As Career seekers… Leaders…. and Men-of-the-Hour….we MUST have a tool-box that is overflowing …. BOUNTIFUL …and super-abundant. Our leaders MUST have a bumper-crop of ideas…as one is used…another waiting in line, to be used. Our leaders must have ideas, plans….ready and waiting… and their execution must be inexhaustible.
Some years ago, while consulting with a major/regional heavy equipment dealer…. I came up with an idea called: BOBB. It was an Acronym, standing for: Bring-Our-Business-Back. We referred to BOBB as if it were a ‘real person’…and to us… he was. We even gave it a FACE.
I had a ‘bag of ideas’ that was bottomless. I was always ready. If one wants to be the leader of the pack, then he must have a POA (Plan-Of-ACTION) ready to go…with no down-time. As Leaders, we come by ideas…both… BOUNTIFULLY… naturally.
The Apostle Paul tells us in… 2 Corinthians 9:6 – The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. And Solomon says in… Psalms 116:7 – Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
In todays ‘encounters’... we had the likes of Steve Jobs as the Cornucopia of Worldly Bounty….but in the ‘totality of life’… we have Jesus Christ as the ‘ultimate PROVIDER.’
What better LEADER do we have than Our Lord God, Jesus Christ? Jesus was the Cornucopia… The basket of summer fruit served as tangible evidence of God’s faithfulness to deliver them. Its existence stands as firm proof that Jesus was “able to provide… exceedingly, and abundantly… above all that we ask… or think.”
Jesus gave the ‘ultimate gift’ of life… His own. He promises paradise… in bountiful proportions…a land of ‘milk and honey.’ In John 14:2… Jesus says: Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe in Me as well. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into My presence, so that you also may be where I am.…
Imagine… Jesus has a specific ‘place in Heaven’ for each of us. All that He asks as that we ‘believe in Him’… confess our sins, and repent.
…. Many blessings, as we all seek the “Bountifulness’ of Heaven… cjlb…1/29/2018
