At my local bookstore I was browsing the clearance section when my eyes caught a glimpse of a book about how to be a successful and prosperous business woman. Picking it up I was disappointed at the vagueness of its contents which explained why it was marked down. The truth is, God's word already tells us how to be prosperous and successful.
"This Book of the Law (the Bible) shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success." -Joshua 1:8.
Probably not the formula you were expecting? If you are wondering how I know this works, this has been my business model since day one where I stepped out on a hunch with only change in a jar, trusted God, and prayed.
