Gathering at Home with Coworkers
One of the things Martha and I have learned is the power of the kitchen table. When people are surrounded by good food and friends, conversation happens. Good solid transparent conversations can happen when our feet are under the table. We learned this years ago and the power of the kitchen table never subsides.
Let me encourage you first to put that power into play with your own family.
Have dinner together every night. Watch it change the atmosphere in your household. Invite your neighbors over for dinner, just like they used to in the old days and watch it change the atmosphere in your neighborhood.
Now for the THROW DOWN.
Invite your coworkers and their families over for dinner. Develop genuine relationships over dinner with them and watch it transform your workplace. Workplaces are so easy to remain at a comfortable distance with people. When you break down that distance with good food over the kitchen table you will see the power of God transform those that you love on in your home.
Take a look at your kitchen table tonight when you get home. Is it cluttered and piled high with junk or is it a welcoming place for conversation and the eating of good food. Clean it off and start inviting people to your table. Watch the Lord do amazing work in your life and the lives you share your table with. This is an iWork4Him plan of action.
1 Corinthians 10:31 English Standard Version (ESV)
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
