Business deal and the homeless

Post by Powerhouse on Mon Oct 25, 2010 7:46 am

I woke up this morning from a very detailed dream.

I was working on a business deal and the seller of the company wanted to take the buyer's entourage of people (all men) on his big boat so we could 'work out the deal'.

On our way to the harbor, in a big RV, I saw many homeless people. I counted them off, saying to everyone "Look! There's a homeless guy. And another, and there's another! Ten, eleven, tweleve.... wow, there's thirteen, fourteen....." Etc.

I ended up very frustrated and commanded everyone on the RV's attention: "Listen up guys. We don't have to waste time going out for a boat ride to discuss this deal. We've talked about it til we're blue in the face. There are other things to be done that are also important. Let's go back to the office and get this deal done!"

They looked at me like I was crazy, but they agreed. When we were done, I was able to go back and bring food to those homeless folks.



I think I've got the gist of this, but would sure love to hear your thoughts - thanks! wave

Do you think this is about balance between work and ministry?

In a way. I understand it to be that business must get done in order to have the provision for ministry - but we can do the work smartly and quickly (no dilly-dallying), because the more important work is the ministry.

It really made my spirit jump - and I was able to help a homeless man I saw on the road today!! thumbs

Four weeks ago I had four deals that were in various stages along the way to finalization. As of now, only one is still viable. duh

So I am trudging onward. Praying that resurrection of some of these will happen &/or new ones will appear in their place!

This dream was very comforting to me - not fully sure why - but it was.



P.S. Thanks for your prayers, Mia! kiss

Did you feel comfort in the dream? Because this dream was about closing a deal.
