Walking in God’s Favor: I will instruct you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Psalm 32:8 NIV
My truth (Michael) is I was raised in a Christian home and for most of my adult life believed the desire for increase profits and wealth was immoral. After reading Rabbi Daniel Lapin’s book “Thou Shall Prosper” I was inspired to make 3 immediate changes in my attitude regarding wealth.
1. I would begin to believe in the dignity and morality of business success.
2. I would follow the opportunities in life that increases my wealth.
3. I would educate myself in ways that increase my potential to help to others.
My goal was to seek the highest potential for my life. It has made an incredible difference. After making these 3 seemingly small changes I have been motivated to take key leadership roles in my church and the business community, as well as launch a business networking organization www.gg4life.net I now choose to intentionally invest my time and develop my talents wisely in recognition of God’s ownership.
