Do you put your interest before that of your employees?

Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep" (John 10:11 NASB).

The best business owners will pay an appropriate living wage to staff. If the business can't afford a reasonable wage, keep your salary to a minimum. A shepherd doesn't eat until the sheep are fed, and doesn't rest until the sheep are safe. In return, the sheep become loyal, and don't run away. They appreciate the security and genuine care offered by the shepherd. Like a shepherd, it's OK to eat well and have a nice home, but not at the expense of the flock. Your staff will be loyal.
