Every day we are able to wake up is a blessing and an opportunity for us to have an impact in someone else’s life. We should not take that for granted, but we should maximise the time we have been given.
God gives us time for a reason, we are not just here to fill a space in the universe, but there is a plan and a purpose for our lives:
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Too many people are just surviving, going through life and not fulfilling their true purpose, accepting good instead of experiencing the best.
The enemy of our souls wants us the accept mediocrity, because he knows if he can get us to accept this, we will hold ourselves back.
However Jesus has something else to say:
Joh 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Joh 10:11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
Joh 10:12 But he who is a hireling and not the shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away. And the wolf catches them and scatters the sheep.
Joh 10:13 The hireling flees, because he is a hireling and does not care for the sheep.
Joh 10:14 I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by those who are Mine.
The only way a person is truly going to fulfil their potential in this life is if they have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Outside of Christ a person can feel they are accomplishing things and to this world it may look as if that is the case, but from eternity’s prospective they have not achieved anything:
Mar 4:18 And these are those being sown among thorns; such as hear the Word,
Mar 4:19 and the cares of this world, and the deceit of riches, and the lust about other things entering in, choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful
1Co 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1Co 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Co 2:6 But, we speak wisdom among those who are perfect; yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, that come to nothing.
Jesus re-enforced this with the following parable:
Luk 12:16 And He spoke a parable to them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully.
Luk 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room in which to store my fruits?
Luk 12:18 And he said, I will do this. I will pull down my barns and build bigger ones, and I will store all my fruits and my goods there.
Luk 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years. Take your ease, eat drink and be merry.
Luk 12:20 But God said to him, Fool! This night your soul shall be required of you, then whose shall be those things which you have prepared?
Luk 12:21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.
God wants us to achieve in life and strive for excellence, so that the world can see what can happen to a person that operates in the laws and principals of God. However, he does not give us more so that we can build bigger barns and horde more stuff, he gives us more, so that we can be a blessing to others.
Many times when people want to be blessed financially, the reason why they are not, outside of the fact that they do not do what it takes to develop wealth, but also they have not developed the character to sustain wealth and God knows if they had it, they would move further away from him. As what is more important to God, is seeing a person prosper in their soul than in their pocket:
3Jn 1:2 Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
In our Reliv businesses we need to maximise the time we are given, because each moment we do this, there is the potential we can be helping more people.
Our focus in this business should always be on other people, to see how we can help someone each day.
God wants to bless us in our business however our motives must be right and we cannot hide our true motives from God.
The business model of Network Marketing truly allow us to maximise our time, because it is not just about our efforts but a group of people working together.
God established the wisdom of leverage through Moses when he was leading the children of Israel through the wilderness and he also reinforced it through the Great Commission. By going out and finding people to teach and train, we can have a greater impact, because the sum of the masses is far greater than the sum of the individual.
We can have a serious impact on people’s lives through this business if we just do things properly and have the right focus. The lives we can directly and indirectly touch can be immense.
Does this mean that the journey is going to be a smooth one? No! However the journey will be a very rewarding one, full of personal growth, the development of people skills, the building of life long friendships and the changing of lifestyle.
So have the right motives, trust God, put him first and see what he will do in your business.
