“If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly,  if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your forefathers for ever and ever”
Jeremiah 7:5-7 (NIV)

Yesterday, our group head sent message to all our email subscribers about the look of our newly changed signage in the head office; the response of the employees was positive- many of whom expressed appreciation and even congratulated the team behind the work. 

Our company for the past few years went the ups and downs of the stiff competition in the banking industry; the turn over of the new management this year faces overwhelming expectation from the clients, shareholders, and employees. Everyone is hoping for a better leadership style, new innovation, better products and more quality service.

“A change of sign is a sign of change”, this has been the outcry of the new management since the last three months when they conceptualized for the rebranding; hence, a change in the signage is one step in fulfilling more improvements coming in the next few months.

Today’s Scripture teaches us that there is reward in sincere changes that we do. But take note that it’s about positive change, too. If we ponder Jeremiah 7:5-7, it is specific about changing our ways and actions without compromising our good relationship with people around us particularly the strangers, orphans, and widows; also, when we keep peace, and do not worship idols we will receive life as well as salvation.

 “Only change doesn’t change” quote to some is a cliche; but whatever change we want to have either in career or life in general, recognizing that change is part of growth, then we will be able to appreciate more to change- for the better.

Prayer:

Lord, thank you for all changes that happen in my everyday life- for new people I meet and for new challenges, thank you.

Today, I surrender to You all my worries, doubts and fear; let all Your will be done. All these I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
