The Strategy of God: Business People

One of the greatest joys I get to experience in my life is watching the “epiphanies” that people experience when they realize that the very thing that makes them seem unusual, weird — or even crazy — to the people around them… is actually God’s design.

Business people in the Kingdom of God have been […]

Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
