From Pastoral Work to Marketplace

“What is it like to be an entrepreneur?”

This is a question that I’ve often been asked since I made the switch from pastoral work to  entrepreneurship. I started a training and consultancy company in 2014 with the purpose of equipping people with an understanding of what they are good at and a knowledge of how they can apply their strengths in various life situations.

Being an entrepreneur comes with many challenges. The pursuit of success in the marketplace has revealed my areas of lack on a new level of intensity than I had ever experienced while I was in full-time ministry. Now, I feel an immense pressure to feed the family because a regular salary is no longer a given.  In the first few months, there was zero income. There were countless times where negative thoughts played out in my mind and I found myself asking, “Am I cut out for this?”

Having been in ministry for almost a decade, I must admit that there was a real fear that my skills-set would be irrelevant in the marketplace. Perhaps the fear played out too much in my mind because I found myself constantly doubting my own abilities. I wasn’t sure if was a matter of my mentality or my competence. I was struggling to craft solid business plans, getting leads, closing sales, budgeting, the list goes on. In the pursuit of success, I discovered that the idea of what is most important to me easily became muddled.

“Who do I serve?”

This question at its heart reveals the core motivations of why we do what we do. Examining the idea of who I serve, helped me reflect on my inner motivations. Perhaps the model answer to this question is “Jesus Christ” but an honest response required me to search my heart in a deeper way. I found that I was far from where I wanted to be.

For a sustained period, I experienced a tremendous amount of anxiety and the stress became evident in my outward behavior. Upon deeper reflection, I knew that my inner motivations had swayed. I realised that had not been serving the God who has loved me and called me into the marketplace. Instead, I was self-serving – I wanted to succeed for selfish reasons. These motivations were subtle but real. The discovery that I had believed many lies about myself revealed that they were mostly related to the different areas of lack I felt in my heart.

Lie 1: I am not good enough
I found this lie to be one of the easiest to believe. I might even go so  far as to say that this lie is probably the one everyone wrestles with, no matter how competent or experienced a person might be.


  • Self-doubt
  • Beating ourselves up (even before others give feedback)

I remember giving a task to a particular staff in the company. Lisa (not her real name) came back with the task complete but before I even gave any feedback, she began criticising herself  by saying that she had given her best but the quality of work was probably not up to the mark. She went on to apologise for the effort. It was a voice I was familiar with and perpetuated the same lie I myself had struggled with – the lie that says, “I am not good enough”.

The fact of the matter was that the task was very well done. I shared about the lie I thought that Lisa had believed in and asked her develop  a new belief based on the question, “Who do we serve?”

God’s truth: I serve a God who gave us His BEST

John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

If God the Father has given His best for each one of us, knowing that not everyone might accept His gift, then it encourages us to give our BEST (attitude) regardless of the results.

Lie 2: My worth is dependent on my performance
This is an extension of the first lie. Many people are trapped in the idea that our worth is based on performance and results.


  • The inability to recover quickly from a bad result.

Instead, a person wallows in self-pity and allows negative thoughts to fester.

There was a client who had requested for a re-run of a program delivered by my company but he made a specific request for me to be replaced because he (the client) felt that my performance as a trainer was not up to the mark. That was a huge blow to me and I lost my confidence for a few months.

This is ironic because according to the Strengths Finder test we conduct, I have a strength called, “Self-Assurance”. People with this strength tend to display an inner confidence and have an unusually high propensity for risk-taking. Statistically, this is also the rarest strength found amongst Singaporeans. I realised that believing in this lie disempowered my personal strength and caused me to doubt my own calling and identity.

God’s truth: I serve a God who loves us unconditionally

Romans 5:8 – “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

If God chooses to love and accept me in spite of my imperfections, this shows that my worth is not dependent on my performance. Instead, my worth is dependent on what Jesus has done for me on the cross. His sacrifice has infinite value. Coming back to this truth helped me regain my confidence.

Lie 3: I don’t have any influence in this place
This lie is an extension to the first two lies but goes even deeper. Believing that we do not hold any influence over our environment is, in essence, the same as saying that the gospel has no impact on our profession.

In the beginning, when business was slow, I began dwelling on how my years in ministry and my deep love for God were irrelevant to my success in the marketplace. I allowed myself to entertain the idea that I had little or no influence  because I had not acquired the business experience necessary for me to excel in the marketplace.

Going back to The Beatitudes helped me recalibrate my thinking and enabled me to understand that the gospel impacts work paradoxically. God has given me a call to be the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world”. 

There was a top regional leader in an MNC, who thanked me for a coaching session which resulted in the removal of some old mindsets. Eventually, that led to a reconciliation of a broken relationship between the leader and a subordinate. This feedback was a much needed encouragement and I felt the seed of influence within my heart starting to grow.

God’s truth: I serve the King of kings and Lord of lords

Revelation 17:14 – “These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.”

Upon the realization of this truth, I began to cultivate the attitude of being thankful. I started to pray and trust that my influence is a work of God. My role and purpose is to give God glory in whatever I do. Over time, God began to open up doors for me to influence families, teachers and students as well as top leaders in Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. I have also had the privilege of traveling to different nations to run my Strengths programs and equip others.

What are some lies you have believed in? Why don’t you ask God to take you on a journey of examining your inner motivations?

You might want to consider starting with this question – “Who do I serve?”

Worship in Our Workplace

Recently, our Senior Pastor Daniel Wee spoke about what true worship is: an act of love, a burnt offering, something we give because we love Him and we can anticipate His pleasure. This article explores how we can take this idea of worship into our workplaces through simple and practical ways.

The bible tells us to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. We are also called to love our neighbour as we do ourselves. One of the most straightforward ideas of worship lies in living out this idea of loving our neighbour; it is being that good Samaritan to the wounded man. We can anticipate that God will be glorified and delighted when we give our best to love our neighbours at work.

So, how can we worship God through loving our neighbour in our workplace?

1. Intentionally create space to relate

Because our God is a relational God, our worship must therefore be reflected in an active lifestyle of loving our neighbours. Many Christians are content to accept the idea of worship as mainly to give our best piece of “work” to God. This perspective must be challenged.

As Christians, we must be intentional in loving others. Especially in Singapore, where busyness is the norm, it is often challenging to create space to love our neighbours. This space is created by intentionally apportioning time to relate to our co-workers. It is creating a capacity in our hearts to listen to others’ needs. It is carving out time for others. It is finding ways to reduce the end-to-end busyness so that we can have time to attend to others, to help when there is a need. Most Christians do not find it hard to help others when they have time to spare. It is when they are so packed with activities (this includes ministry activities) that they end up neglecting real needs.

Let us seek to have deeper and more personal conversations with colleagues. Be a listening ear. Share stories that build faith – testimonials that give hope. Do acts of kindness that show love.

Often, fulfilling experiences can come out of simple but deep conversations with a fellow colleague. My wife, Michelle, recently shared with me a delightful experience she had and it was simply having a deep conversation on a bus ride home with her colleague.

Create space to relate.

2. Show Grace when it is least expected

Grace is extravagant. Grace is the idea of the Father eagerly waiting for the prodigal son to return home and to give him the best when the son least expects it. Grace is that gift when a person least expects one.

When you are upset and feel like doing something that resembles a tit for tat, pause and take a deep breath. Choose instead to respond in the opposite spirit. Respond in love and kindness.

Interestingly, I have noticed that people seem to always remember the moments when someone at work goes the extra mile to help with a kind deed. That is love in action. That is extending grace; going beyond what is expected. Beyond the “this is my job” mentality.

Be mindful to extend grace.

3. Pray for our co-workers

There is no better Kingdom-minded way of worshiping God in our workplace than by infusing prayer into every part of our work.

Praying for a colleague at the right moment when we sense that something is weighing on their hearts is a powerful way of obeying the Spirit’s prompting. One of the ways of being led by the Spirit is to be mindful of the opportunity to minister to others through prayer.

The colleague might respond with a simple “thank you” but the work has been done in the heart by the Holy Spirit.

4. Encourage others with kind words

“Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”

Proverbs 16:24

Many may consider that speaking kind words might seem more of a Western than an Asian concept. But, the Bible does encourage us to do more of that.

A practical action would be to catch someone doing something right and to specifically give encouraging words that highlight the right action. Rather than a generic “good job”, be specific and describe the action or attitude. For example, “I saw you restraining yourself when the easier way was to lash out. Good job!”

Learning to catch someone doing good is learning to be observant of Christ-like behavior.

5. Help those in trouble

“The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble”

Psalm 9:9

Bullying happens frequently at the workplace. How are you responding to bullying in the workplace?

While the answer is not often straightforward, the one thing we can do is to show concern for those who feel marginalized. Be a listening ear; pray with this person and ask God to replace  negative emotions with His compassion. You can also stand up for the injustice when the Holy Spirit prompts you.

6. Honor your leaders

Most of us will usually take issue with these 3 types of leaders we perceive:

  • Incompetent leaders
  • Uncaring leaders
  • Dishonest leaders

While our perceptions might not reflect the truth, they affect our attitudes and our responses.

Honoring the incompetent leader means employing a Christ-like attitude as we empower our leaders to be successful. Find ways to build them up rather than tear them down. Think about what they are good at rather than what they are bad at. Play to our leaders’ strengths. Eventually, we reap what we sow when we become leaders ourselves.

Honoring the uncaring leader means we respond in kindness and compassion. Rather than complaining about their lack of love and care, we initiate and show kindness to these leaders through small acts of love, encouraging words and prayer.

Honoring the dishonest leader does not mean agreeing with malpractice. Honoring means giving value to the person rather than the behavior. This means that we learn to see with the eyes of compassion and believe that God will be the merciful judge. We pray for wisdom to find ways to influence. We pray for courage to reject any dishonest dealings. We pray for restraint from bad mouthing our leader and try our best not to speak ill of a person whom Jesus passionately loves.

7. Practice forgiveness

Forgiveness is a matter of the heart. Many of us find it difficult to apologize and say sorry. It is often even harder to release forgiveness to those who have hurt us. True worship teaches us that the surrendering of our hearts is pleasing to God.

We can worship God by practicing forgiveness and keeping short accounts. Forgiveness teaches us about the condition of our hearts and reveals our ability to render God as King.

In conclusion… 

These points have come about about from my own struggles in practising the concept of worship in our workplace. I have learnt over the years is that true worship is really about being a living sacrifice. God does not expect us to be perfect. He sees our struggles and He receives our burnt offerings.

Overcoming the Deficit

My 4-year-old son, Lucas often asks me: “Why does 弟弟 (younger brother) have this [toy] but I don’t?” This recurring question caught my attention recently because I could relate it to many similar experiences at work. In my job as a professional trainer helping people discover and apply their strengths, I have often experienced this particular mindset that seems to exist among many who have attended my StrengthsFinder workshops. This mentality expresses itself most naturally by focusing on what we do not have rather than what we have. I like to define this as a ‘deficit thinking mentality’.

The ‘deficit thinking mentality’ causes many to be in discontent. I find it fascinating, whenever I run workshops, to observe the different behaviours of my participants and the types of questions that they pose. Those with a ‘deficit’ mindset will more likely than not complain about their lack of strengths and some may even reject their own strengths as they compare themselves with the strengths of others.

Rather than focusing on what strengths they already have and how they can apply them, many choose instead to focus their thoughts on what they do not have, therefore empowering the fear of lack.

Interestingly, I haven’t observed any particular type of person who is prone to complain of the lack. The ‘deficit thinking mentality’ appears to span across both genders, age groups, and even tiers of leadership positions.

In my preparation for 2017, I found myself wondering about the extent to which the ‘deficit thinking mentality’ has stopped us from living the abundant life that Jesus has given. It is probably reasonable to suggest that there are many Christians who empower this mindset and struggle with the fear of lack as a result. I, for one, am guilty of allowing this fear to manifest in different areas of my life.

I believe that the ‘deficit thinking mentality’ is robbing many (myself included) from experiencing God’s abundant grace and providence in our lives. The Bible talks a lot about this idea of lack, and many passages reveal that it is common for people to struggle with this mindset. One of the earliest passages that clearly highlights this human condition can be found in Exodus 16.

Exodus 16:15-20
When the sons of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, “It is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat. This is what the LORD has commanded, ‘Gather of it every man as much as he should eat; you shall take an omer apiece according to the number of persons each of you has in his tent.'” The sons of Israel did so, and some gathered much and some little. When they measured it with an omer, he who had gathered much had no excess, and he who had gathered little had no lack; every man gathered as much as he should eat.  Moses said to them, “Let no man leave any of it until morning.” But they did not listen to Moses, and some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and became foul; and Moses was angry with them.

The passage clearly shows that many Israelites had a fear of lack and gathered more food than they needed. Where did this fear come from? This question is not easy to answer. What seems clearer to me is:  since the early days of biblical history, we humans have struggled with a fear of lack and the ‘deficit thinking mentality’. If we desire to delete the deficit thinking in both our hearts and minds, and trust in God wholeheartedly, then a good question to ponder on would be: “How have I manifested this fear of lack in my own life?”

As we enter into 2017, wondering about the plans that God may have in store for us for the rest of this year, may I suggest that we start first by giving thanks for all that God has given us – both big and small. I believe that the simple yet powerful solution to counter this fear of lack is in the practice of giving thanks.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” It might be helpful to set aside time to list down all the different things we want to give thanks for. As we do this, we are also intentionally creating capacity in our hearts to draw us back to the heart of our generous Father in Heaven who gives to His children beyond measure. The practice of giving thanks also prepares our hearts for the right posture to put our faith in God as our Provider. Naturally, this process helps us to combat the ‘deficit thinking mentality’ and the natural outcome is often a heart that will also create space to appreciate others.

As we count our blessings, we develop a faith that looks forward with a hope and a future.

How much are you looking forward to 2017? The answer to this question will likely correlate with how much you have been thankful for in 2016. If you haven’t done so already, start preparing for the rest of 2017 by writing down a whole list of things you can give thanks to God for today!

Wishing everyone a blessed year ahead!

Making The Connection

During my 10 years as a full-time Youth Pastor, I sought primarily to help young people shape their inner lives the way I felt mine was shaped – by focusing on what we thought was wrong with human beings. To me, it was about knowing the sinful nature of man and learning to lean on God’s grace and mercy. I have many stories about my own insecurities and fears, and how God has transformed my life.

I have come to realize now, that focusing on the ‘bad’ is not just inadequate but seems to have a detrimental effect especially when engaging people for the purpose of discipleship.

Many of us (myself included) are often quick to point out the shortcomings of others and then offer solutions (inner healing, counseling, etc.) to overcome them. When we do this, we fall short of empowering people to use their gifts and talents. We may be skilled at explaining the sinful nature of man but what about describing what a victorious Christian life should look like? As a leader, I have discovered that revealing the truth about our human weakness is definitely necessary but to focus on those weaknesses is hardly the encouragement that one needs.

An article in the Business Times on 01 August 2016 highlighted that more than half of Singapore companies have experienced staff who are physically present but mentally absent. According to the research, this phenomenon, termed “inner resignation” has been observed in 57 per cent of Singapore businesses.

Employee Engagement is a key issue in society today. It seems that in church, it is no different. It is not a wild idea to suggest that only a small proportion of church members feel engaged.

In my personal observation, our obsession with human weakness has hindered us in engaging and discipling people in the workforce as well as in church. Similarly in biological families, an increasing number of young people feel the disconnect at home because parents repeatedly only highlight what is wrong. Affirmations and encouragements appear to be a rarity.

Here’s another alarming fact. The World Health Organization has indicated that by 2020, depression will be the number 1 disease with the greatest negative impact on the global community. We are well on the way because depression currently sits at number 2 and by 2020, many of our young people will become adults.

There is a growing realization that in order to know how to overcome depression, we must study people who live meaningful, fulfilled and happy lives. Understanding the factors that are needed to help people stay positive has prompted the development of a branch of psychology known as “positive psychology”.

So, what if we focus on what’s right with people?

In the beginning of this year, I realized that I have spent the last 10 years focused on looking at the ‘wrong’ in people. I decided that I needed to realign my focus on what is right instead and I’ve since left ministry to set up my own company. I now help others discover their strengths through programs on employee engagement and student development using a tool called Strengthsfinder.

I pray that a paradigm shift takes place in our mindsets because I strongly believe that helping people discover what’s right with them is just as important as discovering what’s wrong. Looking at what’s right is critical in learning how to live a victorious life.

With this new outlook, how can we journey forward together as a church?

Focusing on strengths

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul describes the body of Christ, how we are all made uniquely and how we need one another to function to capacity. Each one of us is empowered with God-given talents and gifts to make a difference and be the salt and light in our community.

By focusing on our strengths, we start to respect the strengths that different individuals have so that we can go deeper in living out the concept of the body of Christ. In this way, we can build a culture of honour within the body of Christ. By learning to appreciate our unique talents, we can serve one another and even respectfully admonish and give constructive feedback. We earn that right to speak because people know what they are appreciated for. By focusing on our strengths, we catch people doing good as opposed to only catching people doing wrong.

“A leader needs to know his strengths as a carpenter knows his tools, or a physician knows the instruments at her disposal. What great leaders have in common is that each truly knows his or her strengths – and call on the right strength at the right time.” – the late Donald Clifton, author of Strengths-based Leadership.

Cultivate an attitude of gratefulness

The bible commands us to give thanks to God. Giving thanks changes our inner attitudes and helps us to be positive and hopeful in Christ. In a society where there is so much malice, bitterness and anger, cultivating a thankful heart helps us to appreciate one another. It also allows us to love and to receive love.

Try this exercise of giving thanks, 15 minutes a week. Do this with your family, do this with your friends. Do this for 10 consecutive weeks and observe the effects.

Questions for self-reflection:

  • From a scale of 0-10, how aware are you of your own strengths?
  • Reflect and think about how you are using your strengths for each of these areas: marriage, family, work, ministry.
  • How can you be more intentional in cultivating a thankful heart?

Being A Father

Parenting is hard work. But working hard and seeing the fruits of our labour, often gives us a deep sense of satisfaction.

I became a father for the first time to my son, Lucas in December 2012. The journey to fatherhood made me sweat and gave me tears but I will never exchange the experience for anything. Being a first-time dad is amazing, it has given me many new revelations about God the Father. This article shares some of what I’ve learnt and my reflections in this journey of fatherhood.


1. Enjoying God’s presence

There was this one evening when I was lying on the bed with Lucas. He was just lying next to me, smiling at me. I realized then that I really enjoy my son’s presence as well as his smile, and I think the feeling was mutual. We were simply lying down side by side, there was no need to do anything else but enjoy each other’s presence. I suddenly had a simple thought – God, as a Father, desires to be very close to His children. He willingly draws close to me without me needing to do anything. When I express my joy to be in His presence, God the Father enjoys it very much!


2. God’s Commitment towards me

As I reflect about my lifelong commitment to Lucas, I realized that it is different from my commitment to my wife, Michelle. I made a conscious decision to choose Michelle as my wife. When we were dating, I saw how we could love one another and I also saw that she committed herself to loving me. That gave me the assurance to make a commitment to marriage. For Lucas, on the other hand, I am committed to loving him without knowing if he will respond in appreciation. When Jesus died on the cross, his commitment to each human being could be unappreciated, but He did it anyway. I finally understand the depth of God’s commitment to us! It is not about needing love to be reciprocated. It is simply giving and not expecting anything back in return. The unconditional love of God can often be paralleled to the unconditional love of a parent towards their child.


3. Love from the Community 

It was not easy for me, neither was it easy for Michelle when we became first-time parents but the love we were shown from the community around us made a huge difference. The different people who stepped in to help us when we were struggling showed me how the different members of the body of Christ work together to care, bless and give to one another. From gifts, to quality time; encouraging words, to acts of service, we were greatly blessed. Being around a loving community helped us tremendously and I believe that this was a demonstration of true Christian fellowship. Being a Christian is not just about attending church but also about joyfully serving and blessing others. I’m so thankful for the people who gave generously!


4. Being ready for solid food 

When I was feeding Lucas his milk one evening, it dawned upon me that he was drinking milk because he was not yet ready for solids. I was reminded of this particular verse from the bible:

Dear brothers and sisters, when I was with you I couldn’t talk to you as I would to spiritual people. I had to talk as though you belonged to this world or as though you were infants in Christ. I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger. And you still aren’t ready, for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature?

[1 Corinthians 3:1-3 NLT]

I had a thought. For a Christian, moving towards solid food represents progress and growth – moving away from worldly values and towards a desire to know God and God’s work. In that aspect, many Christians are not ready for solid food because they still allow themselves to be controlled by their sinful passions. A point of reflection for me was, “As a Christian, am I ready for solid food or am I actually still drinking milk and totally unaware of my need for solids?”


5. Ignorance to sin

There was another time when Lucas pooped in the middle of the night. I woke up (feeling really groggy) and needed to change his diapers. As I was cleaning him up, I saw him staring at me totally ignorant of the smell and the mess he had created. Worst of all, he had just taken away my precious sleep and time of rest. Very annoying indeed! This made me reflect on God’s grace in my life. I have often been guilty of creating a big mess with my sin and yet, he helps me clean it up every single time.


6. Recognizing God’s voice

It gives me such joy knowing that Lucas recognizes me when I call out to him. The joy and satisfaction is indescribable. I can imagine how God must feel when I recognize His presence and understand what He is speaking to me about. As a father, I often yearn to know that Lucas understands what I’m saying to him. Hearing God’s voice is critical in our Christian journey. When Lucas recognizes my voice, he can be directed and he can feel safe knowing that I am present. As his father, I get so much joy from knowing that Lucas is listening to my voice. To recognize God and to know His voice can make a huge difference to both myself and God the Father. I now have a deeper revelation about God’s command to hide His Word in my heart. Knowing what God is saying through His Word  is akin to Lucas understanding and listening to my instructions.


7. The Still Small Voice of God

The bible mentions that God often speaks in a still small voice. One example is the story in 1 Kings 19 when Elijah heard from God in a voice that was gentle and filled with love. One of the things I love to do when I come back home from work is to go to my son and whisper to him, “Daddy is back. Daddy loves you.” I do that not to get his attention but simply because want to tell him that I love him. I think that God’s voice is like this. Always gentle and caring.


8. God’s Love is Patient

Now that I’m a father, I realize the amount of patience that is needed for parents to calm a fussy baby down. I struggle immensely whenever Lucas cries out in a sustainable high-pitched voice. It takes me so much patience to remain cool and counter his screams with a voice that is both reassuring and calm. This does not always work and his response reminds me of the many times I myself fuss and get upset. I know that when I want to blow my top or to lash out,  God’s gentle voice to calm me down is probably ignored and swept aside. I  now know how patient God is with me. With this knowledge, I yearn to be more  patient especially with people who do not respond to my love. I also yearn to be more sensitive to God’s voice especially in circumstances that may be challenging and upsetting.


I  strongly believe that God does not shortchange us. While I often struggle with the many inconveniences I now have to deal with as a father, I have gained lots of beautiful perspectives that I know I wouldn’t otherwise have received. If you have just become a father or are preparing to be one, I hope your experiences with your child will bless you richly!

Happy Father’s Day!
