Helping Hand for My Business - Dr. Steve Davis

helping handAs my business grew, and the number of employees increased, I also ran into situations that I was not prepared for.

My company was making more money than ever, and yet I had almost nothing left at the end of the month, after paying my employees and the rent for my business, and all of the other expenses. I could not imagine what I was doing wrong.
Full Gospel is a place where the younger and the more mature can meet together.

Again, FGBMF was a resource that the Lord used. One of the older retired men (he was in his mid 70’s) in the fellowship came to visit my business and spent the day with me, asking me questions, and making observations. He was wealthy, but explained to me how he got started in business, and that he and his wife lived in a small tent in the woods during his first two years of business! He explained to me the mistakes he made, and that he saw that I also was making, which was why I was working more than 80 hours per week, but would have almost no money left over to pay my own salary after paying all of my business expenses.

These friendships bring increase into the business environment and also to the Kingdom of God.

Ecclesiastes 10:10 says this: “If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.” The counsel I received from the older businessman gave me the edge I needed to grow my business in the right direction.
Using his counsel and experience, I was able to reorganize my business and support my family better, and also was able to give more for the work of God.

Proverbs 4:5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Proverbs 16:16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
