Living In the RED
I am going to start a daily or close to daily very short message on “Living in the Red”
The aim is directed to our daily lives when it comes to business, family and friends. I am going to use the Words of Jesus that are usually found in RED when you read them in the Bible. In the business world “being in the RED” means you are operating in a LOSS, it’s not a good thing. It’s all about the BLACK – operating in a profit.
I believe it is scriptural for us to live and lead successful lives, there is nothing wrong with profit in the work place. In fact I will go on to say the we should as followers of Jesus be the most successful people on the planet. BUT Jesus said this in Matthew 16: What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?
And this is where living in the RED comes into play. Live in the LOSS of the world, by that I mean greed, arrogance, in it for just the money, etc…. So as we lose ourselves of the world we gain our soul. Being successful is not about how much money you can get, how big or a house you can buy, how nice of a car you can drive. It’s all about what kind of DIFFERENCE you can make in this world and what you leave behind when you leave this world…….. LOVE and wisdom that people have gained from your life.
If you conduct your life in such a positive and loving way you will not only be successful but you will be a person people are drawn to, want to follow and want to design their lives after.
Everything I write will be from words in Red and I will try to bring it into our world when it comes to business, family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and school mates.
