Integrity Moments - April 7, 2017

 

Use It All

My friend, Phil, has read many stories of very successful people who started from nothing, like Ben Carson, David Green (Hobby Lobby), and Truett Cathy (Chick Fil A). Phil shared with me that what they all had in common was that these leaders knew how to make the most from what they had.

These men lived out Proverbs 12:27 and it worked. Proverbs 12:27 says: Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find.

Phil believes successful people avoid waste. Phil recommends that if you want to be highly successful, ask yourself these two questions:

  1. Look around. Are you making the most from what you have?, and
  2. Although your resources don’t seem like much, will you trust God to make it work?
