Yesterday I wrote about standing up, and then I traveled downtown to the office and gathering with my fellow geeks for the all employee meeting. Since this was scheduled during the USA-Algeria game, I had to position myself where I could be in a place to casually check my phone for progress of the game. However, to my demise, I was in a place where the camera was almost always pointed towards the section I was sitting. So, the World Cup had to wait. ( And I am sure glad that Landon didn’t wait any longer then the 91st minute!)
Anyway, some of our sales guys were talking about how IT effects our sales processes, which was actually very interesting, and then he says something that really impressed me. He says, “this morning when I was reading the Daily Buffet..”. Man that would have been awesome. No, he says “this morning, when I was doing my daily devotional, the verse was from Proverbs 24.” Then we went on to talk about the Proverb and to apply it to some of the things he does each day. I was so impressed that in Corporate America, in front of a worldwide audience, he would mention his daily time with God in such a casual manner. That’s standing up. I hope this gives you a little bit of motivation today to stand up and build your house with wisdom and understanding.
1 Do not envy wicked men,
do not desire their company;
2 for their hearts plot violence,
and their lips talk about making trouble.
3 By wisdom a house is built,
and through understanding it is established;
4 through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.
5 A wise man has great power,
and a man of knowledge increases strength; Proverbs 24:1-5
