For those of you who are parents on the call, you will know that your children are a number one priority. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, if your children need you, you drop everything you are doing to be there for them.
There is a connection between parents and children that is so powerful, that causes people to go the extra mile.
This is how God views us and there is nothing he would not do for us, in the context of who he is. He proved that by coming to live amongst us, being crucified on a cross to take the burden of our sin, so that through his sacrifice we could have eternal life. We are his number priority.
We should live a life of gratitude as we acknowledge the extent of the gift that was given to us. There are so many people in the church that live a life of wanting more things or better situations. They fail to recognize the blessing of where they are at that moment and being thankful for it. Now I am not saying to better yourself is a wrong thing, but if it consumes you and that is all you think about, that in itself can become an idol in your life.
We need to understand that if we put God first as a priority in our lives, just as he has done for us, then these things will be added anyway:
Mat 6:25 Stop Worrying
“That’s why I’m telling you to stop worrying about your life—what you will eat or what you will drink—or about your body—what you will wear. Life is more than food, isn’t it, and the body more than clothing?
Mat 6:26 Look at the birds in the sky. They don’t plant or harvest or gather food into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are more valuable than they are, aren’t you?
Mat 6:27 Can any of you add a single hour to the length of your life by worrying?
Mat 6:28 And why do you worry about clothes? Consider the lilies in the field and how they grow. They don’t work or spin yarn,
Mat 6:29 but I tell you that not even Solomon in all of his splendor was clothed like one of them.
Mat 6:30 Now if that is the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, won’t he clothe you much better—you who have little faith?
Mat 6:31 “So don’t ever worry by saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’
Mat 6:32 because it is the unbelievers who are eager for all those things. Surely your heavenly Father knows that you need all of them!
Mat 6:33 But first be concerned about God’s kingdom and his righteousness, and all of these things will be provided for you as well.
Mat 6:34 So never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
God understands that in this life’s journey we need to move from one stage of life to another and people will be looking at ways to better themselves. Actually improving your life is a biblical principle, however, he wants to know where our loyalty lays. Do we really love him for who he is or are we just out for what we can get.
There many people that like being associated with other people because they can use them as a means to step up the ladder, not because they genuinely like being around them. They just see them as enablers. This is not the right motive and is quite manipulative. God see the motive of the heart and judges accordingly:
Jer 17:9 The Deceitfulness of the Human Heart
“The heart is more deceitful than anything.
It is incurable--
who can know it?
Jer 17:10 I am the Lord who searches the heart,
who tests the inner depths
to give to each person
according to what he deserves,
according to the fruit of his deeds.
If we have God as our priority he will be Lord over lives and that Adamic nature, which is in all of us will be kept under control.
The beauty about putting God first is, all of these things that we need, he has already taken care of.
Parallel Business Principals
What should be your number priority in building your Reliv business? Without a shadow of a doubt, it should be the service of others. Whether or not you are talking about customers or business partners, their service should be top of the list.
If all you see them is as £ or $ signs, then you will never grow a long term sustainable business.
The beauty about the Reliv system is it really filters away the people over time who do not have the right motives, because the action that are required to plug into the Reliv system will challenge people and those who are not willing to serve others in the right way will eventually go.
In order to serve correctly you have to allow yourself to be taught correctly and then you will need to teach others correctly. You lead by example and you lead from the front.
