1 The Power of God and How it Applies to Business 5 Business Principals for Ethical Success

2 How does God feel about the Rich? “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24 There are people that go to extremes to make money- hurting the environment and others in the process They forget to be charitable Nothing becomes as important to them as developing their business (wealth)- forgetting their families and communities They forget God and think of themselves as more important or greater than God

3 Be Fearless For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 King Saul would not fight Goliath based on Goliath’s reputation When David said he would do it, Saul gave him his special made armor David went with what he knew best & had 5 back up plans He had confidence in God “this day the Lord will deliver you into my hand.” Even though you might be small today, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to take down the giants tomorrow.

4 Think Big Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23-24 Throughout the Bible, God uses ordinary people that had ordinary jobs to do extraordinary things When the Master was going on a trip he left 3 of his servants in charge of different amounts of “talents”. One got 5, one got 2 and the last one got 1. He had distributed them according to the servants abilities. The first two took the talents and invested them doubling what they were given. The last one had buried it in the ground and returned what was given to him. Ephesians 3:20 says that God is “able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”

5 Surround Yourself with Great People “ He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm” Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm” Proverbs 13:20 Know what you want Set a list of core values Set expectations Learn to use the best skills of your best people Share the power, teach Hire people that are happy It’s not important where they have been, it’s about the journey they are on Build a board of people you can brain storm with And when He had called his 12 disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. Matthew 10:1-2

6 Stay Humble “ Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, he shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:6 Never to forget God When you make a mistake, admit it & move past it Keep in mind that repentance does not set you free from consequences Teach by example: think of when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples Learn to receive: do not be so proud that you can’t ask for help Humility does not mean you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less. Ken Blanchard

7 Have Discipline For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline. Timothy 1:7 For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline. Timothy 1:7 List your priorities and set goals Do not give or accept excuses Do not lose focus Be prepared to make sacrifices Make sure the time you are spending is meaningful Do not use “God’s” will as an excuse. Or the old, “it happens for a reason.”

8 Be Still "Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10 " Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10 Take time to hear your inner voice If you have visions or dreams you cannot shake It’s something that brings glory to God “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declared the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” Jeremiah 29:11
