Many ways your culture shows up:
1. In the things you permit
What you tolerate you cannot change. What do you permit in your presence?
2. In the quality of your life and work .
Heaven has a culture of excellence.
3. In your environment.
Many times God will keep you away from a big house because you need to learn to manage a small one. Cleanliness and order is key.
(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
Philippians 3:18-19 KJV
People think they can walk away from God and succeed.
When I see someone missing services, i see a lone lion. Elephants eat lone lions.
You have three appetites – sex, money, food. That’s a lousy life!
Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
1 Peter 2:11-12 NIV
Your declaration should be, “Hire me, I bring quality to this place.”
Think like Kingdom citizens.
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Luke 17:20-21 KJV
Your culture is not shown by a badge, it is shown by your life.
