So you are called to serve as a creative Kingdom entrepreneur? What an awesome assignment! Kingdom entrepreneurs are individuals who are God-centered and led in their business for the purpose of having Kingdom impact in the marketplace. Everyone has talent or gift; however, like a diamond it must be uncovered. As a Kingdom entrepreneur I want to share with you five keys to help you prosper creatively. Follow these keys and you can't go wrong.
Key 1. Focus
Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33)
Kingdom entrepreneurs are able to focus consistently because they have their focus in order. When the Kingdom of God and His righteousness are the priority, one's focus is sharp and relentless.
Key 2. Study
Study to show yourself approved a workman that need not be ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15).
The best part of being prepared for Kingdom entrepreneurship is studying. Study your field. Dedicate time everyday to study. Connect with others in your area of specialty by joining groups, communities, and subscribing to eNewsletters.
Key 3. Vision
Write the vision make it plain, that he who runs may read it (Habakkuk 2:2).
Without vision people perish. Your vision should be so clear that whoever runs can read it without stopping. Vision is like a billboard, short, simple, and impactful. Vision is developed in prayer. See Key 1.
Key 4. Diligence
Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men (Proverbs 22:29).
Without doubt this scripture leaves no room for misunderstanding. Those who are diligent and skillful in his (or her) business will stand before kings. Creative Kingdom entrepreneurs MAKE time to practice their craft. Be diligent.
Key 5. Integrity
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Luke 6:31).
In all that you do as creative Kingdom entrepreneurs be honest. Be a person of integrity. Remember the Golden Rule to do to others what you would have them do to you and you will be known as one who is fair, just, and upright.
