Your Biggest ROI

Some call it “the Protestant work ethic.”  It’s that sultry siren that whispers, “If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me.”

The prophets of this self-powered gospel are everywhere.  A thousand dollars will buy you a day of their time at a splashy seminar.  Or a gift of seventy-five dollars will get you their DVD during a telethon.

Then it’s all up to you.

What’s driving all your efforts?  The need for a better job?  A thirst for fame?  A cry for significance?

King Solomon speaks from antiquity, “Mortals make elaborate plans, but God has the last word.  Make your motions and cast your votes, but God has the final say."

Where will you get your best return on investment?
