Reblog: Christians can learn from the corporate world because…

Jesus is sovereign over everything.
Imagine a Christian working in sales. They meet a potential buyer, they make a call, they arrange a meeting, the do a sales pitch. They really want to make a sale. They’re honest and godly as they do it. They even pray about it – don’t they?
Would you encourage someone to ask for God’s help to “make a sale”? Why not? Isn’t God just as involved in the buyer’s decision to purchase an appliance as he is in a sinner’s decision to come to a gospel event?
A robust sense of God’s sovereignty means that God’s involved in everything. Every decision that every person makes. God’s in it. Its part of God’s plan. Nothing happens without his appointment.
So what’s the point?
Maybe we’d see how much the corporate or non-christian world has to offer us in thinking about reaching people, if we reflected on how much God is involved in that world?
