That title don’t lie folks! This business man found a way for God to ACTUALLY own his business - I don’t know about you, but I think that is pretty awesome! I love reading books that show our God’s greatness, and this book is one of those!
So I awhile back I got this book from the ATI Family Conference we go to every year, I was pretty excited to read it but stuff came up and I only recently got around to reading it.
Let's just say, I really liked the book, it had a great message and so many wonderful stories of how God has worked in Stanley Tam's life. You can certainly see God's hand throughout this story of Stan's life.
On the matter of the quality of writing... I've read better, yes. I think it was written exactly how it was told by Stan, so just imagine someone sitting down and retelling you a story (here and there stepping away from the story to talk about what the Bible says and all) and you'll get a pretty good idea of this book's writing, but it get's the message across. And since it is a real story, that's the sort of writing I'd expect.
This book calls you to remember that your business, money, and whatever else, is safest in God's care. There is no safer place for you to rest the things that are important to you than in our Father's hand.
It also reminds you that we are supposed to do everything we do for the glory of God. God belongs in EVERYTHING we do! I hate it when I hear someone say that "God and business don't go together" or that you shouldn't bring God up in your job. Being Christians, God belongs in everything we do, whether it be our job or our business. He belongs in it, because our first and foremost job is to spread the Gospel and bring glory to God.
I don't want to do anything that God is not in, I don't want to embark on a journey without Him leading me, I don't want to do any sort of work unless my King stands beside me.
I recommend this book for anyone looking to see God's greatness!
Here's some of my favorite verses on the matter:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Commit thy works unto the Lord , and thy thoughts shall be established.
He must increase, but I must decrease.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:  So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
