This was me trying to convince a friend of mine that there is undeniable evidence that Jesus was real. This was me a few years ago trying to convince individuals to join me in my business, and I see this still going on to this very day in Religion and in Business. The question I ask is WHY if even Jesus did not convince people to listen to the truth. This may spark up a great debate or I may not get any comments on this blog post. Either way, it must be read.
God did not place us here to live a safe life, he put us here to live a dangerous life for him, led by him. When you are doing your God-given talent and reaching many people for Christ why should you conform and not get radical for him? Well in Business and Religion it must stop, and we must start to get radical.
Matthew 10:14 states this; Any if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town.
Do you think that was harsh to say? Imagine, if you are trying to continuously convince someone of something and you keep doing it over and over, you are fighting a loosing battle. Now that you see that convincing is not of your making here are 5 reasons why you should avoid them;
- You will stress
- You will waste time
- You will play it over in your head
- You may lose sleep
- You will harbor ill feelings
Convincing will make you appear desperate to the other person and give them the upper hand in the conversation, so it better to just walk away and once you have stated all the facts, and provided credible resources you have done your job.
Their two things that I am very passionate about and that is bringing people from Darkness to light spiritually and also via business.
Becoming a fisher of men/women for God is similar to my Network marketing business but on a way more permanent level. When fishing for God, its eternal life we are speaking about and nothing is more important that.
When fishing to show people how they can earn a living by sharing something they are passionate about, and get paid to do so based off of leverage is also important because many people don’t know or understand how to make a living in this Profession. So we must continue to break down Barriers for God’s Kingdom and also continue to Educate the masses on multiple streams of income.
Question: Have you tried to convince someone of something before? How did it turn out?
