There is one practice that I believe is vital for every BAM entrepreneur: To evaluate your life to make sure you are keeping the “main thing” the “main thing.” One of the biggest criticism of those doing BAM is that they get more focused on making dollars than on making disciples.
Do you want to make millions?
The very nature of business is that it should be a profit making entity. It should be your desire to do real business which means to make money. Generating a million dollars in sales would be amazing, however is that the main goal?
We do want to make millions, however, I believe it is millions of something else.
The main goal
When Jesus sent out his disciples, he sent them out to make something! It wasn’t dollars… “Go into all the world and make disciples,” is what Jesus said, in Matt 28. Earlier in Matthew, he actually told them not to worry about what they will eat or drink…but instead told them to preach the good news to the whole world.
There is a key rule that applies to the lost. I like to call it the 100% rule! This rule states that, “100% of all lost people are headed for an eternity in hell!” Not the 80/20 rule but 100%! But there is an answer…JESUS! Instead of making more commissions, we need to follow the Great Commission and make D’s – Disciples.
Ask yourself today, “Am I keeping the main thing the main thing?” If not, take some time to refocus your BAM life!
