Wallace E. Johnson, president of Holiday Inns and one of America’s most successful builders once said, “I always keep on a card in my billfold the following verses and refer to them frequently: ‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened‘” (Matthew 7:7-8).
“These verses are among God’s greatest promises. Yet they are a little one-sided. They indicate a philosophy of receiving but not of giving. One day as my wife, Alma, and I were seeking God’s guidance for a personal problem, I came across the following verse which has since been a daily reminder to me of what my responsibility as a businessman is to God: ‘Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth‘” (2 Timothy 2:15).
“Since then I have measured my actions against the phrase: ‘A workman that needeth not be ashamed.'”
FAITH ON THE INSIDE + WORKS ON THE OUTSIDE = SUCCESSFUL LIFE!
