Being a Christian and being wealthy can seem like an oxymoron. I confess I have struggled with money and faith.
As a Christian should I give it all away and go live a life like Mother Teresa?
Or as a Christian, how do I recognize my gift of serving others through education and business?
Could it be that the Bible is the best business book ever written?
Today, I will share a bit of my story of how becoming a Christian helped me to grow wealth like never before.
>> [02:41] I have always been focused on success thinking. Whether I am teaching future engineers, working with professionals, or helping others start companies, I am always focused on ways to help them become successful.
>> [05:44] Our culture connects wealth with evil. These messages are powerful in music, movies, the news, social media, and even in schools. So Christian wealth seems an oxymoron.
>> [13:05] I started to become service-oriented and think a lot about how I treated and served my customer (and my boss).
>> [19:08] I begin to see my gifts. What I thought I was good at was wrong and the source of a lot of my struggle. I found my gift and served better knowing it.
>> [23:01] The work I did was becoming more valuable because I was using my gifts and not being timid and hiding them. I paid attention to the needs of others, saw a place I could serve, and served.
