“As wise as serpents”
Presented by Robert Fullerton CPA.
Founder of RVF Consulting LLC
Before Jesus sent His disciples out into the world to preach the gospel (Mathew 10:16), He warned that there were “wolves” out there who would take any opportunity to devour them. The Lord’s guiding wisdom to His “sheep” then, was to be “as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.”
As Christian business owners we find ourselves in similar position today. We are competing in a world in which corruption, dishonesty and greed reign supreme (“Greed is good”). As the Lord’s modern day sheep, we may purpose in our hearts to run our businesses with Biblical integrity and “provide things honest in the sight of all men” (Romans 12:17). Our competitors however, are not so constrained, and many would not hesitate to use any means necessary, legal or otherwise, to get an advantage over us and put us out of business.
In this presentation we will try to answer two questions:
1) What are the structural elements of sound business strategy, and
2) How can we rely on God’s grace and inspiration to become as “wise as serpents.”
- What are the key elements of an effective business strategtic plan.
- God’s Strategic Plan for our businesses.
- How to to incorporate God’s wisdom in our planning process.
