Check out this video Chick-fil-A and its founder Truett Cathy, who built a billion dollar business on Biblical principles. This is a powerful and practical example of Matthew 6:33 in business, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.”
What's your billion dollar idea?
Although we are called to be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we don't think and operate like the world does, many Christian entrepreneurs still struggle between pursuing purpose vs. pursuing provision. The anxious pursuit of financial gain sometimes trumps our pursuit of God and the specific assignment He's given us. Some of us even justify our busy-body-ness with sayings like "Pray like it all depends on God, but work like it all depends on you." The truth is if we really trusted God and listened to everything He's telling us, some of our busy work would be eliminated. And although we must work diligently, we should be working more purposefully and peacefully if we are to get the results that God wants us to have in business and life.
Are you toiling when you should be resting? God gives spiritual and emotional rest to His children (Psalm 127:2). Using a beautiful backdrop in Miami, in the video I discuss below how to find purpose and provision through God’s peace.
Today the world is mourning the loss of a giant in the technology industry, Steve Jobs. The innovations he inspired as the CEO of Apple changed the way people listened to music, watched videos, operated cell phones, and utilized computers. His impact reaches far outside the technology industry. His fans and foes alike have praised him with words such as “genius”, “visionary”, “legend”, and “iMortal”. The fingerprints of his legacy will be visible for decades to come (and maybe longer).
You may never get famous, invent an iconic device, or build a spectacular product. Regardless, you still have the opportunity and ability to have a spectacular impact and change somebody’s life with your love, skills, and ideas. Because the truth is when you die God is going to ask you what you did with the time, talents, money, relationships, and other assets that He entrusted to you. How will you answer Him?
What will you do to change the world?
