What if?



What if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phones?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we used it to receive messages?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it as we travelled?
What if we used it in case of an emergency?
What if we upgraded to include 24/7 tech service from the Holy Spirit?

Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phones, we don't ever have to worry about our bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill!

Thanks Roy - you are too kind. Over 2 years of almost daily Blogging has given me plenty of practice. Like everything in life there are no effective short cuts if we want to do a proper job - just hard work and putting in the time. As you know I don't beleive in overnight sucess :-)

See you Sunday

Hi Trevor,

Great posting.

Not sure if you saw TP's earlier posting (link below) re Lance Secretan and a quote from his latest book -"What would happen if we looked at a customer and saw the face of God in them? To most people it sounds like a lofty idea. But if you see the face of God in a flower, why wouldn't you see it in the face of a customer?"

Keep up the great stuff!

Hi Jeff - Hope you are well.

Thanks for that. Yes I did see the posting and made some comments on Tom’s Blog

David Greeff is a Christian Minister currently working in Namibia and a close friend of Annie and me. David suggested some modern day Beatitudes to apply to business and you can read about that on Simplicity Blog at this link

I would value your view Jeff.

Trevor,

Sorry, I didn't read the comments in TP's post. Just did.))

I've met Lance Secretan after his presentation to a conference of Coaches I attended a few years ago. I'd have never guessed he was the guy behind Manpower.

Maybe this was in a previous life for him or something.

Trevor Gay said...

Thanks Jeff - why would you have not imagined him as Manpower founder?

His idea of seeing God in the face of the customer sounds great - if only it were true in many companies.

If some of the people we have to deal with are seeing God in when they look at me as a customer I have to assume they are non-believers :-)
