I'm glad you found the post fascinating, but I wonder how many Americans actually share my views. I know many take offense when people say that America is no longer a Christian nation, but at the very least it seems to be Christian in name only. The American attitude towards business, productivity, and the accumulation of wealth is much different than the rest of the world. As a nation, we seem to value these higher than health, family, and spiritual well-being.
Wow -I really enjoyed your articles and comments. I believe you are right on with the current situation in our country. We are buried in debt to keep the latest fashion in clothes and cars etc but cant give to tithes and missions or even to help someone in need, we will stand at a ballgame for hours but cant at church for 5 minutes,we will sit through through 2 and 3 hour @#$%^&*movies but cant sit in church for 1 , we spend more time reading,texting and talking, etc but never spend anytime in God`s Word or prayer. Sad – I have been guilty too
Grace & Heart is a direct sales company that markets themselves as “a community of friends founded on passion and purpose.” They sell faith-inspired sterling silver and genuine stone jewelry through their consultants, which are called “Bravehearts.” The jewelry pieces range from $29 to $200, so there is something for everyone and for every occasion.

In previous posts, I laid the Biblical foundation for why I believe God does call us to our vocations. In January, I will be writing a series of posts that delve much deeper into this notion of calling and explore the various callings that Paul teaches us about in the Bible – including our vocational calling. I think it will bring more clarity to this topic, and I look forward to your thoughts and feedback on it.
Answer: An entrepreneur is someone who creates and runs a new business for profit by selling products or services. An entrepreneur is usually a self-motivated person who is willing to work hard and do whatever is necessary to get the business off the ground. Entrepreneurs must be willing to face some lean times in the beginning if it takes a while for the business to become profitable. Entrepreneurship requires initiative, motivation, sacrifice, and patience—all traits that the Bible encourages (Galatians 5:22; 1 Peter 1:5–7).
To work as a consultant, you must purchase one of their start-up kits, priced at $395, $595, or $795. There is a monthly fee for the website, but it is free for the first three to six months, depending on the kit you choose to buy. Premier Designs offers a credit line to their consultants, meaning that the consultants can charge the products to an account and pay for it later when they begin to earn money. While you are not required to have an inventory of jewelry, it can be helpful to sell more at home shows.

Madam C.J. Walker is considered one of America’s first women to become a self-made millionaire. Born to former slaves, Walker faced a series of difficulties early in life. These included poverty, the death of her parents, and several failed marriages. Eventually she moved to Colorado and found work as a sales agent, which eventually inspired her to start her own business. She began to sell her own line of hair care products designed specifically for African-American women. At her peak, she ran a host of factories both in the United States and abroad. Walker spent a good deal of her life advocating for the rights of African-Americans and gave away much of her earnings both during her life and at her death. Recipients included the NAACP, the YMCA and YWCA, historical preservation projects, and civil rights causes.

There’s a comic strip that I shared a while back called “How to Over-Spiritualize Everything” that makes the same point you make in your comments. We can, I can, have a tendency to make things sound more spiritual than they really are; however, we are also guilty of not realizing the spiritual significance in things that surround us because we consider it too mundane for God to care about.
