Taken as a whole, Proverbs 16:3 (Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed) is telling us that when we genuinely devote our work to the real Boss, over time, God will transform our mindset. He’ll change the way we view management and He’ll inoculate us from compromising His will on the job.
