Overcoming a Failing Business

In overcoming a failing business, the first question to answer is, "Did God call you to this business?"  And if He did, the second question is, "Did God change His mind?"

If you find that you are, still, right where God wants you (despite the view), consider a change of scenery.

When a business puts pride and arrogance aside to begin seeking God for their every next step, as the only one who knows every twist and turn of the upcoming economy ...

When they tear down barriers that tear down people, to begin again; understanding that, no matter one's business, when people treat each other like Jesus says to treat them (counting him as the greatest expert in the field) ...

When management remembers the plight of their own humble beginning and struggles to get where they are, then does away with the mindset of being better than anyone else ...

When they then consider their business 'a ministry first' and begin applying tools of unconditional love and acceptance, and follow honest godly principles in all their dealings; not displaying a pretense of self righteousness but true integrity that begins with their own accountability; separating only from people who can not yet do away with the practice of tearing people down ...

When their outreach heads in the direction of reaching as many educational levels and learning styles as possible ...

When the aim is to actually help others become successful in that business endeavor (no matter their ability or the abilities they attain to), realizing that every part matters, every person's seed will multiply ... it will be impossible for a business to fail.

The true seeker seeks the needed Master's Tools, then learns how to effectively apply them (example: ) and thereby realizes success in all related endeavors.

"In God We Trust" is a slogan of proven merit wherein God is bigger than any failing economy.  And more specifically, in any area of attracting people to your called purpose, the best place to start is with a plan that never fails.  But just so you know, it isn't about being a do-gooder (works).  Just pay attention to meet true needs, and God will do the rest.

Charity edifieth. Charity never faileth.
Let all your things be done with charity.

1 Corinthians 8:1, 13:8, 16:14
