Distraction-Free Godpreneurs – Part 5: A Strong Foundation

Updated: Jan 29, 2021

I’m convinced that I stay “on purpose” because I read the Bible every morning, first thing before anything.

There’s a strong foundation being built in my life. Additionally, there’s a framework I’m staying within. Both the foundation and framework help me grow within my calling to stay focused on my purpose.

If we Godpreneurs don’t have this strong foundation, we might be able to build a small business, but it could never grow because the foundation is bad.

If we entrepreneurs don’t have the right framework around our calling, we’ll also fall for anything coming our way. That framework is:

  1. Connect regularly with your CEO (God)

  2. Involve other Christian entrepreneurs in your growth (community)

  3. Control your business thoughts (get on my daily email devotional)

  4. Control your media consumption (get off social media, news, and email)

  5. Say “NO” to opportunities that don’t make your spirit dance.

We Godpreneurs want to build a strong business on a firm foundation like Matthew wrote about in Jesus’ words:

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." (Matthew 7:24‭-‬25 NIV)

If you’re constantly going from idea to idea, and not finding meaning and purpose in your unique calling, either the foundation is bad, or the framework is bad…or both.
