The Give-it-Forward Economy
An Inside-Out Business Economy
"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." - Luke 6:38 KJV
Our business/ministry is to love people…period...no strings attached!
We operate on a unique Freely Receive Business Model. We were taught to do business a very different way and initially set out to build a "brand" using the traditional internet marketing methods...an irresistible offer as a "lead magnet," a high value, low cost item as a "trip wire," "up-sells," etc. Trip wire...great term right? It reveals the spirit behind most marketing.
We don't want to be critical of anyone else, but the whole process just never really settled well in our hearts. We just wanted to use our God-given understanding, gifts, and abilities to serve people and the idea of charging them to love them, never felt right. We knew there had to be a better way, but also had home and business bills to pay, so we wrestled with this tension for quite some time.
Then, a brave new wave of entrepreneurship began to arise, using a very different business model. Specifically, we were touched by the hit series, "The Chosen," and the Pay-it-Forward method they used to finance, what we can only imagine is a very expensive production.
If you haven't seen the series, we high recommend it. Everything about this depiction of Jesus and His followers is excellent and of the highest quality. This model proved it is possible to add high value to lots of people, without cutting corners...even if many of those people cannot or will not pay for it.
Christ is our model. He gave His life for humanity, knowing full well many would never give Him anything in return. He didn't give to get something, but He knew His investment would multiply through people who would respond to Him with the right heart. That's the kind of love, we want to have. That's the kind of love we want to model; one where we're trusting, Him and not people to be our Source of supply. We have freely and abundantly received from God. We want to freely and abundantly give back to share His love with others.
We believe that love is the only right motive for investing in the lives of others. Otherwise, we inevitably give, with strings attached. So...we are on a journey of faith, and are entrusting ourselves to God to meet all of our needs.
Our appeal to you is primarily one to receive. We hope this website will become a daily source of support and encouragement to you on your journey. If you are blessed by what we have invested into you, we invite you to Give-it-Forward so someone else can receive too.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave…” - John 3:15 KJV
