Next week, God willing, I will be scheduling a webinar exclusively for those of you interested in learning God’s ways, methods, principles, etc., for business and life as modeled in Scripture and demonstrated in the things God has made (nature).
The webinar will provide details of the MPI Christian Business Institute including course materials, schedule and pricing. I will tell you more about that in coming days but for now, I want to share with you a short video clip we recorded this week in the Redwood National Forest.
I chose the redwood forest because it contains some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. Old speaks to me of the ancient paths and tall speaks of business growth and towering success. The MPI Christian Business Institute is all about asking God for the ancient paths where the good way is, (Jer 6:16) because that is where you find rest for your souls.
I’m betting most of you don’t know what factor more than anything else causes these trees to grow so strong and tall. It’s water. Without high annual rainfall, these trees would not excel in their growth. Scripturally speaking, water is the Word. The Word reveals knowledge, is embedded with wisdom and releases understanding. In business terms, the Word is information that reveals knowledge, contains wisdom and releases understanding.
LSU did a study of Live Oak trees…
They planted quite a few; all about 18 inches in height and measured their growth a year later. With half of the group, in addition to whatever rainfall may come their way, they made sure there was a constant drip of water to their roots for the entire year.
At the end of the year, the trees that relied exclusively on whatever water came their way had grown an additional six inches to a height of about two feet. But the trees that receive a steady flow of water (information, training) were now eight feet tall! They grew six and a half feet compared to just six inches of their counterparts!
Please. Please. Please. Here me when I say…
The biggest key to growth is a steady, disciplined learning program. You’ve heard it said that readers are leaders. It’s true. If you join the MPI Christian Business Institute, you will begin taking in a flow of information that will cause strong, enduring growth, much like the redwood tree. I will be sharing more videos with you over the next week so be watching your inbox.
The water I will be serving you comes from a pure source. My two major textbooks are the book of His Word and the book of His works (natural law). Let me know here if you want to receive more information about this Christian Business Institute we intend to launch this month. I hope you will join me.
In the meantime, be fruitful and multiply!
