"It is wise to direct your anger towards problems - not people; to focus your energies on answers - not excuses." - Peter McWilliams
Jesus said, "What a generation! No sense of God! No focus to your lives! How many times do I have to go over these things? (Matthew 17:17, The Message)
The Poor Christian has little to no focus or scattered thinking.
The Rich Christian has tremendous focus on life, purpose, goals, and ideas.
God has designed each one of us with unique talents and abilities. The key is to grow and expand in the areas in which God has gifted us. The world's wealthiest people have capitalized on ONE great idea, for example:
- Robert Allen - Nothing Down (Real Estate)
- Rick Warren - The Purpose Driven Life
- Bill Gates - Operating system and software for the personal computer
- Warren Buffet - Business investing
- Dave Ramsey - Debt freedom
I would encourage you to spend time daily thinking through and writing down ideas that match your interests, education, and knowledge - keep a journal. Read and research ideas that you have; today, we have the awesome power of the Internet to help us!
So what's your one BIG IDEA that can make this world a better place for the Kingdom, and in turn make you a Rich Christian?
