Just a Little Patience!

If you don’t know who Gary Vaynerchuk is, let me introduce you: Gary is an entrepreneur, social media consultant, wine connoisseur (and salesman), and a big time NY Jets fan. His first book Crush It was a great read. Gary’s core message: find something you love, work hard, then work some more, and you can make a difference. Anyone can.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of trying to translate business principles into ministry all the time – there’s been plenty of that going down for the last few decades with not much to show. But I’m a big fan of Gary – his passion and bluntness are compelling. He posted a video today that many of us in ministry (particularly church planters!) would do well to heed.

If what he’s saying is true in the business world where it all comes down to our effort and a financial bottom line, how much more is this true when we serve the sovereign Lord of creation, by the power of his spirit, with a goal of lives being transformed by the gospel?

  1. “Lord, grant me patience and I want it NOW!” How many times have you prayed a prayer like that? I know I have, many times. It is hard to wait on God’s timing, but I still believe that prayers are answered and I do have to constantly pray for patience and peace while I anticipate God’s answer.

  2. I don’t agree with everything in this blog post, but you do make some very good points. Im very interested in this topic and I myself do alot of research as well. Either way it was a well thoughtout and nice read so I figured I would leave you a comment. Feel free to check out my website sometime and let me know what you think.

  3. I’d should examine with you here. Which is not one thing I normally do! I get pleasure from reading a put up that may make folks think. Additionally, thanks for allowing me to remark!
