  • STEVEN SCOTT, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT?
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:28.080
  • - WELL WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FAILURE,
  • 00:01:28.100 --> 00:01:31.100
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I WAS.
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:33.000
  • I COULDN'T SUCCEED NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED,
  • 00:01:33.020 --> 00:01:35.020
  • AND I TRIED REALLY HARD.
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:36.250
  • I FLUNKED OUT OF NINE JOBS
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:38.210
  • IN MY FIRST SIX YEARS AFTER COLLEGE.
  • 00:01:38.230 --> 00:01:40.210
  • NOW HAVE ANY OF YOU FLUNKED OUT OF NINE IN SIX?
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:43.230
  • - [AUDIENCE MEMBER] YEAH. - REALLY?
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:45.130
  • I'VE NEVER FOUND ANYBODY THAT FLUNKED OUT OF THAT MANY JOBS.
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:48.130
  • AND I COULDN'T SUCCEED.
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:49.260
  • RIGHT AFTER I LOST MY SIXTH JOB,
  • 00:01:49.280 --> 00:01:52.010
  • I'D BEEN OUT OF COLLEGE FOR ABOUT
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:53.120
  • FOUR AND A HALF YEARS AT THAT POINT,
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:55.070
  • AND GARY SMALLEY, WHO BECAME MY BEST FRIEND IN LIFE,
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:59.020
  • HE WAS VISITING ME, AND I SAID,
  • 00:01:59.040 --> 00:02:00.120
  • "GARY, I DON'T UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:01.190
  • "NO MATTER WHAT I DO I JUST CAN'T SUCCEED.
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:04.180
  • "I KNOW I'M NOT STUPID, MY IQ'S OKAY,
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:07.140
  • "I'M NOT LAZY, EVERY COMPANY I WORK AT,
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:09.180
  • "I'M FIRST IN, LAST OUT.
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:11.030
  • "THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT BEAT ME ON EITHER END ARE SECURITY.
  • 00:02:11.050 --> 00:02:14.090
  • "AND YET I CAN'T SUCCEED.
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:16.040
  • "AND I UNDERSTAND MY CRAFT, WHICH IS MARKETING."
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:18.160
  • I GRADUATED WITH A DEGREE IN MARKETING,
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:20.250
  • BUT NOBODY WOULD KEEP ME FOR MORE THAN,
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:23.060
  • USUALLY FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS, I'D GET FIRED.
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:24.250
  • - OKAY, WHAT WAS IT? WAS IT YOUR ATTITUDE?
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:27.070
  • - I DIDN'T KNOW, THAT'S WHAT I WAS ASKING GARY.
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:29.200
  • - WERE YOU A MEAN GUY? - WHAT AM I DOING?
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.080
  • NO, I MEAN I WAS A PEON IN THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:33.250
  • OF EVERY COMPANY, I MEAN,
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.080
  • I DIDN'T HAVE ANYBODY WORKING FOR ME THAT I WAS BAD TO,
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:37.130
  • I WAS NICE.
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:38.130
  • I JUST WASN'T SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:41.010
  • AND SO GARY SAID, "WELL, LET ME PRAY ABOUT IT."
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:43.180
  • AND I LOVE THAT HE DIDN'T SHOOT FROM THE HIP.
  • 00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:45.180
  • YOU KNOW SO MANY TIMES WE'RE ASKED QUESTIONS,
  • 00:02:45.200 --> 00:02:47.030
  • AND THEN WE INSTANTLY GIVE AN ANSWER.
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.000
  • GARY WAS WISER THAN THAT.
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:50.230
  • HE SAID, "LET ME PRAY ABOUT IT."
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:52.130
  • THE NEXT MORNING HE CAME TO BREAKFAST
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:54.010
  • AND HE SAYS, "I FOUND THE ANSWER!"
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:56.160
  • AND I SAID, "TO WHAT?"
  • 00:02:56.180 --> 00:02:57.280
  • BECAUSE I'M REALLY ADD,
  • 00:02:58.000 --> 00:02:59.190
  • SO I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT QUESTION WE WERE ANSWERING NOW.
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:02.050
  • HE SAYS, "YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW, YOU WANTED TO KNOW HOW"
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:03.220
  • "YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, WHAT'S THE ANSWER?"
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:05.220
  • HE SAID, "HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE SMARTER
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:08.180
  • "THAN ALL OF YOUR BOSSES?"
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:10.000
  • AND I WAS 26 AT THE TIME AND I SAID, "YEAH RIGHT."
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:13.020
  • HE SAID, "NO THERE'S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO FOR TWO YEARS,
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:15.110
  • "AND IN TWO YEARS YOU'LL BE WISER THAN ALL YOUR BOSSES,
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:19.160
  • "AND IN FIVE YEARS YOU'LL PROBABLY BE A MILLIONAIRE."
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:22.160
  • - WOW.
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:23.140
  • - AND THAT REALLY MADE ME LAUGH
  • 00:03:23.160 --> 00:03:24.250
  • BECAUSE I WAS SO BROKE I DIDN'T HAVE GROCERY MONEY,
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:27.070
  • TWO WOMEN ANONYMOUSLY LEFT GROCERIES ON OUR DOORSTEP.
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:30.120
  • I LATER FOUND OUT WHO IT WAS, TOOK ME 30 YEARS.
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:32.140
  • BUT THEY LEFT GROCERIES ON OUR DOORSTEP THE NIGHT BEFORE
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:36.010
  • SO WE COULD HAVE DINNER AND BREAKFAST,
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:37.140
  • THAT'S HOW BROKE I WAS.
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:39.110
  • AND THE THOUGHT THAT I WOULD EVEN MAKE MONEY WAS RIDICULOUS.
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:44.140
  • I JUST WANTED TO BE ABLE TO FEED MY FAMILY
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:46.040
  • AND SUPPORT MY MINISTRY,
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.120
  • BECAUSE I HAD A LAY MINISTRY, I WAS 26.
  • 00:03:47.140 --> 00:03:49.260
  • AND I SAID, "OKAY, WHAT DO I DO?"
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:52.120
  • AND HE SAID, "WELL THERE'S 31 CHAPTERS
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:54.000
  • "IN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS, 31 DAYS IN THE MONTH.
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:56.120
  • "EVERY DAY READ THE CHAPTER OF THE DAY
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:03:58.190
  • "WITH PENCIL AND PAPER IN HAND."
  • 00:03:58.210 --> 00:04:01.030
  • THAT WAS THE KEY.
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:02.130
  • AND WHEN GOD SHOWS YOU WISDOM AND INSIGHTS,
  • 00:04:02.150 --> 00:04:04.250
  • WRITE IT DOWN AND BEGIN TO USE THOSE AT YOUR WORK THAT DAY,
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:08.270
  • THE VERY NEXT DAY.
  • 00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:10.020
  • AND HE SAID, "DO THAT FOR TWO YEARS,
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:11.220
  • "IT'LL TAKE YOU THROUGH PROVERBS 24 TIMES
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.150
  • "AND I PROMISE YOU IT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING."
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:17.160
  • WELL SO I STARTED,
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:19.100
  • AND IN THE NEXT 18 MONTHS I WENT THROUGH JOBS
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:21.050
  • SIX, SEVEN, AND EIGHT.
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:23.100
  • - MATT CROUCH: WOW.
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:24.110
  • - YEAH WOW.
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:25.190
  • SO IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT'S WORKING, RIGHT,
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:26.280
  • BUT I'M LEARNING THESE INCREDIBLE STRATEGIES,
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:29.200
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT PROVERBS TEACHES
  • 00:04:29.220 --> 00:04:31.230
  • IS THAT WE ALL NEED MENTORS, WE ALL NEED PARTNERS,
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:35.040
  • AND SO I FOUND THE STRATEGIES IN PROVERBS,
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:38.090
  • BUT I FOUND MENTORS WHO COULD TEACH ME SKILL SETS
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:41.090
  • TO APPLY THOSE TO MY LIFE.
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:43.140
  • SO I STARTED DOING THAT AND ON JOB NUMBER NINE,
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:46.120
  • AS A TINY LITTLE NOTHING IN THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT,
  • 00:04:46.140 --> 00:04:49.140
  • THE LOWEST POSITION IS ASSISTANT PRODUCT MANAGER,
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:52.030
  • AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS,
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:53.180
  • AND I, USING PROVERBS TEACHINGS ON COMMUNICATION
  • 00:04:53.200 --> 00:04:57.270
  • I TALKED THE CEO OF THE COMPANY,
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:05:00.060
  • AND IT WAS A FAIRLY BIG COMPANY,
  • 00:05:00.080 --> 00:05:01.120
  • INTO LETTING ME TAKE ONE LITTLE PRODUCT
  • 00:05:01.140 --> 00:05:04.160
  • AND DO A COMMERCIAL ON IT.
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.180
  • THEY HAD 400 PRODUCTS.
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.200
  • AND HE SAID, "OKAY, YOU CAN DO THAT, SCOTT.
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.150
  • "BETTER NOT LOSE MONEY."
  • 00:05:09.170 --> 00:05:11.150
  • I SAID, "WELL I THINK I HAVE A WAY TO MAKE IT WORK."
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:13.270
  • SO I WENT AHEAD, DID THIS LITTLE PROJECT,
  • 00:05:13.290 --> 00:05:16.020
  • AND IN THREE MONTHS IT DOUBLED THE COMPANY'S SALES
  • 00:05:16.040 --> 00:05:19.170
  • FROM 30 MILLION TO 60 MILLION.
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:22.100
  • AND SO, YEAH, WISDOM FROM PROVERBS, SEE.
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:25.200
  • THIS ISN'T STEVE SCOTT, THIS IS PROVERBS.
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:28.040
  • GOD'S WISDOM THROUGH SOLOMON.
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:30.010
  • SO WHAT HAPPENED, THE GUY THAT WAS BUYING
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:32.160
  • THE TV TIME FOR THAT LIVED IN PHILADELPHIA.
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.230
  • I WAS IN PHOENIX.
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.120
  • AND HE SAID, "HEY, IF YOU COULD FIND A PRODUCT
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:39.210
  • "THAT YOU AND I COULD MARKET ON TV,
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:41.180
  • "YOU COULD LEAVE YOUR JOB AT AMBASSADOR
  • 00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:43.270
  • "AND COME BACK TO PHILLY
  • 00:05:43.290 --> 00:05:46.000
  • "AND WE'LL START OUR OWN TV MARKETING COMPANY."
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:48.240
  • AND SO I START,
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:49.240
  • SO ONCE AGAIN, PROVERBS,
  • 00:05:49.260 --> 00:05:51.190
  • I STARTED TALKING TO PEOPLE ALL OVER THE PLACE.
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:54.130
  • BECAUSE OF PROVERBS, I HAD MET PAT BOONE.
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:05:58.070
  • AND I TOLD PAT I WAS LOOKING FOR A PRODUCT FOR TV
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:06:00.280
  • AND IF HE FOUND IT HE COULD BE THE SPOKESPERSON,
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:03.080
  • AND TWO WEEKS LATER HE CALLED ME WITH A PRODUCT.
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:06.170
  • SO I QUIT MY JOB.
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:07.210
  • WHEN I QUIT MY JOB AT 27,
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:10.190
  • THEY OFFERED TO MAKE ME VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING,
  • 00:06:10.210 --> 00:06:13.180
  • DOUBLE MY SALARY, AND GIVE ME A COMPANY MERCEDES
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:15.290
  • IF I WOULD STAY,
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.060
  • BECAUSE I JUST HIT THE GREATEST HOME RUN
  • 00:06:17.080 --> 00:06:18.200
  • OF THEIR COMPANY'S HISTORY.
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:21.090
  • AND I SAID NO, I TOLD MR. SEGEL,
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:23.240
  • I SAID, "NO I HAVE A CHANCE TO START MY OWN BUSINESS."
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:26.140
  • AND I'M ALL EXCITED.
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:27.220
  • AND HE SAID, "WELL WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS?"
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:28.190
  • I SAID, "WELL, MARKETING."
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:30.080
  • AND HE SAID, "SCOTT, DON'T BE STUPID."
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:32.130
  • I SAID, "OH I'M NOT STUPID."
  • 00:06:32.150 --> 00:06:33.280
  • HE SAYS, "WELL HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE TO START THIS?"
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.140
  • I SAID, "OH MR. SEGEL, I'M BROKE, I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY.
  • 00:06:35.160 --> 00:06:38.000
  • "BUT MY PARTNER HAS FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS."
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:43.240
  • YEAH.
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:44.270
  • HE GOES, "ARE YOU NUTS?"
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:47.140
  • I SAID, "NO, HE DOES, AND I REALLY THINK
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.250
  • "WE CAN TURN THIS INTO A BUSINESS."
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:52.050
  • WELL SO I QUIT AND I MOVED BACK TO PHILADELPHIA.
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:55.270
  • FIVE MONTHS LATER WE LAUNCHED OUR FIRST PRODUCT ON TV.
  • 00:06:55.290 --> 00:06:59.180
  • AND WITHIN TWO WEEKS OUR SALES HIT A MILLION DOLLARS A WEEK.
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:04.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:09.010
  • SO GARY, MY DEAR FRIEND GARY SMALLEY,
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:13.270
  • HAD UNDERESTIMATED THE POWER OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:16.210
  • IT DIDN'T TAKE FIVE YEARS TO BECOME A MILLIONAIRE,
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:19.050
  • IT ONLY TOOK TWO AND A HALF.
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:21.040
  • - WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS PROVERBS.
  • 00:07:21.060 --> 00:07:23.220
  • I, AS I'VE BEEN READING THIS BOOK,
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:27.120
  • AND IT IS OUR MONTHLY OFFER,
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:31.070
  • THE 800 NUMBER IS ON THE SCREEN,
  • 00:07:31.090 --> 00:07:34.070
  • IT'S FOR YOU AND WE ARE GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT THIS
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:37.050
  • THIS ENTIRE ONE HOUR WITH STEVEN.
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:40.220
  • BUT YOU KNOW I WAS BACKSTAGE AND I SAID,
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:43.180
  • "I'VE NEVER DONE A BETH MOORE BIBLE STUDY,
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:46.280
  • BUT IT FEELS LIKE THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:50.080
  • AND WHAT I FEEL LIKE IS HAPPENING FOR ME IS
  • 00:07:50.100 --> 00:07:54.120
  • YOU'VE TAKEN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:57.250
  • AND YOU'VE KIND OF CATEGORIZED IT.
  • 00:07:57.270 --> 00:07:59.220
  • THEN YOU PRIORITIZED IT,
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:02.050
  • AND YOU THEN KIND OF INSERTED YOUR OWN STORY.
  • 00:08:02.070 --> 00:08:05.260
  • IF SOMEBODY JUST TUNED IN,
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:07.050
  • YOU KNOW STEVEN STARTED THIS BROADCAST BY SAYING
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:11.030
  • SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF,
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.280
  • YOU KNOW, I LOST X MANY JOBS OVER X MANY YEARS,
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:15.290
  • AND RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE I COULDN'T GET ANYTHING HAPPENING,
  • 00:08:16.010 --> 00:08:19.040
  • AND THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IN THE PRE-GARY SMALLEY
  • 00:08:19.060 --> 00:08:24.000
  • STEVEN SCOTT IS PROVERBS.
  • 00:08:24.020 --> 00:08:26.140
  • - STEVEN: YES.
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:27.200
  • - SO YOU TOOK GREAT ADVICE FROM GARY SMALLEY
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:29.110
  • AND STARTED DOING THIS,
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.070
  • BUT ULTIMATELY YOU HAVE NOW PUT IT IN
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:35.110
  • KIND OF A WORKBOOK FORM WITH YOUR OWN TESTIMONY
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:38.080
  • KIND OF IN THERE, YOU'VE MADE THIS VERY PRACTICAL.
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:41.160
  • - YEAH IN FACT, RUTH GRAHAM, BILLY'S DAUGHTER,
  • 00:08:41.180 --> 00:08:43.260
  • SAID THAT, SHE ENDORSED THE BOOK, AND SHE SAID THAT,
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:48.140
  • SHE TOLD THE PUBLISHER, THEY GAVE A BIG LONG ENDORSEMENT
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:52.090
  • AND THEN THEY CUT IT DOWN, BUT SHE SAID,
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:53.260
  • "DADDY ALWAYS HAD US READING A CHAPTER OF PROVERBS EVERY DAY
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:57.200
  • "THAT WAS OUR ASSIGNMENT AS KIDS"
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:08:59.080
  • AND SHE'S DONE IT HER WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:08:59.100 --> 00:09:01.030
  • BUT SHE SAID "I'VE NEVER SEEN IT ORGANIZED
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:04.010
  • "AND MADE SO PRACTICAL."
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:06.160
  • AND WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED IS THAT PROVERBS
  • 00:09:06.180 --> 00:09:09.170
  • ISN'T A RELIGIOUS BOOK.
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:11.180
  • OF COURSE IT'S THERE TO BUILD OUR FAITH.
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:14.180
  • IT SAYS THE FEAR OF GOD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:17.010
  • AND IT'S A BOOK ABOUT WISDOM,
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:19.010
  • BUT TO THINK IT'S RELIGIOUS IN ITS NATURE,
  • 00:09:19.030 --> 00:09:21.160
  • IT REALLY ISN'T.
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:22.190
  • WHAT IT REALLY DOES, IT REVEALS,
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:24.160
  • AND THIS IS WHAT I FOUND THAT JUST BLEW ME AWAY,
  • 00:09:24.180 --> 00:09:27.160
  • IT REVEALS LAWS OF LIVING, LAWS OF RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:31.220
  • LAWS OF RELATIONSHIP RELATING TO GOD,
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:33.200
  • LAWS OF RELATING TO OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:36.170
  • AND I COMPARE THEM TO THE PHYSICAL LAWS.
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:38.100
  • YOU KNOW FOR THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS,
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:41.070
  • THE LAWS OF GRAVITY AND AERODYNAMICS
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:43.120
  • KEPT MAN ON THE GROUND
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.140
  • BECAUSE WE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:46.270
  • AND THEN ONE DAY, GUESS WHAT, WE FIGURED OUT
  • 00:09:46.290 --> 00:09:50.000
  • THE LAWS OF AERODYNAMICS,
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:51.150
  • AND THE VERY LAWS THAT KEPT US ON THE GROUND
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:53.120
  • BECAME THE SOURCE OF EMPOWERMENT SO WE COULD FLY,
  • 00:09:53.140 --> 00:09:57.070
  • AND IN A SINGLE CENTURY WE WENT FROM FLYING FOR 12 SECONDS
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:10:01.110
  • WHICH WAS THE WRIGHT BROTHERS' FIRST FLIGHT
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:03.180
  • TO THE MOON BY 1969.
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.020
  • SO IT ONLY TOOK 66 YEARS TO GO
  • 00:10:06.040 --> 00:10:07.290
  • FROM A 12 SECOND FLIGHT TO GET TO THE MOON, OKAY.
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:10.290
  • BECAUSE WE LEARNED THE LAWS OF AERODYNAMICS.
  • 00:10:11.010 --> 00:10:13.100
  • WELL WHEN YOU LEARN THE LAWS OF PROVERBS,
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:16.010
  • THE LAWS OF LIVING, IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:19.180
  • COMMUNICATION IS THE NUMBER ONE PROBLEM IN MARRIAGES,
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:24.270
  • IN BUSINESS, AND IN PARENTING.
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:27.150
  • THERE'S NO GREATER, WOULD YOU AGREE?
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:29.060
  • - MATT CROUCH: YES.
  • 00:10:29.080 --> 00:10:30.000
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:30.270
  • SOLOMON SOLVES THAT.
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:32.210
  • SO SOLOMON HAS OVER 30 PROVERBS ON COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:10:32.230 --> 00:10:36.140
  • SO WHAT I DID IS I ORGANIZED IT ALL,
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:38.290
  • AND WHAT HAPPENS, THE CHAPTER ON COMMUNICATION,
  • 00:10:39.010 --> 00:10:41.050
  • YOU NOT ONLY SEE WHAT HE TAUGHT,
  • 00:10:41.070 --> 00:10:42.170
  • BUT THEN WE THEN GIVE THE SKILL SETS,
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:45.210
  • BECAUSE A STRATEGY WITHOUT A SKILL TO APPLY IT
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:48.120
  • IS MEANINGLESS.
  • 00:10:48.140 --> 00:10:50.000
  • FOR EXAMPLE, SOLOMON SAID,
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:53.140
  • "A WISE MAN TRAINS HIS MOUTH
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:56.120
  • "AND ADDS PERSUASIVENESS TO HIS LIPS."
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:59.160
  • SO THE STRATEGY IS BECOME AN EFFECTIVE
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:01.210
  • AND PERSUASIVE COMMUNICATOR.
  • 00:11:01.230 --> 00:11:04.090
  • - NOT A MANIPULATOR.
  • 00:11:04.110 --> 00:11:05.170
  • - NO, IN FACT, I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP,
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:07.110
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:11:07.130 --> 00:11:08.190
  • MANIPULATING SOMEBODY IS PERSUADING THEM TO DO
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:12.170
  • WHAT I WANT THEM TO DO FOR MY BEST INTEREST
  • 00:11:12.190 --> 00:11:16.130
  • WHETHER OR NOT IT'S IN THEIR BEST INTEREST.
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:18.170
  • PERSUASION IS REALLY TURNING ON THE LIGHT,
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:21.190
  • HELPING SOMEBODY SEE LIFE AS IT REALLY IS
  • 00:11:21.210 --> 00:11:24.020
  • IN THAT SITUATION, AND THEN PERSUADING THEM TO DO
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:28.060
  • WHAT IS TRULY IN THEIR BEST INTEREST.
  • 00:11:28.080 --> 00:11:31.030
  • SO IF YOU SAY NO, IT DOESN'T IMPACT ME
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:34.110
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT TURNING ME DOWN,
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:36.100
  • WHAT'S HAPPENING IS YOU'RE MAKING A CHOICE
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:38.080
  • THAT MAY NOT BE THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU,
  • 00:11:38.100 --> 00:11:39.210
  • SO I'LL GO BACK AND PRAY FOR YOU
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:41.110
  • THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES
  • 00:11:41.130 --> 00:11:43.010
  • AND REALLY LET YOU SEE LIGHT IN THAT SITUATION.
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:47.230
  • BUT WHAT'S NEAT IS IN THE BOOK
  • 00:11:47.250 --> 00:11:50.090
  • WHAT WE DO IS FOR EVERY STRATEGY THAT WE SHOW
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:53.010
  • WE GIVE THE SKILL SETS, SO THIS IS REALLY,
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:58.000
  • - LAURIE: IMPLEMENTING
  • 00:11:58.020 --> 00:11:58.250
  • - IT'S IMPLEMENTATION,
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:00.110
  • AND IT'S CONDENSING WHAT TOOK ME A LIFETIME OF FAILURE
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:05.250
  • TO FIGURE OUT, AND I FIGURED IT OUT FROM PROVERBS.
  • 00:12:05.270 --> 00:12:08.060
  • GARY WAS MY MENTOR IN COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:10.100
  • SO HE'S THE ONE THAT TAUGHT ME THE FIVE SKILL SETS
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:12.090
  • THAT ALLOWED ME TO BECOME AN EFFECTIVE
  • 00:12:12.110 --> 00:12:13.240
  • AND PERSUASIVE COMMUNICATOR.
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.210
  • AND USING THOSE SKILLS SETS THAT HE GAVE ME,
  • 00:12:15.230 --> 00:12:18.000
  • TWO YEARS LATER WE STARTED OUR BUSINESS
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:20.220
  • AND WE'VE GENERATED 40 MILLION PHONE CALLS
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:25.100
  • ORDERING OUR PRODUCTS OVER THE YEARS.
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:28.160
  • IF EVER YOU'VE SEEN TOTAL GYM ON TV
  • 00:12:28.180 --> 00:12:30.120
  • WITH CHUCK NORRIS AND CHRISTIE BRINKLEY,
  • 00:12:30.140 --> 00:12:31.270
  • THAT'S ONE OF OURS.
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:33.130
  • AND THAT ONE'S DONE LIKE TWO AND A HALF BILLION IN SALES.
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:36.080
  • BUT ALL OF THAT TO SAY, IT CAME FROM PROVERBS.
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:39.140
  • SO WE DID THE SAME THING IN SO MANY DIFFERENT AREAS.
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:43.150
  • WE SHOW YOU HOW TO TURN YOUR WORST ENEMY,
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:45.130
  • WHICH IS CRITICISM, INTO YOUR BEST FRIEND.
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:48.220
  • WOMEN GOVERN THEIR LIVES BY TRYING TO AVOID CRITICISM.
  • 00:12:48.240 --> 00:12:53.210
  • - LAURIE: YES WE DO.
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:55.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:57.010
  • YES, THAT'S A GOOD ONE.
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:12:58.110
  • - IF YOU HAVE A RELATIVE THAT IS CRITICAL,
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:01.100
  • YOU TEND NOT TO GO OVER TO THEIR HOUSE
  • 00:13:01.120 --> 00:13:02.220
  • FOR CELEBRATIONS.
  • 00:13:02.240 --> 00:13:04.290
  • - GUILTY, YEAH.
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:06.210
  • - GUILTY AS CHARGED.
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:07.250
  • - THEY AVOID THEIR MOM, THEIR DADS,
  • 00:13:07.270 --> 00:13:09.210
  • THEIR BROTHER OR SISTER,
  • 00:13:09.230 --> 00:13:10.150
  • WHOEVER CRITICIZED THEM.
  • 00:13:10.170 --> 00:13:11.280
  • WELL THAT'S BECAUSE THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:15.010
  • HOW TO MINE THE CRITICISM FOR GOLD.
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:18.000
  • AND SO SOLOMON SAYS THAT OPEN REBUKE
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:22.140
  • IS BETTER THAN SECRET LOVE.
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:25.000
  • NOW THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU TWO STARTED DATING.
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:28.100
  • HONESTLY, COULD YOU THINK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE?
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:30.170
  • - NOPE.
  • 00:13:30.190 --> 00:13:31.130
  • - NO, OKAY, THAT'S THE POWER
  • 00:13:31.150 --> 00:13:34.000
  • OF WHAT HE CALLS SECRET LOVE.
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:35.170
  • I MEAN, OH MAN.
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:36.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:42.190
  • - THAT WAS A DEEP LAUGH.
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:44.170
  • - SO SOLOMON SAYS OPEN REBUKE, CRITICISM IS BETTER THAN THAT
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:50.000
  • HOW CAN THAT BE?
  • 00:13:50.020 --> 00:13:51.180
  • WELL WE SHOW YOU FROM PROVERBS
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:53.170
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT CRITICISM,
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:55.030
  • THERE'S A REAL SIMPLE THING,
  • 00:13:55.050 --> 00:13:57.080
  • THREE THINGS YOU DO THAT WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:13:57.100 --> 00:14:00.120
  • IT TURNS CRITICISM INTO YOUR ALLY.
  • 00:14:00.140 --> 00:14:03.200
  • CRITICISM BECOMES A WAY TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:03.220 --> 00:14:05.280
  • GET BETTER THAN YOU ARE AT ANYTHING.
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:08.090
  • IT BECOMES YOUR FRIEND.
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:10.090
  • AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LEARN THESE THREE THINGS,
  • 00:14:10.110 --> 00:14:12.110
  • NOBODY CAN EVER HURT YOU AGAIN WITH CRITICISM.
  • 00:14:12.130 --> 00:14:15.180
  • AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, YOU GO OVER TO THAT RELATIVES HOUSE.
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:18.120
  • IT'S OKAY, CRITICIZE ME, IT DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:14:18.140 --> 00:14:20.140
  • IN FACT, WHAT YOU'LL SAY-- - DO YOUR MAGIC.
  • 00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:23.130
  • - YEAH, YOU'LL SAY, OH LET ME GET MY JOURNAL OUT.
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:25.150
  • SAY THAT AGAIN SO I CAN WRITE IT DOWN.
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:28.160
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:30.150
  • - YOU ARE A DELIGHTFUL PERSON.
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:35.030
  • OKAY I WANT TO DO TWO THINGS REAL QUICK.
  • 00:14:35.050 --> 00:14:37.170
  • FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANNA KINDA,
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:38.250
  • JUST A TOUCH OF RESET.
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:41.010
  • WE ARE SITTING HERE TALKING ABOUT THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:44.250
  • AND WE'RE DOING IT WITH THIS BOOK
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:47.120
  • THE RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED
  • 00:14:47.140 --> 00:14:49.120
  • KING SOLOMON, OBVIOUSLY HE IS THE AUTHOR
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:52.150
  • OF THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.

  • BUT HE'S CLOSE.
  • 00:16:32.070 --> 00:16:34.220
  • BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SOLOMON,
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:36.140
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:38.100
  • ALRIGHT WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:16:38.120 --> 00:16:40.080
  • THE BOOK OF PROVERBS?
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:42.120
  • - WELL MY COUSINS AND I, WE ALL HAD PASTORS FOR DADS,
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:47.030
  • AND WE ALL HAD TO DO THE DOS AND DON'TS OF PROVERBS
  • 00:16:47.050 --> 00:16:49.280
  • BEFORE WE COULD EVER DATE,
  • 00:16:50.000 --> 00:16:51.170
  • AND SO THAT WAS ALWAYS A GOOD ONE.
  • 00:16:51.190 --> 00:16:53.000
  • AND IF WE WERE EVER IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:16:53.020 --> 00:16:55.050
  • YOU GO READ SOME PROVERBS, THAT WOULD BE REALLY GOOD FOR YOU
  • 00:16:55.070 --> 00:16:58.040
  • YOU KNOW, SO I BECAME, I FELL IN LOVE WITH PROVERBS,
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:17:01.290
  • SO I WOULD SIT AND I WOULD WRITE OUT EVERY SINGLE VERSE
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:05.190
  • OF THE DOS AND THE DON'TS, WHICH IT WORKS ACTUALLY,
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:11.140
  • YOU KNOW, THE WISE MAN DOES THIS,
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:13.110
  • THE DILIGENT MAN DOES THIS,
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:14.250
  • AND SO I HAD DILIGENT, WISE, OBEDIENT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:14.270 --> 00:17:18.290
  • THE STRANGE WOMAN, EVERYTHING IN CATEGORIES,
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:23.160
  • AND SO IT BUILT THINGS INSIDE OF ME
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:26.150
  • TO WHERE TODAY I THINK I HAVE A PRETTY GOOD KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:17:26.170 --> 00:17:29.290
  • OF GOOD AND BAD, I KNOW GOOD FROM EVIL,
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:34.010
  • AND I'M GLAD THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN VISIT ME
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:36.130
  • WHEN I'VE DONE SOMETHING BAD.
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:37.200
  • I KNOW WHEN I DO SOMETHING BAD.
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:39.180
  • THAT IS NOT LOST ON ME.
  • 00:17:39.200 --> 00:17:41.130
  • - STEVEN SCOTT, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, THIS MINUTE,
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:44.250
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT YOUR BOOK
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:46.240
  • THE RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED:
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:48.080
  • KING SOLOMON'S SECRET TO SUCCESS, WEALTH, AND HAPPINESS.
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:51.210
  • LOOK, WE'VE SEEN YOU ON DIFFERENT PROGRAMS
  • 00:17:51.230 --> 00:17:56.020
  • ON CHRISTIAN TELEVISION BEFORE,
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:58.000
  • AND YOU KNOW, WE'VE SEEN YOU ON LIFE TODAY
  • 00:17:58.020 --> 00:17:59.280
  • THAT AIRS RIGHT HERE ON TBN,
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:01.070
  • AND WE SAW YOUR INTERVIEW WITH MARILYN HICKEY
  • 00:18:01.090 --> 00:18:04.240
  • WHO'S BEEN A PART OF TBN SINCE THE BEGINNING,
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:09.090
  • AND SO WE ARE MEETING YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME,
  • 00:18:09.110 --> 00:18:14.000
  • BUT WE HAVE KNOWN OF YOUR WORK
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:16.190
  • AND THEN OF COURSE ANYBODY THAT WATCHES TV
  • 00:18:16.210 --> 00:18:19.260
  • HAS SEEN THE TOTAL GYM INFOMERCIAL AND ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:18:19.280 --> 00:18:24.070
  • AND SO WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE IS THE WAY,
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:27.090
  • AND WHAT YOU'VE DONE IS YOU'VE ORGANIZED PROVERBS
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:30.140
  • AND YOU'VE TAKEN YOUR OWN STORY OF FAILURE
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:34.150
  • AND THEN SUCCESS AND YOU'VE WOVEN IT IN
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:38.140
  • WITH THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:39.200
  • IS THAT FAIR?
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:40.230
  • - THAT'S FAIR, BUT NOT JUST MINE.
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:41.220
  • WALT DISNEY'S STORY FOR EXAMPLE.
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:45.250
  • ONE OF THE CHAPTERS IS ABOUT VISION.
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:51.110
  • GAINING A VISION.
  • 00:18:51.130 --> 00:18:52.160
  • NOW A VISION ISN'T SOMETHING MYSTICAL.
  • 00:18:52.180 --> 00:18:54.220
  • SOLOMON SAID WITHOUT A VISION THE PEOPLE PERISH.
  • 00:18:54.240 --> 00:18:57.200
  • YOU TOLD ME ABOUT THE VISION YOUR DAD HAD,
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:18:59.200
  • OKAY NOW THAT WAS A GOD-GIVEN VISION.
  • 00:18:59.220 --> 00:19:03.150
  • - FOR SATELLITE, YEAH.
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:04.110
  • - RIGHT, OKAY.
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:05.200
  • BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.110
  • THE WAY SOLOMON MEANS IT,
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:09.170
  • HE'S TALKING REALLY ABOUT A ROADMAP, OKAY.
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:13.050
  • SO WE TEACH A PROCESS IN HERE CALLED VISION MAPPING.
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:16.290
  • DISNEY DID IT, EDISON DID IT,
  • 00:19:17.010 --> 00:19:19.150
  • MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACHIEVED
  • 00:19:19.170 --> 00:19:21.100
  • THEIR IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS DID THIS VERY SIMPLE PROCESS,
  • 00:19:21.120 --> 00:19:24.200
  • BUT IT'S NEVER BEEN WRITTEN OUT.
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:26.150
  • AND WE CALL IT VISION MAPPING.
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:28.070
  • SO THE PROVERB ITSELF, WITHOUT A VISION THE PEOPLE PERISH,
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:33.160
  • THE CONVERSE OF EVERY PROVERB IS JUST AS TRUE.
  • 00:19:33.180 --> 00:19:36.080
  • SO WHEN NEW VISION COMES, GUESS WHAT, NEW LIFE COMES.
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:40.210
  • SO WE SHOW YOU HOW TO GAIN A CLEAR AND PRECISE VISION
  • 00:19:40.230 --> 00:19:45.080
  • FOR WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT YOU WANT IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:19:45.100 --> 00:19:47.150
  • WHAT YOU WANT IN THIS RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:19:47.170 --> 00:19:49.030
  • WHAT YOU WANT WITH INDIVIDUAL KIDS,
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:51.090
  • WHAT YOU WANT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.100
  • SPECIFICALLY WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE A YEAR FROM NOW?
  • 00:19:53.120 --> 00:19:56.150
  • WE SHOW YOU HOW TO DEFINE THAT
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:58.030
  • AND THEN WE HELP YOU BUILD A ROADMAP
  • 00:19:58.050 --> 00:20:00.220
  • JUST LIKE A GPS MAP.
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:02.070
  • YOU'RE HERE, YOUR DESTINATION'S HERE,
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:05.230
  • WHAT'S THE BEST ROUTE TO GET THERE?
  • 00:20:05.250 --> 00:20:07.200
  • WHAT ARE THE INTERMEDIATE STOPS?
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:10.000
  • AND THEN THE TIME TABLE.
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:11.130
  • NOW THAT'S PRACTICAL.
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:12.200
  • SEE PEOPLE THINK PROVERBS, I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:20:12.220 --> 00:20:14.280
  • IT'S NOT JUST RELIGIOUS.
  • 00:20:15.000 --> 00:20:17.090
  • IT IS SO PRAGMATIC WHEN YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT,
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:21.160
  • AND THAT'S WHAT MY GOAL HERE,
  • 00:20:21.180 --> 00:20:23.200
  • IN FACT IT WAS ORIGINALLY DOUBLE PUBLISHED
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:26.230
  • AS A BUSINESS BOOK BY RANDOM HOUSE,
  • 00:20:26.250 --> 00:20:29.120
  • AND THAT'S WHY LARRY KING HAD ME ON,
  • 00:20:29.140 --> 00:20:31.050
  • LARRY KING HAD ME ON HIS SHOW.
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:32.160
  • AND IT BLEW ME AWAY.
  • 00:20:32.180 --> 00:20:35.170
  • HERE WAS THIS WONDERFUL JEWISH MAN,
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:38.060
  • YOU KNOW, HE STRUGGLES WITH THE CONCEPT OF GOD,
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:42.040
  • AND HE'S TALKING TO ME ABOUT PROVERBS.
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:44.190
  • AND THAT'S ONE THING NEAT, FOR ALL OF YOU,
  • 00:20:44.210 --> 00:20:46.290
  • WHEN YOU GET YOUR BOOK, THIS IS A DOOR OPENER.
  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:51.040
  • THIS ISN'T ABOUT RELIGION.
  • 00:20:51.060 --> 00:20:52.250
  • THIS IS AS PRACTICAL TO IF YOU HAVE AN ATHEIST NEIGHBOR,
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:57.060
  • THE LAWS THAT SOLOMON REVEALS IN PROVERBS
  • 00:20:57.080 --> 00:21:00.180
  • ARE JUST AS GOOD FOR THEM AS IT IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:00.200 --> 00:21:03.040
  • THE DIFFERENCE IS YOU HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO EMPOWER YOU
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:07.020
  • SO YOU HAVE A BIG ADVANTAGE, OKAY.
  • 00:21:07.040 --> 00:21:09.230
  • BUT ANYBODY, WATCH THIS, WATCH.
  • 00:21:09.250 --> 00:21:12.120
  • NOW YOU DROP IT.
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:16.060
  • SEE, DOESN'T MATTER WHO DROPS IT.
  • 00:21:16.080 --> 00:21:18.000
  • THE LAWS OF GRAVITY DETERMINE HOW FAST IT FALLS
  • 00:21:18.020 --> 00:21:21.050
  • AND THE LAWS OF MATTER, THE LAWS OF INERTIA, OKAY.
  • 00:21:21.070 --> 00:21:24.000
  • PHYSICAL LAWS.
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:25.090
  • WELL THE LAWS THAT ARE REVEALED IN PROVERBS
  • 00:21:25.110 --> 00:21:27.080
  • AND WE'VE JUST MADE THEM ORGANIZED, EASY TO FOLLOW,
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:30.130
  • AND THEN WE'VE GIVEN SPECIFIC STEPS
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:32.040
  • TO BRING THEM INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:33.070
  • - AND THEY HAVEN'T EXPIRED.
  • 00:21:33.090 --> 00:21:34.160
  • - NO!
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:35.280
  • NOW THIS BOOK, AND I'M SO GLAD WE'RE PARTNERING ON TBN,
  • 00:21:36.000 --> 00:21:39.250
  • BECAUSE THIS IS A MESSAGE THAT NEEDS TO GET
  • 00:21:39.270 --> 00:21:41.120
  • TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:42.150
  • PEOPLE, WHEN THEY GET THIS, THEY SAY,
  • 00:21:42.170 --> 00:21:43.270
  • I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT GETTING RICH AND IT'S NOT.
  • 00:21:43.290 --> 00:21:45.230
  • NO IT'S NOT.
  • 00:21:45.250 --> 00:21:46.290
  • THIS BOOK'S NOT ABOUT GETTING RICH.
  • 00:21:47.010 --> 00:21:49.120
  • IT'S ABOUT BEING SUCCESSFUL,
  • 00:21:49.140 --> 00:21:51.060
  • AND THERE'S RADICALLY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:52.160
  • THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MEN,
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:53.270
  • YOU BROUGHT UP GARY WEST.
  • 00:21:53.290 --> 00:21:55.210
  • I LOVE GARY WEST.
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:57.060
  • I HELPED HIS WIFE START THEIR ANSWERING SERVICE.
  • 00:21:57.080 --> 00:21:59.150
  • I GAVE HER HER FIRST MILLION PHONE CALLS.
  • 00:21:59.170 --> 00:22:02.040
  • GARY SOLD HALF OF HIS STOCK
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:03.270
  • FOR A BILLION AND A HALF DOLLARS YEARS LATER.
  • 00:22:03.290 --> 00:22:07.110
  • AND I WILL TELL YOU HE'S NOT THE RICHEST PERSON
  • 00:22:07.130 --> 00:22:10.100
  • I'VE EVER KNOWN.
  • 00:22:10.120 --> 00:22:11.190
  • THE RICHEST MAN I'VE EVER KNOWN IS BROTHER HICKS
  • 00:22:11.210 --> 00:22:14.050
  • WHO SPENT HIS WHOLE LIFE WORKING ON A JANITORIAL CREW
  • 00:22:14.070 --> 00:22:16.230
  • AT VALLEY NATIONAL BANK,
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:18.230
  • GIVING THE BANK AN EXTRA SIX HOURS EVERY NIGHT
  • 00:22:18.250 --> 00:22:21.040
  • BECAUSE THE LAST BUS TO DOWNTOWN
  • 00:22:21.060 --> 00:22:23.110
  • LEFT SIX HOURS BEFORE HIS SHIFT STARTED
  • 00:22:23.130 --> 00:22:27.060
  • AND HE WOULD WORK FROM SIX O'CLOCK
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:30.250
  • UNTIL EIGHT O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING EVERY NIGHT
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:34.140
  • CLEANING TOILETS IN A 13 STORY OFFICE BUILDING.
  • 00:22:34.160 --> 00:22:38.150
  • AND YOU KNOW WHERE HE WAS, YOU KNEW HE WAS ON YOUR FLOOR,
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:41.240
  • BECAUSE YOU'D HEAR HIM SINGING HOW GREAT THOU ART,
  • 00:22:41.260 --> 00:22:43.260
  • AMAZING GRACE.
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:45.040
  • AND HE'D SAY, "BROTHER STEVE,
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:46.170
  • "CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW BLESSED I AM?
  • 00:22:46.190 --> 00:22:49.050
  • "I GOT THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!"
  • 00:22:49.070 --> 00:22:51.030
  • HE SAID, "I GET TO SING IN AN ECHO CHAMBER!"
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:53.080
  • AND HE SAID, "NOBODY BOTHERS ME."
  • 00:22:53.100 --> 00:22:56.270
  • HE SAYS, "I'VE GOT SIX EXTRA HOURS EVERY NIGHT,
  • 00:22:56.290 --> 00:22:59.100
  • "SO IF EVER YOU NEED HELP ON ANYTHING YOU'RE DOING,
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:01.070
  • "JUST LET ME KNOW AND I'LL HELP YOU."
  • 00:23:01.090 --> 00:23:02.270
  • AND HE WAS 65 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME.
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:05.190
  • AND THE ONE DAY, BOB, WHO RAN OUR CREW,
  • 00:23:05.210 --> 00:23:09.020
  • HE WAS A PART TIME BAPTIST MINISTER,
  • 00:23:09.040 --> 00:23:12.210
  • BUT HE DIDN'T MAKE ANY MONIES AS A MINISTER,
  • 00:23:12.230 --> 00:23:15.260
  • HE DREW NO SALARY, SO HE PAID FOR HIS LIVING
  • 00:23:15.280 --> 00:23:19.060
  • ON THE JANITORIAL CREW.
  • 00:23:19.080 --> 00:23:21.120
  • AND HE SAYS, "YOU KNOW WHAT BROTHER HICKS GOES TO HOME
  • 00:23:21.140 --> 00:23:24.210
  • "EVERY MORNING WHEN HE LEAVES?"
  • 00:23:24.230 --> 00:23:27.120
  • I SAID NO.
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:28.200
  • HE GOES HOME AND HE GETS TWO HOURS OF SLEEP
  • 00:23:28.220 --> 00:23:31.050
  • AND THEN HE WAKES UP AND HE TAKES CARE OF HIS INVALID WIFE
  • 00:23:31.070 --> 00:23:34.010
  • UNTIL IT'S TIME TO CATCH THE SIX O'CLOCK BUS.
  • 00:23:34.030 --> 00:23:37.100
  • SO ONE TIME I ASKED BROTHER HICKS,
  • 00:23:37.120 --> 00:23:39.140
  • I SAID, "YOU KNOW, BOB TOLD ME WHAT YOU GO HOME TO."
  • 00:23:39.160 --> 00:23:44.260
  • AND I SAID, "I'M A COLLEGE STUDENT,
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:47.190
  • BUT I SAID, "WEEKENDS ARE GOOD FOR ME,
  • 00:23:47.210 --> 00:23:49.250
  • "AND I THOUGHT MAYBE SATURDAY I COULD COME OVER
  • 00:23:49.270 --> 00:23:52.000
  • "AND MAYBE TAKE CARE OF YOUR WIFE
  • 00:23:52.020 --> 00:23:53.230
  • "AND YOU COULD DO SOME OTHER THINGS."
  • 00:23:53.250 --> 00:23:56.190
  • AND HE SAID, "OH STEVE, THAT'S SO NICE OF YOU,
  • 00:23:56.210 --> 00:24:01.220
  • "BUT I AM SO SELFISH, SO I HOPE YOU'LL FORGIVE ME."
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:05.240
  • HE SAID, "YOU SEE MY WHOLE LIFE,
  • 00:24:05.260 --> 00:24:08.000
  • "MY WIFE TOOK CARE OF ME AND THE KIDS,
  • 00:24:08.020 --> 00:24:10.040
  • "AND NOW I GET A CHANCE TO LOVE HER AND TAKE CARE OF HER."
  • 00:24:10.060 --> 00:24:14.230
  • AND HE SAYS, "I'M SO SELFISH,
  • 00:24:14.250 --> 00:24:16.070
  • "I DON'T EVEN SHARE THAT TIME WITH MY OWN KIDS."
  • 00:24:16.090 --> 00:24:19.200
  • HE'S THE RICHEST MAN I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:24:19.220 --> 00:24:23.200
  • NOT BY MY DEFINITION OF RICHES,
  • 00:24:23.220 --> 00:24:26.130
  • BUT BY GOD'S DEFINITION IN PROVERBS.
  • 00:24:26.150 --> 00:24:28.170

  • AND HE IS THE AUTHOR OF THE RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED.
  • 00:26:49.030 --> 00:26:52.100
  • STEVEN, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:26:52.120 --> 00:26:54.220
  • WHEN I STARTED READING THIS,
  • 00:26:54.240 --> 00:26:57.080
  • I SAW THE PRACTICALITY OF THE WAY
  • 00:26:57.100 --> 00:27:01.090
  • YOU'VE KIND OF ORGANIZED THIS,
  • 00:27:01.110 --> 00:27:04.250
  • THIS MEANING THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:27:04.270 --> 00:27:08.140
  • NOW YOU TALKED EARLIER ABOUT YOUR FATHER'S DESIRE FOR YOU
  • 00:27:08.160 --> 00:27:14.220
  • TO DO THE DOS AND THE DON'TS.
  • 00:27:14.240 --> 00:27:16.190
  • THAT'S KIND OF A DIFFERENT WAY TO CATEGORIZE THINGS
  • 00:27:16.210 --> 00:27:18.220
  • OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:27:18.240 --> 00:27:19.280
  • WHAT YOU'VE DONE IS YOU'VE APPLIED IT TO
  • 00:27:20.000 --> 00:27:22.080
  • YOUR BUSINESS LIFE,
  • 00:27:22.100 --> 00:27:24.120
  • YOUR ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE WELL,
  • 00:27:24.140 --> 00:27:26.220
  • YOUR ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:27:26.240 --> 00:27:29.210
  • IN THIS BOOK YOU BREAK DOWN ONE OF THE KEYS,
  • 00:27:29.230 --> 00:27:34.080
  • IF THERE IS ONE KEY, I THINK IT'S THE TERM DILIGENCE.
  • 00:27:34.100 --> 00:27:37.050
  • - STEVEN: YES.
  • 00:27:37.070 --> 00:27:39.000
  • - SO THERE MIGHT BE A KEY THAT YOU COULD HAND SOMEBODY
  • 00:27:39.020 --> 00:27:44.100
  • AND THEY COULD PUT IT IN THE LOCK AND TURN IT,
  • 00:27:44.120 --> 00:27:47.030
  • AND IT IS A TERM, DILIGENCE.
  • 00:27:47.050 --> 00:27:50.030
  • YOU SPEND AN ENTIRE CHAPTER SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:27:50.050 --> 00:27:53.020
  • BREAKING DOWN THAT WORD,
  • 00:27:53.040 --> 00:27:55.090
  • BREAKING DOWN WHAT THAT MEANS AND THE PRACTICALITY OF IT.
  • 00:27:55.110 --> 00:27:58.140
  • THAT ONE CHAPTER ALONE IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT
  • 00:27:58.160 --> 00:28:04.050
  • I THINK THIS BOOK IS AMAZING,
  • 00:28:04.070 --> 00:28:06.170
  • AND LOOK, I WANT YOU TO GET IT, IT'LL HELP YOU.
  • 00:28:06.190 --> 00:28:09.130
  • WHY DON'T YOU GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF THAT KIND OF BREAKDOWN
  • 00:28:09.150 --> 00:28:15.270
  • OF MAYBE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT DILIGENCE REALLY MEANS.
  • 00:28:15.290 --> 00:28:19.040
  • - STEVEN: MOST PEOPLE DON'T. - OKAY.
  • 00:28:19.060 --> 00:28:20.230
  • - IN FACT, I ALWAYS THOUGHT DILIGENCE WAS JUST HARD WORK.
  • 00:28:20.250 --> 00:28:24.110
  • SOLOMON SAYS DO YOU SEE A MAN DILIGENT IN HIS BUSINESS.
  • 00:28:24.130 --> 00:28:27.200
  • HE WILL STAND, NOT BOW, STAND BEFORE KINGS.
  • 00:28:27.220 --> 00:28:32.060
  • THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT STAND IN A KING'S PRESENCE
  • 00:28:32.080 --> 00:28:34.080
  • ARE HIS ADVISORS, OKAY.
  • 00:28:34.100 --> 00:28:36.090
  • AND HE SAYS, BUT THAT'S HOW RARE DILIGENCE IS.
  • 00:28:36.110 --> 00:28:40.010
  • MOST PEOPLE AREN'T DILIGENT.
  • 00:28:40.030 --> 00:28:41.150
  • MOST PEOPLE, MY DAD WAS A VERY HARD WORKER,
  • 00:28:41.170 --> 00:28:44.050
  • WORKED HARD HIS WHOLE LIFE, BUT HE WASN'T DILIGENT.
  • 00:28:44.070 --> 00:28:47.190
  • BEFORE I GOT INTO PROVERBS, I WORKED HARD.
  • 00:28:47.210 --> 00:28:50.190
  • I WAS FIRST IN, LAST OUT.
  • 00:28:50.210 --> 00:28:53.070
  • I UNDERSTOOD MY CRAFT BUT I COULDN'T SUCCEED,
  • 00:28:53.090 --> 00:28:56.020
  • BUT I WASN'T DILIGENT.
  • 00:28:56.040 --> 00:28:57.190
  • DILIGENT, IF YOU TOOK EVERY STATEMENT ON DILIGENCE
  • 00:28:57.210 --> 00:29:01.170
  • THAT SOLOMON GIVES, YOU WOULD FIND IT HAS
  • 00:29:01.190 --> 00:29:04.000
  • EIGHT COMPONENT PARTS,
  • 00:29:04.020 --> 00:29:06.050
  • AND IF THOSE COMPONENT PARTS AREN'T THERE,
  • 00:29:06.070 --> 00:29:08.050
  • YOU'RE NOT DILIGENT.
  • 00:29:08.070 --> 00:29:09.130
  • NOW THE GOOD NEWS IS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE DILIGENT
  • 00:29:09.150 --> 00:29:10.280
  • ABOUT EVERYTHING.
  • 00:29:11.000 --> 00:29:12.130
  • I DECIDED TO TAKE UP SKIING BECAUSE MY WIFE LOVED TO SKI
  • 00:29:12.150 --> 00:29:15.060
  • AND I WANTED TO BE WITH HER ON THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:29:15.080 --> 00:29:17.030
  • AND SO I DON'T HAVE TO BE DILIGENT
  • 00:29:17.050 --> 00:29:19.070
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO WIN ANY RACES.
  • 00:29:19.090 --> 00:29:20.190
  • I JUST WANTED TO GO DOWN WITHOUT FALLING.
  • 00:29:20.210 --> 00:29:23.240
  • BUT IF I DON'T SUCCEED IN MY BUSINESS,
  • 00:29:23.260 --> 00:29:26.220
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T GET PAID.
  • 00:29:26.240 --> 00:29:28.280
  • A LOT OF OTHER BUSINESSES THAT SERVE OUR BUSINESS,
  • 00:29:29.000 --> 00:29:31.070
  • THEIR PEOPLE DON'T GET PAID.
  • 00:29:31.090 --> 00:29:32.270
  • SO A LOT RESTS ON ME BEING SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:29:32.290 --> 00:29:35.200
  • BUT TO BE SUCCESSFUL I HAD TO BECOME DILIGENT
  • 00:29:35.220 --> 00:29:39.160
  • AND I HAD TO LEARN WHAT THAT MEANT.
  • 00:29:39.180 --> 00:29:41.150
  • DILIGENCE, FOR EXAMPLE, ONE OF THE COMPONENT PARTS
  • 00:29:41.170 --> 00:29:44.210
  • IS EFFECTIVE PARTNERING.
  • 00:29:44.230 --> 00:29:47.140
  • NOBODY HAS EVERY ACHIEVED ANYTHING EXTRAORDINARY,
  • 00:29:47.160 --> 00:29:50.170
  • NOBODY IN HISTORY, BY THEMSELVES.
  • 00:29:50.190 --> 00:29:54.040
  • AND YET WE'RE TAUGHT IN SCHOOL, HEY IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:29:54.060 --> 00:29:57.070
  • YOU KNOW, YOU BETTER COVER YOUR BUTT
  • 00:29:57.090 --> 00:29:58.140
  • BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE IS GONNA BE WATCHING.
  • 00:29:58.160 --> 00:30:00.030
  • AND IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED, MAN,
  • 00:30:00.050 --> 00:30:02.160
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.
  • 00:30:02.180 --> 00:30:04.060
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:30:04.080 --> 00:30:06.050
  • WHEN YOU LEARN HOW TO EFFECTIVELY PARTNER,
  • 00:30:06.070 --> 00:30:08.240
  • ALL CEILING OF OPPORTUNITY IS REMOVED.
  • 00:30:08.260 --> 00:30:11.260
  • THERE'S NO LONGER A CEILING.
  • 00:30:11.280 --> 00:30:15.020
  • AND I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL WITH STEPHEN SPIELBERG.
  • 00:30:15.040 --> 00:30:17.110
  • AND SPIELBERG WAS IN THE,
  • 00:30:17.130 --> 00:30:18.240
  • WE SAT NEXT TO EACH OTHER AT EVERY FOOTBALL GAME.
  • 00:30:18.260 --> 00:30:20.240
  • HE WAS IN THE BAND, I WAS IN THE COLOR GUARD.
  • 00:30:20.260 --> 00:30:23.080
  • IF YOU HAD PUT US ON THE LIST
  • 00:30:23.100 --> 00:30:24.230
  • FOR PEOPLE MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED,
  • 00:30:24.250 --> 00:30:27.010
  • THE QUESTION EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE SAID WAS, STEVEN WHO?
  • 00:30:27.030 --> 00:30:30.120
  • WHO'S STEVE SCOTT, WHO'S STEVE SPIELBERG?
  • 00:30:30.140 --> 00:30:32.130
  • NOBODY KNEW US.
  • 00:30:32.150 --> 00:30:33.250
  • YOU KNOW, OUR COMBINED WEIGHT WAS LIKE 220 POUNDS.
  • 00:30:33.270 --> 00:30:37.190
  • HALF OF WHICH WAS ACNE AND BRACES.
  • 00:30:37.210 --> 00:30:39.290
  • AND SO WE WEREN'T POPULAR.
  • 00:30:40.010 --> 00:30:42.100
  • BUT WE MET UP WITH EACH OTHER 18 YEAR AFTER WE GRADUATED
  • 00:30:42.120 --> 00:30:46.180
  • AND IT TURNS OUT WE HAD DONE THE EXACT SAME THINGS.
  • 00:30:46.200 --> 00:30:49.180
  • WE HAVE BOTH LEARNED HOW TO EFFECTIVELY
  • 00:30:49.200 --> 00:30:50.280
  • AND PERSUASIVELY COMMUNICATE, PROVERBS.
  • 00:30:51.000 --> 00:30:53.180
  • WE HAD BOTH LEARNED HOW TO EFFECTIVELY PARTNER, PROVERBS.
  • 00:30:53.200 --> 00:30:56.220
  • PROVERBS SAYS WITHOUT COUNSEL OR WITHOUT PARTNERS
  • 00:30:56.240 --> 00:30:59.090
  • YOU WILL FAIL, BUT IN A MULTITUDE OF PARTNERS,
  • 00:30:59.110 --> 00:31:02.140
  • THERE'S SUCCESS.
  • 00:31:02.160 --> 00:31:04.120
  • HE SAID WITHOUT PARTNERS OR COUNSELORS, YOU WILL FALL.
  • 00:31:04.140 --> 00:31:07.000
  • NOBODY EVER PLANS TO FALL, IT ALWAYS TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE.
  • 00:31:07.020 --> 00:31:09.270
  • AND THERE'S ALWAYS INJURY.
  • 00:31:09.290 --> 00:31:12.040
  • BUT WITH A MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS OR PARTNERS
  • 00:31:12.060 --> 00:31:15.030
  • THERE'S SAFETY.
  • 00:31:15.050 --> 00:31:16.250
  • SO THE KEY TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON
  • 00:31:16.270 --> 00:31:20.030
  • WHO'S EVER ACHIEVED THEIR IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS
  • 00:31:20.050 --> 00:31:23.010
  • HAS DONE IT THROUGH EFFECTIVE PARTNERING,
  • 00:31:23.030 --> 00:31:24.250
  • BUT THERE'S NOT A SINGLE SCHOOL IN AMERICA
  • 00:31:24.270 --> 00:31:27.060
  • THAT TEACHES YOU HOW TO EFFECTIVELY PARTNER.
  • 00:31:27.080 --> 00:31:29.160
  • SOLOMON DOES.
  • 00:31:29.180 --> 00:31:30.290
  • - YOU'RE LITERALLY BREAKING DOWN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:31:31.010 --> 00:31:35.050
  • WE'RE ON DILIGENCE, KEEP GOING.
  • 00:31:35.070 --> 00:31:37.090
  • - OKAY IT SAYS,
  • 00:31:37.110 --> 00:31:39.270
  • IN FACT, YOU KNOW WHAT WE'LL DO,
  • 00:31:39.290 --> 00:31:41.080
  • I'LL READ YOU THE RIGHT DEFINITION OF DILIGENCE.
  • 00:31:41.100 --> 00:31:43.200
  • - MATT: I'VE GOT IT RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:31:43.220 --> 00:31:44.150
  • - OKAY GO AHEAD.
  • 00:31:44.170 --> 00:31:45.120
  • - DILIGENCE IS A LEARNABLE SKILL
  • 00:31:45.140 --> 00:31:47.160
  • THAT COMBINES CREATIVE PERSISTENCE,
  • 00:31:47.180 --> 00:31:50.290
  • A SMART WORKING EFFORT RIGHTLY PLANNED AND RIGHTLY PERFORMED
  • 00:31:51.010 --> 00:31:56.020
  • IN A TIMELY, EFFICIENT, AND EFFECTIVE MANNER
  • 00:31:56.040 --> 00:31:58.290
  • TO OBTAIN A RESULT THAT IS PURE
  • 00:31:59.010 --> 00:32:02.150
  • AND OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF EXCELLENCE.
  • 00:32:02.170 --> 00:32:05.260
  • THAT'S DILIGENCE.
  • 00:32:05.280 --> 00:32:08.090
  • - THAT'S EVERYTHING SOLOMON SAID ABOUT DILIGENCE,
  • 00:32:08.110 --> 00:32:10.110
  • EXCEPT I LEFT SOMETHING OUT WHEN I WROTE THE BOOK,
  • 00:32:10.130 --> 00:32:13.080
  • AND THAT IS EFFECTIVE PARTNERING.
  • 00:32:13.100 --> 00:32:15.140
  • NOW WE HAVE A WHOLE CHAPTER ON EFFECTIVE PARTNERING,
  • 00:32:15.160 --> 00:32:18.150
  • I JUST DIDN'T PUT IT IN ON DILIGENCE,
  • 00:32:18.170 --> 00:32:20.010
  • BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:32:20.030 --> 00:32:21.220
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO BE DILIGENT WITHOUT EFFECTIVE PARTNERING.
  • 00:32:21.240 --> 00:32:26.180
  • I LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THIS NETWORK WORK.
  • 00:32:26.200 --> 00:32:29.040
  • CAMERA MEN, PEOPLE THAT ARE, YOU TOOK ME,
  • 00:32:29.060 --> 00:32:32.070
  • YOU GAVE ME THIS TOUR,
  • 00:32:32.090 --> 00:32:33.130
  • ALL THESE DIFFERENT JOBS THAT PEOPLE DO,
  • 00:32:33.150 --> 00:32:35.190
  • WHETHER THEY'RE TREATED THAT WAY OR NOT,
  • 00:32:35.210 --> 00:32:37.140
  • THEY ARE YOUR PARTNERS HERE, OKAY.
  • 00:32:37.160 --> 00:32:39.220
  • YOU EFFECTIVELY PARTNER AND YOU HAVE SUCCESS.
  • 00:32:39.240 --> 00:32:42.010
  • YOU INEFFECTIVELY PARTNER AND YOU HAVE FAILURE.
  • 00:32:42.030 --> 00:32:44.150
  • I WAS ON A PLANE WITH A BUSINESSMAN TODAY,
  • 00:32:44.170 --> 00:32:47.060
  • AND HE BUILT THIS WONDERFUL BUSINESS, SOLD IT,
  • 00:32:47.080 --> 00:32:51.110
  • THE FIRST THING THEY CHANGED WAS WHAT BUILT THE BUSINESS.
  • 00:32:51.130 --> 00:32:54.010
  • THEY SAID WHY ARE YOU GIVING HEALTH INSURANCE
  • 00:32:54.030 --> 00:32:58.030
  • TO ALL THESE PEOPLE, THEY'RE $13 AN HOUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:32:58.050 --> 00:33:01.070
  • WHY ARE YOU GIVING THEM HEALTH INSURANCE?
  • 00:33:01.090 --> 00:33:02.260
  • AND HE SAYS, "WELL, FOR ME,
  • 00:33:02.280 --> 00:33:07.100
  • "ANYBODY ELSE, THEIR TENURE IS USUALLY 90 DAYS,
  • 00:33:07.120 --> 00:33:09.240
  • "BUT FOR ME, IN THAT PARTICULAR JOB, THEY LAST SIX YEARS."
  • 00:33:09.260 --> 00:33:13.250
  • HE SAYS, "I TREAT THEM LIKE PEOPLE INSTEAD OF LIKE SERVANTS"
  • 00:33:13.270 --> 00:33:17.160
  • GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:33:17.180 --> 00:33:19.140
  • PROVERBS TEACHES YOU HOW TO LEAD.
  • 00:33:19.160 --> 00:33:22.110
  • GUESS WHO DID THAT?
  • 00:33:22.130 --> 00:33:23.160
  • JESUS LED THE WAY SOLOMON TAUGHT.
  • 00:33:23.180 --> 00:33:26.000
  • NOW SOLOMON FELL APART BECAUSE GOD GAVE HIM ALL THIS WISDOM
  • 00:33:26.020 --> 00:33:32.040
  • AND THEN HE ENDED UP IGNORING IT LATER IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:33:32.060 --> 00:33:34.160
  • HE GOT TOO ARROGANT.
  • 00:33:34.180 --> 00:33:35.290
  • HE SAID, GOD SAID I WILL DESTROY THE HOUSE OF THE PROUD.
  • 00:33:36.010 --> 00:33:39.130
  • AND SOLOMON BECAME PROUD AND ARROGANT.
  • 00:33:39.150 --> 00:33:41.170
  • HE SAID I'LL BRING ALL YOUR EFFORTS TO WASTE.
  • 00:33:41.190 --> 00:33:45.010
  • BUT GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:33:45.030 --> 00:33:46.130
  • ONE PERSON IN HISTORY LIVED THE PROVERBS PERFECTLY,
  • 00:33:46.150 --> 00:33:51.220
  • AND THAT'S THE LORD JESUS.
  • 00:33:51.240 --> 00:33:53.210
  • SO HE GOT ALL THE BLESSINGS OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:33:53.230 --> 00:33:56.270
  • WELL THOSE BLESSINGS ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL OF US.
  • 00:33:56.290 --> 00:33:59.210
  • SO LET'S GO BACK TO, IN DILIGENCE,
  • 00:33:59.230 --> 00:34:03.160
  • THERE'S A THING HE SAYS THAT THE PLANS OF THE DILIGENT,
  • 00:34:03.180 --> 00:34:07.210
  • SO A DILIGENT PERSON PLANS.
  • 00:34:07.230 --> 00:34:11.010
  • IF YOU DON'T PLAN, IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN EFFECTIVE
  • 00:34:11.030 --> 00:34:13.080
  • GOAL-SETTING PROGRAM, THAT'S WHY VISION MAPPING
  • 00:34:13.100 --> 00:34:15.140
  • IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:34:15.160 --> 00:34:16.290
  • IT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS OF SETTING GOALS.
  • 00:34:17.010 --> 00:34:21.110
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT THE THREE PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN ADULTS
  • 00:34:21.130 --> 00:34:24.160
  • THAT SET GOALS EARN DOUBLE WHAT THE OTHER 97 PERCENT EARN?
  • 00:34:24.180 --> 00:34:29.110
  • - MATT: THAT DON'T?
  • 00:34:29.130 --> 00:34:30.120
  • - THAT DON'T.
  • 00:34:30.140 --> 00:34:31.070
  • - WOW, WOW.
  • 00:34:31.090 --> 00:34:33.010
  • - I GOTTA START DOING THAT.
  • 00:34:33.030 --> 00:34:34.080
  • - YEAH, SEE, I NEED YOU TO START DOING IT.
  • 00:34:34.100 --> 00:34:35.150
  • IT'S IN PROVERBS. EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW.
  • 00:34:35.170 --> 00:34:38.050
  • ALL I DID IS ORGANIZE IT
  • 00:34:38.070 --> 00:34:39.290
  • AND PUT IT INTO A VERY PRACTICAL WAY.
  • 00:34:40.010 --> 00:34:43.160
  • I DO WANT TO SAY ONE THING BEFORE,
  • 00:34:43.180 --> 00:34:45.140
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR TIME IS,
  • 00:34:45.160 --> 00:34:46.280
  • BUT PEOPLE, WHEN THEY GET THIS, THEY SAY,
  • 00:34:47.000 --> 00:34:50.020
  • "I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT GETTING RICH AND IT'S NOT."
  • 00:34:50.040 --> 00:34:51.290
  • NO IT'S NOT.
  • 00:34:52.010 --> 00:34:54.240
  • PROVERBS SAYS HE THAT IS HASTY TO GET RICH
  • 00:34:54.260 --> 00:34:58.240
  • SURELY POVERTY WILL COME UPON THEM, OKAY.
  • 00:34:58.260 --> 00:35:02.260
  • SOLOMON SAYS THAT GREED WILL STEAL THE LIFE,
  • 00:35:02.280 --> 00:35:07.190
  • STEAL THE LIFE OF THE PERSON THAT POSSESSES IT.
  • 00:35:07.210 --> 00:35:10.280
  • HAVE YOU GUYS EVER HAD ANYTHING STOLEN?
  • 00:35:11.000 --> 00:35:13.010
  • - YES.
  • 00:35:13.030 --> 00:35:14.020
  • - MAKES YOU FEEL VIOLATED.
  • 00:35:14.040 --> 00:35:16.000
  • YOU WANNA THINK, WELL HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, RIGHT?
  • 00:35:16.020 --> 00:35:18.210
  • DON'T YOU FEEL?
  • 00:35:18.230 --> 00:35:20.070
  • OKAY, WELL SOLOMON SAYS GREED WILL ACTUALLY STEAL YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:35:20.090 --> 00:35:24.210
  • SO THERE'S A WHOLE CHAPTER ON HOW TO IDENTIFY
  • 00:35:24.230 --> 00:35:26.260
  • THE SEEDS OF GREED,
  • 00:35:26.280 --> 00:35:28.230
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU SEE THE SEEDS YOU CAN PULL THEM OUT.
  • 00:35:28.250 --> 00:35:31.130
  • PEOPLE SAY, "WELL CAN I BE SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT GREED?"
  • 00:35:31.150 --> 00:35:33.110
  • YES!
  • 00:35:33.130 --> 00:35:34.230
  • SOLOMON WAS THE RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED,
  • 00:35:34.250 --> 00:35:36.150
  • BUT HE WAS NEVER GREEDY, OKAY.
  • 00:35:36.170 --> 00:35:39.010
  • SAME THING IN RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:35:39.030 --> 00:35:41.000
  • YOU CAN BE GREEDY IN A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:35:41.020 --> 00:35:42.210
  • WE CALL THAT POSSESSIVENESS.
  • 00:35:42.230 --> 00:35:44.270
  • SOLOMON SAYS CUT IT OUT.
  • 00:35:44.290 --> 00:35:46.070
  • GOD SAYS CUT IT OUT.
  • 00:35:46.090 --> 00:35:48.030
  • SO THERE'S JUST SO MUCH IN HERE,
  • 00:35:48.050 --> 00:35:49.160
  • OVER 200 PROVERBS.
  • 00:35:49.180 --> 00:35:50.250
  • THERE'S 913 VERSES IN PROVERBS,
  • 00:35:50.270 --> 00:35:52.270
  • OVER 200 OF THEM ARE IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:35:52.290 --> 00:35:54.230
  • - OKAY, WE ARE,
  • 00:35:54.250 --> 00:35:56.290
  • I THINK WE ARE JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE OF THIS BOOK.
  • 00:35:57.010 --> 00:36:02.280
  • THE WAY THAT YOU BREAK DOWN THE DEFINITION
  • 00:36:03.000 --> 00:36:06.260
  • OR THE KEY TO PROVERBS AND THE WORD DILIGENCE.
  • 00:36:06.280 --> 00:36:11.040
  • I WAS IMPACTED BY YOUR EXAMPLE OF SAYING,
  • 00:36:11.060 --> 00:36:14.210
  • YOU KNOW I CAN CHOP DOWN A TREE WITH A HAMMER,
  • 00:36:14.230 --> 00:36:18.160
  • AND SOMEBODY COULD LOOK OUT A WINDOW
  • 00:36:18.180 --> 00:36:20.280
  • AND THERE YOU ARE WORKING AWAY,
  • 00:36:21.000 --> 00:36:23.100
  • VERY DILIGENT IN THE WAY THAT WE THINK THE WORD MEANS,
  • 00:36:23.120 --> 00:36:28.120
  • SOMEBODY THAT'S DOING SOMETHING, VERY HARD WORK,
  • 00:36:28.140 --> 00:36:31.050
  • AND THAT KIND OF THING,
  • 00:36:31.070 --> 00:36:32.150
  • BUT THAT'S NOT DILIGENT.
  • 00:36:32.170 --> 00:36:35.080
  • DILIGENCE IS GOING TO GET A CHAINSAW
  • 00:36:35.100 --> 00:36:37.140
  • AND CUTTING IT RIGHT DOWN VERY QUICKLY.
  • 00:36:37.160 --> 00:36:39.180
  • AND SO THE IDEA THAT DILIGENCE IS JUST HARD WORK
  • 00:36:39.200 --> 00:36:43.180
  • IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE WAY THAT YOU ARE STARTING
  • 00:36:43.200 --> 00:36:46.280
  • TO BREAK DOWN THIS,
  • 00:36:47.000 --> 00:36:49.000
  • AND WE HAVE BOTH BEEN KIND OF BLOWN AWAY BY IT.
  • 00:36:49.020 --> 00:36:52.010
  • AND I KNOW THAT LAURI
  • 00:36:52.030 --> 00:36:56.210
  • AND YOU KNOW, EARLIER IN THE BROADCAST SHE SAID
  • 00:36:56.230 --> 00:36:59.070
  • THAT HER FATHER HAD HER, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:36:59.090 --> 00:37:01.060
  • KIND OF DO THIS DOS AND DON'TS
  • 00:37:01.080 --> 00:37:03.130
  • WHERE YOU CAN TAKE PROVERBS, YOU CAN START WRITING DOWN
  • 00:37:03.150 --> 00:37:06.160
  • EVERYTHING PROVERBS SAYS TO DO
  • 00:37:06.180 --> 00:37:08.090
  • AND THEN EVERYTHING PROVERBS SAYS NOT TO DO.
  • 00:37:08.110 --> 00:37:11.030
  • AND YOU DID THAT.
  • 00:37:11.050 --> 00:37:12.220
  • AND THAT'S PART OF WHAT MAKES YOU WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:37:12.240 --> 00:37:16.190
  • BUT WHEN YOU WERE BACKSTAGE,
  • 00:37:16.210 --> 00:37:18.100
  • YOU WALKED BY ME VERY QUICKLY
  • 00:37:18.120 --> 00:37:20.110
  • AND YOU SAID, "I AM LOVING THIS BOOK."
  • 00:37:20.130 --> 00:37:23.190
  • WHAT DID YOU READ THAT IMPACTED YOU?
  • 00:37:23.210 --> 00:37:26.140
  • - I HAD BEEN JUST STANDING THERE TAKING TO HIM.
  • 00:37:26.160 --> 00:37:28.200
  • I JUST THINK IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:37:28.220 --> 00:37:30.280
  • I MEAN, I THINK IT'S SO LAID OUT FOR YOU.
  • 00:37:31.000 --> 00:37:34.160
  • IT SEEMS LIKE, YOU KNOW, I SIT HERE AND THINK
  • 00:37:34.180 --> 00:37:38.120
  • THAT WOMEN WOULD GET SO MUCH,
  • 00:37:38.140 --> 00:37:41.120
  • BUT EVEN THE MEN, MEN WOULD GET SO MUCH OUT OF IT.
  • 00:37:41.140 --> 00:37:44.210
  • YOU KNOW IT'S JUST HOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO LIFE.
  • 00:37:44.230 --> 00:37:49.160
  • - AND THEY'RE SO SIMPLE, AND THEY'RE ALL BASED ON PROVERBS.
  • 00:37:49.180 --> 00:37:51.230
  • FOR EXAMPLE, A SOFT ANSWER TURNS AWAY WRATH
  • 00:37:51.250 --> 00:37:54.110
  • BUT HARSH WORDS STIR UP ANGER, OKAY.
  • 00:37:54.130 --> 00:37:57.210
  • SO IT'S LEARNING HOW TO BE SOFT.
  • 00:37:57.230 --> 00:37:59.150
  • IT'S LEARNING SPECIFICALLY HOW WE CAN GO
  • 00:37:59.170 --> 00:38:02.240
  • TO THOSE DEEPER LEVELS OF COMMUNICATION,
  • 00:38:02.260 --> 00:38:05.000
  • DEEPER LEVELS OF CONFLICT,
  • 00:38:05.020 --> 00:38:07.170
  • IN THE WAY THAT GOD PRESCRIBES.
  • 00:38:07.190 --> 00:38:12.100
  • - THE RESET SWITCH I THINK THAT I WOULD LIKE TO HIT IS
  • 00:38:12.120 --> 00:38:17.080
  • AS WE ARE, WE'VE GOT ABOUT 10 MINUTES OR SO LEFT
  • 00:38:17.100 --> 00:38:19.180
  • IN OUR TIME TOGETHER, STEVEN,
  • 00:38:19.200 --> 00:38:22.010
  • AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED,
  • 00:38:22.030 --> 00:38:25.100
  • KING SOLOMON, WHO ULTIMATELY ASKED FOR WISDOM,
  • 00:38:25.120 --> 00:38:30.040
  • AND RECEIVED IT.
  • 00:38:30.060 --> 00:38:31.190
  • WROTE PROVERBS, IGNORED IT, AND SUFFERED THE CONSEQUENCES
  • 00:38:31.210 --> 00:38:36.140
  • OF NOT BASICALLY LIVING BY THE RULES
  • 00:38:36.160 --> 00:38:40.090
  • THAT HE KNEW TO LIVE BY.
  • 00:38:40.110 --> 00:38:42.260
  • LOOK, THIS BOOK IS DIFFERENT THAN READING PROVERBS TO ME
  • 00:38:42.280 --> 00:38:48.080
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE A COUPLE OF SPECIFIC THINGS.
  • 00:38:48.100 --> 00:38:51.180
  • YOU HAVE CATEGORIZED BASICALLY THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:38:51.200 --> 00:38:56.060
  • THEN YOU'VE BROKEN DOWN AND PRIORITIZED THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
  • 00:38:56.080 --> 00:39:00.290
  • AND YOU HAVE THEN PRACTICALLY EXPLAINED
  • 00:39:01.010 --> 00:39:06.070
  • USING YOUR OWN LIFE AND OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES
  • 00:39:06.090 --> 00:39:09.090
  • IN REGARD TO THE BEFORE AND THE AFTER PROVERBS.
  • 00:39:09.110 --> 00:39:14.200
  • SO IN CASE SOMEBODY JUST TUNED IN,
  • 00:39:14.220 --> 00:39:19.150
  • KIND OF WHY DOES THIS BOOK HELP SOMEBODY
  • 00:39:19.170 --> 00:39:23.050
  • IF YOU ARE KIND OF RESET
  • 00:39:23.070 --> 00:39:25.070
  • AND YOU'VE GOT A BRAND NEW LITTLE CHUNK OF AUDIENCE HERE,
  • 00:39:25.090 --> 00:39:27.270
  • AND THEY'VE TUNED IN SOMEWHERE ALONG OUR CONVERSATION,
  • 00:39:27.290 --> 00:39:30.200
  • THEY KNOW WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:39:30.220 --> 00:39:32.000
  • BUT WHY THIS BOOK, WHY DOES IT HELP SOMEBODY?
  • 00:39:32.020 --> 00:39:37.270
  • - HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SAID, QUOTE,
  • 00:39:37.290 --> 00:39:41.220
  • "I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS."
  • 00:39:41.240 --> 00:39:43.210
  • SOMETHING HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:39:43.230 --> 00:39:45.080
  • YOU SAY SOMETHING AND YOU THINK WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
  • 00:39:45.100 --> 00:39:49.020
  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:39:49.040 --> 00:39:50.160
  • OR HE SAYS SOMETHING AND YOU GO,
  • 00:39:50.180 --> 00:39:53.120
  • "WHY DID HE SAY, I DON'T UNDERSTAND."
  • 00:39:53.140 --> 00:39:56.150
  • GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:39:56.170 --> 00:39:57.220
  • PROVERBS GIVES YOU UNDERSTANDING FIRST.
  • 00:39:57.240 --> 00:40:00.150
  • UNDERSTANDING THINGS FROM GOD'S PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:40:00.170 --> 00:40:03.280
  • GOD REVEALS HIS HEART AND HIS MIND IN PROVERBS.
  • 00:40:04.000 --> 00:40:06.230
  • AND SO A, YOU GAIN UNDERSTANDING,
  • 00:40:06.250 --> 00:40:09.200
  • SECOND, WELL FIRST YOU GET KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:40:09.220 --> 00:40:12.030
  • THEN UNDERSTANDING, WHICH IS THE USE OF THAT KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:40:12.050 --> 00:40:14.140
  • THEN COMES WISDOM.
  • 00:40:14.160 --> 00:40:16.010
  • NOW HERE'S THE GOOD THING.
  • 00:40:16.030 --> 00:40:17.270
  • THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN BECAUSE I MADE ONE BAD INVESTMENT
  • 00:40:17.290 --> 00:40:21.260
  • WHERE I LOST MOST OF MY LIFE SAVINGS IN 2001.
  • 00:40:21.280 --> 00:40:26.200
  • AND I WAS SO DEPRESSED I TOLD MY WIFE,
  • 00:40:26.220 --> 00:40:29.200
  • "I'VE GOT TO SLEEP IN THE GUEST ROOM TONIGHT."
  • 00:40:29.220 --> 00:40:31.110
  • AND I OPEN UP, IT WAS THE 14TH OF THE MONTH
  • 00:40:31.130 --> 00:40:35.140
  • SO I OPEN UP TO CHAPTER 14.
  • 00:40:35.160 --> 00:40:37.090
  • I HAVEN'T BEEN IN PROVERBS FOR YEARS,
  • 00:40:37.110 --> 00:40:39.080
  • AND I COME TO VERSE 15 WHICH SAYS,
  • 00:40:39.100 --> 00:40:41.250
  • "THE SIMPLE MAN BELIEVES EVERYTHING,
  • 00:40:41.270 --> 00:40:45.030
  • "BUT A WISE MAN LOOKS WELL INTO A MATTER."
  • 00:40:45.050 --> 00:40:47.220
  • AND I GO, OH LORD, I DIDN'T LOOK WELL INTO THE MATTER.
  • 00:40:47.240 --> 00:40:50.280
  • THEN I THOUGHT OF TWO OTHER BAD INVESTMENTS.
  • 00:40:51.000 --> 00:40:53.010
  • AND I SAID, "LORD, I DIDN'T LOOK WELL
  • 00:40:53.030 --> 00:40:54.090
  • "INTO THAT MATTER EITHER."
  • 00:40:54.110 --> 00:40:55.270
  • I MEAN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS LOST
  • 00:40:55.290 --> 00:40:57.210
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T LOOK WELL INTO THE MATTER
  • 00:40:57.230 --> 00:40:58.270
  • AND I THOUGHT, LORD, HOW MANY OTHER STUPID THINGS
  • 00:40:58.290 --> 00:41:00.280
  • HAVE I DONE BECAUSE I HAVEN'T BEEN IN PROVERBS
  • 00:41:01.000 --> 00:41:02.130
  • FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS?
  • 00:41:02.150 --> 00:41:04.040
  • AND I THOUGHT, HOW MANY STUPID THINGS DOES EVERYBODY DO
  • 00:41:04.060 --> 00:41:07.070
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT INTO PROVERBS?
  • 00:41:07.090 --> 00:41:09.100
  • AND THEN GOD'S, LITERALLY I SAID THAT,
  • 00:41:09.120 --> 00:41:12.090
  • AND THEN THE LORD SAID, "I WANT YOU TO ORGANIZE PROVERBS
  • 00:41:12.110 --> 00:41:14.130
  • "INTO TOPICS." SO THE NEXT DAY I TELL MY WIFE,
  • 00:41:14.150 --> 00:41:17.250
  • "I KNOW WHY WE LOST ALL THE MONEY!"
  • 00:41:17.270 --> 00:41:19.090
  • AND SHE SAID, "WHY?"
  • 00:41:19.110 --> 00:41:21.040
  • I SAID, "GOD WANTS ME TO WRITE A BOOK ON PROVERBS!"
  • 00:41:21.060 --> 00:41:23.170
  • - WOW.
  • 00:41:23.190 --> 00:41:25.200
  • - AND SHE SAID, COULDN'T HE HAVE TOLD YOU THAT
  • 00:41:25.220 --> 00:41:26.170
  • A LOT CHEAPER?
  • 00:41:26.190 --> 00:41:28.210
  • - YEAH RIGHT.
  • 00:41:28.230 --> 00:41:29.280
  • - SO THIS BOOK COST ME MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
  • 00:41:30.000 --> 00:41:31.230
  • BUT I WROTE THE BOOK,
  • 00:41:31.250 --> 00:41:33.130
  • I STARTED ORGANIZING IT THAT DAY.
  • 00:41:33.150 --> 00:41:35.270
  • GOD RETURNED THE MONEY BACK TO ME OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:41:35.290 --> 00:41:39.060
  • ONCE AGAIN, DILIGENCE, IT DIDN'T JUST FALL OUT OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:41:39.080 --> 00:41:42.160
  • I HAD TO BE DILIGENT, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:41:42.180 --> 00:41:44.150
  • AND THE LORD SHOWED ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:41:44.170 --> 00:41:46.190
  • AND THE MONEY CAME BACK AND THE BUSINESSES CAME BACK.
  • 00:41:46.210 --> 00:41:49.170
  • - LET'S MAKE SURE,
  • 00:41:49.190 --> 00:41:51.070
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:41:51.090 --> 00:41:52.210
  • STEVEN,
  • 00:41:52.230 --> 00:41:57.060
  • YOU SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL OUR AUDIENCE LOOKS.
  • 00:41:57.080 --> 00:41:59.140
  • I WONDER IF THEY'D BE HONEST.
  • 00:41:59.160 --> 00:42:00.270
  • ANYBODY EVERY MADE A DUMB MISTAKE?
  • 00:42:00.290 --> 00:42:03.140
  • (AUDIENCE YELLS)
  • 00:42:03.160 --> 00:42:04.270
  • ALRIGHT, WE GOT A PRETTY AUDIENCE,
  • 00:42:04.290 --> 00:42:06.110
  • THEY'RE PRETTY HONEST.
  • 00:42:06.130 --> 00:42:08.280
  • - THERE'S SOME ANGELS UP THERE THOUGH.
  • 00:42:09.000 --> 00:42:10.190
  • - THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:42:10.210 --> 00:42:12.030
  • BUT LET'S MAKE SURE THAT IF SOMEBODY
  • 00:42:12.050 --> 00:42:16.230
  • IS WATCHING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:42:16.250 --> 00:42:18.020
  • AND THEY'VE TUNED INTO TRINITY BROADCASTING
  • 00:42:18.040 --> 00:42:20.170
  • THAT THEY DON'T MISTAKE ANYTHING THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:42:20.190 --> 00:42:27.000
  • AS A "GET RICH QUICK" SCHEME.
  • 00:42:27.020 --> 00:42:30.050
  • LET'S MAKE SURE WE DESTROY THAT RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:42:30.070 --> 00:42:34.080
  • HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND
  • 00:42:34.100 --> 00:42:36.030
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:42:36.050 --> 00:42:38.060
  • - BECAUSE SOLOMON SAID, "HE WHO IS HASTY TO GET RICH
  • 00:42:38.080 --> 00:42:42.210
  • "SURELY, ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, HE WILL GET POOR."
  • 00:42:42.230 --> 00:42:46.180
  • HE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:42:46.200 --> 00:42:48.150
  • SO WE DEFINE WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO BE RICH.
  • 00:42:48.170 --> 00:42:53.120
  • RICHES, I DON'T WANT TO BE RICH IN THIS WORLD
  • 00:42:53.140 --> 00:42:56.090
  • AND COME, JESUS SAID, "LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES
  • 00:42:56.110 --> 00:42:58.030
  • "TREASURES ON EARTH WHERE MOTH AND RUST DOTH CORRUPT
  • 00:42:58.050 --> 00:43:00.180
  • "AND THIEVES BREAK IN AND STEAL.
  • 00:43:00.200 --> 00:43:02.190
  • "BUT LAY UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES IN HEAVEN."
  • 00:43:02.210 --> 00:43:05.070
  • I DEFINE RICHES IN HERE THE WAY GOD DEFINES IT.
  • 00:43:05.090 --> 00:43:08.210
  • IN FACT, THAT SAME NIGHT, THAT I SAW THAT PROVERBS 14:15,
  • 00:43:08.230 --> 00:43:12.290
  • I DIDN'T STOP.
  • 00:43:13.010 --> 00:43:14.090
  • I WENT CLEAR TO THE END OF PROVERBS THAT NIGHT,
  • 00:43:14.110 --> 00:43:16.210
  • AND IN THE TWENTIES IT SAYS,
  • 00:43:16.230 --> 00:43:19.140
  • "DON'T EVEN CONSIDER CHASING AFTER WEALTH,
  • 00:43:19.160 --> 00:43:22.100
  • "BECAUSE IF YOU EVEN CONSIDER THAT,
  • 00:43:22.120 --> 00:43:24.160
  • "AND YOU CHASE AFTER WEALTH, IT'LL TAKE UP WINGS
  • 00:43:24.180 --> 00:43:27.150
  • "LIKE AN EAGLE AND FLY OFF INTO HEAVENS."
  • 00:43:27.170 --> 00:43:29.290
  • EVERY LOSS I HAVE EXPERIENCED FINANCIALLY
  • 00:43:30.010 --> 00:43:33.090
  • WAS WHEN I CHASED AFTER MONEY.
  • 00:43:33.110 --> 00:43:35.190
  • AND THAT'S MY INVESTMENT LIFE.
  • 00:43:35.210 --> 00:43:37.070
  • SO MY WIFE, SHE TOOK ALL THE INVESTMENT AWAY FROM ME,
  • 00:43:37.090 --> 00:43:40.100
  • AND WE HAVE AN INVESTMENT COMMITTEE.
  • 00:43:40.120 --> 00:43:43.150
  • SHE'S PRESIDENT, SHE GETS TWO VOTES, I GET NONE.
  • 00:43:43.170 --> 00:43:46.220
  • AND SHE TRUSTS PEOPLE THAT MAKE INVESTMENTS.
  • 00:43:46.240 --> 00:43:49.080
  • SO NOW OUR INVESTMENTS DO REAL WELL
  • 00:43:49.100 --> 00:43:50.200
  • BECAUSE WE'RE NOT THE EXPERTS.
  • 00:43:50.220 --> 00:43:52.290
  • BUT SOLOMON CONTRASTS THAT, HE SAID,
  • 00:43:53.010 --> 00:43:56.030
  • "BUT IN ALL LABOR THERE IS PROFIT."
  • 00:43:56.050 --> 00:44:00.080
  • SO YOU FOCUS IN ON WHAT YOUR LABOR IS
  • 00:44:00.100 --> 00:44:03.030
  • AND THAT'S WHERE THE BLESSING COMES, WHEN YOU'RE DILIGENT.
  • 00:44:03.050 --> 00:44:06.130
  • SO WE SHOW YOU HOW TO BRING DILIGENCE TO YOUR LABOR.
  • 00:44:06.150 --> 00:44:08.230
  • IT'S NOT GET RICH QUICK.
  • 00:44:08.250 --> 00:44:10.110
  • I HATE THE SOUND OF IT.
  • 00:44:10.130 --> 00:44:12.050
  • IN FACT I COME AGAINST THAT,
  • 00:44:12.070 --> 00:44:13.240
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT I KNOW ABOUT WHAT JESUS SAID
  • 00:44:13.260 --> 00:44:17.060
  • THAT LIFE'S NOT ABOUT CHASING WEALTH.
  • 00:44:17.080 --> 00:44:20.000
  • YOU DO THAT AND YOU'RE THAT MAN
  • 00:44:20.020 --> 00:44:22.260
  • WHO CAN'T GET THROUGH THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE.
  • 00:44:22.280 --> 00:44:25.190
  • - BUT THIS IS LIFE-CHANGING IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:44:25.210 --> 00:44:29.150
  • IF YOU'RE A STUDENT, IF YOU'RE A MOTHER,
  • 00:44:29.170 --> 00:44:33.010
  • IF YOU'RE A WIFE, IF YOU'RE A HUSBAND.
  • 00:44:33.030 --> 00:44:36.060
  • IF YOU'RE, ANYTHING YOU ARE, THIS HAS THE WISDOM FOR YOU.
  • 00:44:36.080 --> 00:44:40.090
  • IT'S A HOW TO.
  • 00:44:40.110 --> 00:44:42.070
  • - STEVEN: IT IS A HOW TO.
  • 00:44:42.090 --> 00:44:43.130
  • - PROVERBS IS A HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:44:43.150 --> 00:44:45.060
  • YOU KNOW, YOU GIVE TO THE POOR, YOU LEND TO THE LORD
  • 00:44:45.080 --> 00:44:47.220
  • AND THE LORD REPAYS YOU. I MEAN THOSE ARE LAWS OF GOD
  • 00:44:47.240 --> 00:44:51.160
  • THAT YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:44:51.180 --> 00:44:53.200
  • AND THIS BREAKS IT DOWN SO WELL THAT WE CAN UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:44:53.220 --> 00:44:58.270
  • I HAVE THE LAST COUPLE DAYS, I'VE LISTENED TO THE WHOLE BOOK
  • 00:44:58.290 --> 00:45:04.090
  • I LOVE TO LISTEN TO THE BIBLE, SO I'VE LISTENED TO PROVERBS
  • 00:45:04.110 --> 00:45:06.130
  • YESTERDAY AND TODAY, THE WHOLE BOOK.
  • 00:45:06.150 --> 00:45:09.270
  • YOU KNOW AND YOU CAN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:45:09.290 --> 00:45:11.220
  • I'LL BE CURLING MY HAIR OR DO SOMETHING AND IT'S PLAYING
  • 00:45:11.240 --> 00:45:14.140
  • AND YOU THINK, OH MAN, I'VE SEEN SOMEONE DO THAT,
  • 00:45:14.160 --> 00:45:16.080
  • OH MAN I'VE SEEN, OH MAN I'VE DONE THAT.
  • 00:45:16.100 --> 00:45:18.110
  • (LAUGHS)
  • 00:45:18.130 --> 00:45:19.250
  • SO JUST KEEP IT IN CHECK.
  • 00:45:19.270 --> 00:45:21.200
  • AND I LOVE WHAT YOU SAID, I HEARD YOU SAY
  • 00:45:21.220 --> 00:45:25.020
  • THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO MEMORIZE IT.
  • 00:45:25.040 --> 00:45:27.030
  • BECAUSE I KNOW I TRIED SO HARD TO MEMORIZE PROVERBS.
  • 00:45:27.050 --> 00:45:31.160
  • AND THAT'S A LOT FOR ME.
  • 00:45:31.180 --> 00:45:35.150
  • BUT YOU SAID YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER BECAUSE GOD.
  • 00:45:35.170 --> 00:45:37.250
  • - NO, YOU MEDITATE ON IT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES HIS WORK
  • 00:45:37.270 --> 00:45:41.080
  • TO BRING IT TO YOUR MEMORY.
  • 00:45:41.100 --> 00:45:43.190
  • BEFORE WE WRAP, CAN I JUST SAY SOMETHING TO YOUR AUDIENCE?
  • 00:45:43.210 --> 00:45:46.000
  • - MATT: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:45:46.020 --> 00:45:47.050
  • - FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR COMING,
  • 00:45:47.070 --> 00:45:49.130
  • BUT I LOOK AT YOUR FACES, THERE'S SOME OF YOU HERE,
  • 00:45:49.150 --> 00:45:52.130
  • THAT I REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE YOUNG.
  • 00:45:52.150 --> 00:45:55.040
  • IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO,
  • 00:45:55.060 --> 00:45:56.200
  • BUT I DIDN'T HAVE ANY HOPE, I DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:45:56.220 --> 00:46:01.180
  • AND I AM JUST SO GRATEFUL YOU'RE HERE
  • 00:46:01.200 --> 00:46:03.210
  • BECAUSE THIS IS A SHORTCUT.
  • 00:46:03.230 --> 00:46:05.070
  • IF YOU COULD JUST HONESTLY,
  • 00:46:05.090 --> 00:46:07.210
  • THIS ISN'T A SUBSTITUTE FOR STUDYING PROVERBS.
  • 00:46:07.230 --> 00:46:10.170
  • GET INTO PROVERBS EVERY DAY,
  • 00:46:10.190 --> 00:46:12.160
  • BUT WHEN YOU GET YOUR BOOK,
  • 00:46:12.180 --> 00:46:14.250
  • BECAUSE HE'S GIVING YOU ALL A BOOK,
  • 00:46:14.270 --> 00:46:17.090
  • THIS ISN'T A JOKE, TAKE IT SERIOUSLY,
  • 00:46:17.110 --> 00:46:20.140
  • AND YOU WILL AVOID THE MISTAKES AND THE TRAPS
  • 00:46:20.160 --> 00:46:23.130
  • THAT I FELL INTO.
  • 00:46:23.150 --> 00:46:24.150
  • I'VE HAD TO LOSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
  • 00:46:24.170 --> 00:46:26.090
  • TO LEARN WHAT'S IN THIS BOOK.
  • 00:46:26.110 --> 00:46:27.180
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THAT FAR.
  • 00:46:27.200 --> 00:46:29.040
  • I HAD TO HEAR A BOSS, JOB NUMBER THREE,
  • 00:46:29.060 --> 00:46:32.110
  • SAY I WAS THE SINGLE GREATEST DISAPPOINTMENT
  • 00:46:32.130 --> 00:46:34.230
  • IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER AND THAT I WOULD NEVER
  • 00:46:34.250 --> 00:46:37.220
  • SUCCEED IN MARKETING.
  • 00:46:37.240 --> 00:46:39.250
  • AND I WAS ONLY 23 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:46:39.270 --> 00:46:41.140
  • I HAD SIX MORE JOBS TO LOSE IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.
  • 00:46:41.160 --> 00:46:44.090
  • I DIDN'T HAVE A PRAYER.
  • 00:46:44.110 --> 00:46:47.110
  • AND I WENT THROUGH THOSE JOBS
  • 00:46:47.130 --> 00:46:48.270
  • AND I HAD A WIFE AND A CHILD AND I COULDN'T PROVIDE.
  • 00:46:48.290 --> 00:46:52.020
  • I WAS HOPELESS.
  • 00:46:52.040 --> 00:46:54.050
  • I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE FRUSTRATED,
  • 00:46:54.070 --> 00:46:56.260
  • TO BE STUCK, TO NO MATTER WHAT I DO,
  • 00:46:56.280 --> 00:46:59.230
  • I JUST COULDN'T GET UNSTUCK.
  • 00:46:59.250 --> 00:47:02.190
  • ALL IT TOOK WAS THE BOOK OF PROVERBS.
  • 00:47:02.210 --> 00:47:05.230
  • AND IT WAS LEARNING, WRITING THINGS DOWN,
  • 00:47:05.250 --> 00:47:08.210
  • IT WAS A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:47:08.230 --> 00:47:11.000
  • TWO YEARS OF STUDYING PROVERBS, THAT'S A LOT.
  • 00:47:11.020 --> 00:47:14.090
  • WE'VE SAVED YOU SOME TIME.
  • 00:47:14.110 --> 00:47:16.230
  • BUT READ WHAT THIS SAYS.
  • 00:47:16.250 --> 00:47:17.260
  • WE REDEFINE WHAT HOPE IS.
  • 00:47:17.280 --> 00:47:19.170
  • WE SHOW YOU HOW TO DEAL WITH CRITICISM, CONFLICT,
  • 00:47:19.190 --> 00:47:22.200
  • YOU KNOW, ALL OF THOSE THINGS THAT JUST TEAR YOU DOWN.
  • 00:47:22.220 --> 00:47:26.130
  • WHEN YOU LEARN SOLOMON'S DEFINITION OF HOPE,
  • 00:47:26.150 --> 00:47:30.000
  • IT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT DEFINITION
  • 00:47:30.020 --> 00:47:32.150
  • AND IT LITERALLY BECOMES YOUR DEFINITION.
  • 00:47:32.170 --> 00:47:34.210
  • EVERY DAY IT LIFTS YOU UP.
  • 00:47:34.230 --> 00:47:36.200
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL TAKE WHAT YOU LEARN IN PROVERBS,
  • 00:47:36.220 --> 00:47:41.160
  • AND IF YOU'LL LET HIM,
  • 00:47:41.180 --> 00:47:43.090
  • HE'LL TRANSLATE IT INTO YOUR DAILY ACTIVITY
  • 00:47:43.110 --> 00:47:46.220
  • AND WHEN THAT CHANGES, EVERYTHING IN LIFE CHANGES.
  • 00:47:46.240 --> 00:47:50.000
  • IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING IN A RELATIONSHIP RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:47:50.020 --> 00:47:53.140
  • I BEG YOU, DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:47:53.160 --> 00:47:57.170
  • LEARN WHAT SOLOMON SAID ABOUT CONFLICT
  • 00:47:57.190 --> 00:48:00.150
  • AND ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS, IT'S IN HERE.
  • 00:48:00.170 --> 00:48:03.210
  • AND MAN, YOU CAN GET THROUGH IT,
  • 00:48:03.230 --> 00:48:05.100
  • YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO BUILD EACH OTHER'S DREAMS UP,
  • 00:48:05.120 --> 00:48:07.270
  • YOU CAN LEARN WHAT THOSE GREAT NEEDS ARE.
  • 00:48:07.290 --> 00:48:10.140
  • WHEN YOU GET INTO PROVERBS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:48:10.160 --> 00:48:12.050
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST TAKE IT AT FACE VALUE,
  • 00:48:12.070 --> 00:48:14.200
  • THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO DIG.
  • 00:48:14.220 --> 00:48:16.040
  • SOLOMON SAYS DIG FOR WISDOM LIKE YOU DIG FOR BURIED TREASURE
  • 00:48:16.060 --> 00:48:20.170
  • OKAY, IT'S UNDER THERE.
  • 00:48:20.190 --> 00:48:22.060
  • SO WE SHOW YOU, WE SHOW YOU HOW TO TAKE A PROVERB,
  • 00:48:22.080 --> 00:48:25.120
  • HOW TO TAKE THE CONVERSE.
  • 00:48:25.140 --> 00:48:27.060
  • WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH.
  • 00:48:27.080 --> 00:48:29.190
  • WELL WHAT'S THE CONVERSE OF THAT?
  • 00:48:29.210 --> 00:48:31.070
  • BRING VISION IN AND THERE'S LIFE.
  • 00:48:31.090 --> 00:48:34.060
  • THEN WHAT ELSE DID HE SAID ABOUT VISION?
  • 00:48:34.080 --> 00:48:36.000
  • SO WE SHOW YOU HOW TO BRING ALL THE PROVERBS TOGETHER
  • 00:48:36.020 --> 00:48:38.220
  • SO A PICTURE IS FORMED AND THAT'S WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS.
  • 00:48:38.240 --> 00:48:43.250
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH LIFE STUMBLING
  • 00:48:43.270 --> 00:48:46.100
  • AND GUESSING AND FAILING.
  • 00:48:46.120 --> 00:48:49.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT PROVERBS SAYS.
  • 00:48:49.170 --> 00:48:52.270
  • SO THAT'S JUST A LITTLE THING I WANTED TO SAY.
  • 00:48:52.290 --> 00:48:55.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:48:55.020 --> 00:48:57.030
  • - LAURIE: THAT'S SO GOOD, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:48:57.050 --> 00:49:00.070
  • - STEVEN: CAN I SAY SOMETHING ABOUT TBN?
  • 00:49:00.090 --> 00:49:01.130
  • - PLEASE.
  • 00:49:01.150 --> 00:49:02.090
  • - OKAY, WHAT I LOVE ABOUT--
  • 00:49:02.110 --> 00:49:04.090
  • - LAURIE: WE LOVE TBN.
  • 00:49:04.110 --> 00:49:05.090
  • - I DO TOO.
  • 00:49:05.110 --> 00:49:06.240
  • I GO ALL OVER THE WORLD AND I TURN ON THE TV
  • 00:49:06.260 --> 00:49:09.010
  • AND THERE YOU GUYS ARE.
  • 00:49:09.030 --> 00:49:10.010
  • IT'S CRAZY WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:49:10.030 --> 00:49:13.110
  • IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 00:49:13.130 --> 00:49:14.200
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS IS A CHANCE FOR PEOPLE
  • 00:49:14.220 --> 00:49:18.090
  • NOT JUST TO GET THE BOOK,
  • 00:49:18.110 --> 00:49:20.130
  • BUT TO SUPPORT THIS MINISTRY.
  • 00:49:20.150 --> 00:49:22.180
  • WE DESPERATELY NEED TO GET THE GOSPEL OUT.
  • 00:49:22.200 --> 00:49:24.230
  • FOLKS WE ARE, I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK,
  • 00:49:24.250 --> 00:49:26.210
  • WE ARE IN THE END TIMES,
  • 00:49:26.230 --> 00:49:28.230
  • AND WE DON'T HAVE FOREVER.
  • 00:49:28.250 --> 00:49:30.130
  • WE NEED TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT,
  • 00:49:30.150 --> 00:49:32.170
  • AND TRINITY BROADCASTING,
  • 00:49:32.190 --> 00:49:34.030
  • GOD BLESS YOU GUYS FOR CARRYING ON YOUR FAMILY'S TRADITION
  • 00:49:34.050 --> 00:49:37.230
  • AND CARRYING ON THIS MINISTRY TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
  • 00:49:37.250 --> 00:49:40.150
  • AND I LOVE THAT THIS IS A DONOR GIFT
  • 00:49:40.170 --> 00:49:43.230
  • SO PEOPLE THAT ARE MINISTERING TO YOU,
  • 00:49:43.250 --> 00:49:46.210
  • THEY'RE GETTING THE GIFT,
  • 00:49:46.230 --> 00:49:48.070
  • BUT YOU TAKE THAT MONEY AND YOU USE IT FOR GOD'S KINGDOM
  • 00:49:48.090 --> 00:49:51.240
  • TO REACH PEOPLE WITH THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:49:51.260 --> 00:49:54.040
  • NOT JUST HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:49:54.060 --> 00:49:57.130
  • WE'VE HEARD IT 'TIL WE'RE BLUE IN THE FACE.
  • 00:49:57.150 --> 00:49:58.280
  • BUT PLACES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HEARD
  • 00:49:59.000 --> 00:50:01.090
  • THAT THE LORD JESUS EVEN CAME.
  • 00:50:01.110 --> 00:50:04.010
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:50:04.030 --> 00:50:05.190
  • - MATT: LET ME DO TWO THINGS REAL QUICK.
  • 00:50:05.210 --> 00:50:10.020
  • AS WE ARE SOMEWHAT WRAPPING UP OUR TIME TOGETHER,
  • 00:50:10.040 --> 00:50:13.150
  • I WANT TO, I'M GONNA CIRCLE BACK TO ONE THING
  • 00:50:13.170 --> 00:50:15.090
  • AND THEN I WANT YOU TO ASK, I WANT TO ASK YOU STEVEN
  • 00:50:15.110 --> 00:50:18.020
  • TO PRAY FOR OUR AUDIENCE.
  • 00:50:18.040 --> 00:50:19.040
  • - STEVEN: OH, I'D LOVE TO.
  • 00:50:19.060 --> 00:50:20.150
  • - THAT THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:50:20.170 --> 00:50:22.240
  • YOU KNOW, WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF 2018 HERE
  • 00:50:22.260 --> 00:50:28.180
  • AND I DON'T WANT THIS TO BE LIKE OVERLOOKED.
  • 00:50:28.200 --> 00:50:35.270
  • I WANT THIS TO BE, THE WAY IT IMPACTED ME,
  • 00:50:35.290 --> 00:50:39.030
  • WAS IT FELT LIKE I WAS UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:50:39.050 --> 00:50:40.240
  • FROM A PRACTICAL LEVER
  • 00:50:40.260 --> 00:50:42.140
  • OR A MODERN DAY INTERPRETATION OR A BREAKING DOWN OF,
  • 00:50:42.160 --> 00:50:47.120
  • I KEEP SAYING THAT TERM BECAUSE YOU KEEP
  • 00:50:47.140 --> 00:50:49.120
  • BREAKING DOWN THE PROVERBS.
  • 00:50:49.140 --> 00:50:51.220
  • - LIKE A BIBLE STUDY.
  • 00:50:51.240 --> 00:50:53.000
  • - AND APPLYING IT, IT'S LIKE A BIBLE STUDY.
  • 00:50:53.020 --> 00:50:54.120
  • AND IT'S SUCH A PRACTICAL THING.
  • 00:50:54.140 --> 00:50:56.090
  • YOU'VE DONE A GREAT JOB DOING THAT.
  • 00:50:56.110 --> 00:50:58.230
  • AND YOU SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORD DILIGENCE
  • 00:50:58.250 --> 00:51:01.220
  • AND THE WORD PARTNERING.
  • 00:51:01.240 --> 00:51:04.170
  • YOU REALIZE THAT FOR 45 YEARS,
  • 00:51:04.190 --> 00:51:08.270
  • MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE PARTNERED TO SEE THIS VISION
  • 00:51:08.290 --> 00:51:12.260
  • GO AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:51:12.280 --> 00:51:13.270
  • - STEVEN: AMAZING, AMAZING.
  • 00:51:13.290 --> 00:51:15.020
  • - SO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 00:51:15.040 --> 00:51:17.260
  • AND I GET TO MEET, EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE,
  • 00:51:17.280 --> 00:51:21.000
  • SOMEBODY THAT SAYS, "I WAS WATCHING TBN IN 1975."
  • 00:51:21.020 --> 00:51:25.140
  • "I WAS WATCHING TBN AND I'VE BEEN
  • 00:51:25.160 --> 00:51:27.120
  • "A FAITHFUL MONTHLY SUPPORTER."
  • 00:51:27.140 --> 00:51:30.140
  • BEFORE I MET LAURIE AND MARRIED HER, HER GRANDMOTHER,
  • 00:51:30.160 --> 00:51:34.030
  • SHE WOULD SEE HER GET OUT HER CHECKBOOK
  • 00:51:34.050 --> 00:51:35.260
  • AND A $25 A MONTH LITTLE DONATION WOULD GO
  • 00:51:35.280 --> 00:51:40.080
  • - FOR DECADES.
  • 00:51:40.100 --> 00:51:41.160
  • - TO KEEP TBN ON THE AIR.
  • 00:51:41.180 --> 00:51:43.220
  • AND THIS IS A WAY THAT WE RETURN SOMETHING BACK TO YOU.
  • 00:51:43.240 --> 00:51:47.260
  • TO HAND YOU BACK FOR YOUR GIFT TO US
  • 00:51:47.280 --> 00:51:51.270
  • A BOOK THAT CAN LITERALLY CHANGE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:51:51.290 --> 00:51:54.200
  • BECAUSE IT'S THE BIBLE
  • 00:51:54.220 --> 00:51:56.230
  • AND IT'S JUST BEEN BROKEN DOWN IN SUCH AN EFFECTIVE WAY.
  • 00:51:56.250 --> 00:52:00.280
  • AND THAT'S, WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE ANY CREDIT FOR IT.
  • 00:52:01.000 --> 00:52:03.270
  • STEVE'S NOT GONNA TAKE ANY CREDIT FOR IT.
  • 00:52:03.290 --> 00:52:05.060
  • HE'S JUST GONNA SAY, LOOK, I LIVED MY LIFE,
  • 00:52:05.080 --> 00:52:08.060
  • VERY UNSUCCESSFULLY, AND THEN GARY SMALLEY
  • 00:52:08.080 --> 00:52:12.040
  • CHANGED MY LIFE BY HAVING ME STUDY PROVERBS
  • 00:52:12.060 --> 00:52:14.270
  • AND THEN HE WENT ON TO CREATE A BUSINESS
  • 00:52:14.290 --> 00:52:17.260
  • WITH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF SALES.
  • 00:52:17.280 --> 00:52:20.030
  • AND SO THIS ISN'T A GET RICH QUICK THING,
  • 00:52:20.050 --> 00:52:23.220
  • IT'S ABOUT DILIGENCE.
  • 00:52:23.240 --> 00:52:25.020
  • AND YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS,
  • 00:52:25.040 --> 00:52:26.290
  • BUT UNTIL YOU READ THIS BOOK,
  • 00:52:27.010 --> 00:52:28.050
  • I'M NOT SURE YOU DO KNOW WHAT IT MEANS.
  • 00:52:28.070 --> 00:52:30.030
  • SO LET'S JUST MAKE SURE THAT THE INFORMATION THAT WE'VE
  • 00:52:30.050 --> 00:52:33.260
  • HOPEFULLY COMMUNICATED WELL TO OUR AUDIENCE,
  • 00:52:33.280 --> 00:52:39.010
  • THAT THEIR PARTNERSHIP CONTINUES THIS MONTH
  • 00:52:39.030 --> 00:52:42.000
  • WITH THIS BOOK, AMAZING BOOK.
  • 00:52:42.020 --> 00:52:44.250
  • OKAY, AMAZING BOOK, OKAY.
  • 00:52:44.270 --> 00:52:47.100
  • BUT LET'S MAKE SURE, LET'S JUST KIND OF SEAL OUR WORDS
  • 00:52:47.120 --> 00:52:50.230
  • INTO THE LIVES OF THE VIEWING AUDIENCE.
  • 00:52:50.250 --> 00:52:53.170
  • IF YOU DO THAT'D BE AWESOME.
  • 00:52:53.190 --> 00:52:54.190
  • - YOU BET. - THANK YOU, STEVEN.
  • 00:52:54.210 --> 00:52:56.100

  • THAT WE OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD BE THE WISE ONES.
  • 00:53:01.020 --> 00:53:04.160
  • FATHER, YOU DIDN'T LEAVE US CLUELESS,
  • 00:53:04.180 --> 00:53:06.050
  • BUT YOU GAVE US A BOOK OF WISDOM
  • 00:53:06.070 --> 00:53:09.090
  • SO THAT WE COULD HONOR YOU.
  • 00:53:09.110 --> 00:53:10.180
  • FATHER, WE THANK YOU THAT YOU,
  • 00:53:10.200 --> 00:53:13.010
  • AND REVERING YOU AND YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE IN OUR LIVES
  • 00:53:13.030 --> 00:53:16.170
  • IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM.
  • 00:53:16.190 --> 00:53:17.200
  • I PRAY FOR OUR VIEWING AUDIENCE,
  • 00:53:17.220 --> 00:53:19.230
  • I PRAY FOR EVERY MEMBER OF OUR STUDIO AUDIENCE.
  • 00:53:19.250 --> 00:53:22.240
  • FATHER, MAKE US WISE TO FOLLOW YOU, TO SERVE YOU,
  • 00:53:22.260 --> 00:53:27.050
  • TO REACH THE WORLD WITH YOUR GOSPEL.
  • 00:53:27.070 --> 00:53:30.060
  • FATHER, THAT WE MIGHT BE THAT RIGHTEOUS LIGHT
  • 00:53:30.080 --> 00:53:33.060
  • THAT PEOPLE LOOK AT WHAT WE ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:53:33.080 --> 00:53:35.210
  • AND GIVE YOU THE GLORY.
  • 00:53:35.230 --> 00:53:37.140

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:54:18.070 --> 00:54:30.010
  • - HAVE YOU EVER ASKED, WHY ARE SOME SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:54:30.030 --> 00:54:32.140
  • AND OTHERS NOT?
  • 00:54:32.160 --> 00:54:33.180
