I am honored, and at the same time humbled, as I hold the position of Chief Executive Officer of Beckwith Electric. Let me tell you why I am so proud to lead Beckwith Electric by sharing with you why we are in business.
First, there are people worldwide in the electric power industry who want to spend hard-earned money on equipment that works. They want to buy it at a reasonable price. They want to receive it sometime before they’ve forgotten why they wanted it. And if it breaks, they want it fixed quickly with no excuse. QUALITY – PRICE – DELIVERY – SERVICE.
Second, there’s a crew of folks here in Largo, Florida that want to do just that for them.
There are those in this world who believe that the only way to get ahead is to look out for #1 first. God’s Word says – NOT SO! We are to humbly serve others first. We are to treat the other guy like we want to be treated. We’re to consider his welfare above our own. None of us meet these goals to perfection, but if these aren’t our goals, then we don’t meet them at all.
A business, subject to the Lord, based on these goals cannot fail. God won’t let it. In fact, He promises, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.”
So, when we regard our customers’ needs more highly than our own and act accordingly, then God blesses the business more abundantly than we could ever imagine. If we look out only for #1, that’s exactly how many we’ve got on our side. When we care for others first to the Glory of God, we have all the creation power of the universe on our side. May we at Beckwith Electric always keep this foremost in our minds.
