Not every business built for God is glamorous, but they are all glorious. A believer in business, working out and walking out his or her calling in Christ is powerful. This is true even when we are called to something in which we have no background. Success comes when we are willing to be used. 

In today’s episode, I chatted with Felipe Simoes, owner of O Mestre Barbershop, located in Curitiba, PR, Brazil. His barbershop is a living example of how an ordinary place can be a place of ministry. Felipe talks about how, as people are there at his barbershop for 30 minutes or so, the opportunity to edify and encourage them is always available. We also discuss how attitude and skill, combined with faithfulness in small things, yield eternal rewards.

“You’re shaping beards, you’re shaping hair. But the person has to stay with you for thirty minutes… we’re sharing life… [and people are] being comforted with that, because they are passing through the same things you are passing through.”
