We empower others to grow when they can see a living example. Nothing is more discouraging than a person who gives good advice but sets a poor example. On the other hand, nothing can be more encouraging or inspiring than a person who lives the life he or she talks about.
Level 4 stewards internally recognize the importance of being who you say you are. Personal integrity has a tremendous impact on our own lives and those around us. In my early 30’s, as a young husband and father, I made a decision I would not teach or speak publicly about principles I was not practicing in my own life.
This idea to be transparent in my public life has help me to set positive examples of faithful stewardship in how I prioritize my time, develop my God- given gifts, care for my body-temple and invest my financial resources. Spending quality time with my spouse, attending my children and grandchildren events, exercising and eating healthy foods, budgeting our personal finances, along with setting business goals has required me to consider who I am and the example I’m leaving others to follow.
We welcome you to post your comments on ways you can become a better steward of your wealth.
