Pray with me for those who throughout time have died defending others, and for those who carry on without them
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
– John 15:13
DFID, the UK Government aid organization, launched a new program to promote entrepreneurs across Nigeria, India, Bangladesh, Zambia, and Malawi and help companies develop business models that benefit the poor. Large companies are encouraged to work with smaller ones to establish their distribution network. An example is Coca Cola. To date, more than 2,600 small distribution businesses have been formed as a result, creating direct employment for more than 12,000 people, and generating more than $500 million in revenues throughout East Africa.

Making Business Work for the Poor
The true measure of a man has nothing to do with status: life is not about prestige; it is about passion and purpose. It is about impacting the lives of others.
Taken as a whole, Proverbs 16:3 (Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed) is telling us that when we genuinely devote our work to the real Boss, over time, God will transform our mind set. He’ll change the way we view management and He’ll inoculate us from compromising His will on the job.

Management by Proverbs
It is not what you do for your children but what you taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
