, it becomes a foundation for recruitment in your relationships. You draw a line in the sand and it becomes a filter. In that line, you have your beliefs, convictions, principles, values and also your mission.
Anybody whose connection with you is not contributing to the fulfillment of your mission is a distraction. That person will assassinate your identity unintentionally. He will reduce your impact inadvertently. Regardless of possible good intentions, anybody who is not assigned to you by destiny – by reason of the fact that your mission is their mission – will destroy your impact in this world.
So you must make your mission an important foundation and filter for deciding who becomes a part of your life. Personally, the same people in my family are the same people in my business, and also the same people in my ministry. If you want to be very effective, don’t do otherwise. Apply this principle to your family, business, ministry, or any other enterprise you want to build.
Study every great man; they all have this in common. It’s the principle of focus in your relationships. Don’t separate your business from your ministry and family. Don’t make that distinction. You’re in this world for an assignment; and then, there’s a community of people devoted to that assignment.
The bible says:
“Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: ‘Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. Then I said, ‘Here I am-it is written about me in the scroll- I have come to do your will, O God.’”
~ Hebrews 10: 5-7
‘A body you prepared for me’ is the people that God has assigned to assist you in your mission; that’s your family. Focus on these relationships and you will soar to great heights in God.
