Value of Human Life

Life is a precious gift received from the Lord; therefore each human life is valuable and should be cherished. Throughout the work performed here at Group Two, it is important to ensure the best interests of the lives we impact are considered in our daily actions. Every life matters as we learn in Psalm 139: 13-16,

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them (???Version).

Corporate Responsibility

Here at Group Two, we feel a strong sense of responsibility for the environment and communities around us. To be a good corporate citizen means that our business has a social obligation to the environment that extends beyond profitability (Gibbs, 2012). Matthew 5: 44-45 teaches,

But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust (ESV).

The greatest commandment given to us, other than loving God with all our heart, mind and soul, is to lover others as ourselves.

Global Involvement

It is important for Group Two to practice enlightened self-interest and spread our wings across into the world to help support those who may not have the opportunity to live a decent life otherwise. According to Craciun (2014), “Enlightened self interest seeks to get and keep as long as possible a win-win situation, making all the players to obtain something, and this strategy consolidates stable relations of cooperation, more or less profitable for everybody” (p. 121). Jesus tells us in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (ESV).

Conclusion

In conclusion, our business is built on a set of strong core values based upon work ethics, family values, and above all, a Christian worldview. These values have built a strong foundation for our organization that has allowed us to grow and to help others in the process. Proverbs 16:3 teaches to “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established” (ESV). We have proven that Christian principles and core values can be successfully deployed together to create an organization that prospers through all its endeavors.
