Is the Lord in the Storm with You?

482px-Rembrandt_Christ_in_the_Storm_on_the_Lake_of_GalileeA good friend of mine, brother in the Lord, mentor, teacher, prayer warrior and encourager in spiritual matters all, Morris Salge, has taken on the task of writing some devotionals for disciples of Christ in business primarily (but life in general).  I have had the distinct honor of getting to review these devotionals and help a bit with the website.  It is an honor, but it has also been hard, as they are not for those who are not seeking Him above earthly treasures.  If you want devotionals that tickle the ears and make you giggle skip these.  If you want to find and hear the Lord above all the noise around us, then dig in and prepare to be challenged.

Is the Lord in the Storm with you?  

Are you listening to Him or are you trying to steer the boat?

Christ, the Disciple and Business

website: formerly/http://stormlord.org

 

The posts linked to this website all focus on the realities established Christians face in the business world.  By “established.” I mean Christians whose faith is at least 4-5 years old regardless of whether they have grown spiritually or not.  Those who have grown, I hope, will find affirmation in the essays.  Those 4-5 years or more past salvation that have not grown will find loving challenges written to them.

Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?” His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers — and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

Hat/Tip to orenbus & TruckinMike on Ron Paul Forums for the video lead with this comment #16 on thread:
Oh I have a video for you, you may have already seen it that explains some of this behavior regarding the Law of Diffusion of Innovations:

13 1/2 % = early adopters
34% = early majority
34% = late majority
16% = laggards
Example begins at the 11:00 minute mark:
