We live a world full of distractions, there has been no time in history where people have had access to so much information. In the past people had to search long and hard to find certain things, where as today they have access to it at the push of a button.
Children are growing up a lot faster simply because of the information they have access too. The world is a very different place, than it was say 20 years ago.
There is so much instant entertainment people are saturated with choice, ‘On Demand’ this and that. Our world has been conditioned for instant gratification, which feeds into the impatient part of us that makes us impulsive.
This has a knock on effect on people’s lifestyles and character development; there is no longer an appreciation of the process of attainment of things, so people have and ‘Easy Come Easy Go’ type of attitude. People are not looking for God because they have become their own little gods, with nothing but their own agenda’s in mind.
Pleasure is everywhere, so forget about commitment! Sex is everywhere from the subtle innuendo’s in children’s programs, through to the blatant demonstration in our advertising. The conditioning towards the demonic is now to such an extent, that there are countless semi series and films glamorizing it, shows like Lucifer, Powers, Dominion, to name a few.
This is all fulfilling scripture right before our eyes:
The increase of knowledge was predicted as well as the busyness of people and the global access people would have to travel diverse places:
Dan 12:2 Many of those who are sleeping in the dust of the earth will awaken—some to life everlasting, and some to disgrace and everlasting contempt.
Dan 12:3 Those who manifest wisdom will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who turn many to righteousness will shine like the stars for ever and ever.
Dan 12:4 Now as for you, Daniel, roll up your scroll and seal your words until the time of the end. Many will rush around while knowledge increases.’”
The flip side to this is, technology has allowed the knowledge of the gospel to increase and people are able to travel all over the world delivering the message of the Good News. There is so much available information about the things of God, that no can plead ignorance.
God uses the advancements of technology for his glory.
We live in the world Timothy spoke about:
2Ti 3:1 What People will be Like in the Last Days
You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2Ti 3:2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 unfeeling, uncooperative, slanderous, degenerate, brutal, hateful of what is good,
2Ti 3:4 traitors, reckless, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
However all is not lost because the truth of God is setting people free everyday, this is why our lives should be living, walking testimonies of God’s goodness. We should display God’s abundance in every aspect of our lives, so that the world can see there is a better way.
So we should remain strong in the Lord because the victory is already his!
Parallel Business Principles
There are so many things to distract someone away from building theit Reliv business, from the general challenges of life, to the negative people that you come across. So in order to build your business successfully, you have to be fully committed to building it.
That is not to say someone cannot make a couple of hundreds pounds/dollars per month, but in order to make a decent cheque, it is going to take consistency, persistency and determination. Which is no different to anything in life that you are doing where you want success, whether business, education, family, relationships or ministry.
The thing that will kill a person’s business every time is distraction, this is why it is so important for a person to plug into the Reliv system because it counteracts the distractions and keeps you focused.
