  • ME.
  • 00:00:20.090 --> 00:00:20.290
  • AND BECAUSE YOU GAVE IT TO ME,

  • WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:00:43.290 --> 00:00:46.290
  • SO THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:48.230

  • FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:00:57.260 --> 00:00:58.190

  • HAVE A LEVEL OF CONSISTENCY
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.130
  • WHERE WE DO NOT COMPARE

  • OURSELVES TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:01:47.150 --> 00:01:48.260
  • BUT WE COMPARE OURSELVES TO

  • THE LIGHT OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:51.050

  • THERE'S SINGLE PEOPLE HERE
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.140
  • WHO ARE LISTENING,
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:28.040
  • AND THEY'RE GOING,
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:28.250
  • WELL I'M NOT INTO PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:02:28.250 --> 00:02:29.210

  • ARRIVE.
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:36.010
  • IF YOU WERE TO SIT
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:36.230
  • IN A BOARD ROOM WITH ATTORNEYS,
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:38.150
  • BEFORE YOU BEGAN TO ENTER INTO
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.000
  • A PARTNERSHIP OF BUSINESS,
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:41.100
  • THOSE ATTORNEYS WOULD SCOUR
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:42.200
  • THROUGH THE CONTRACT AND THEY
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:43.220
  • WOULD LOOK AT PAGE AFTER PAGE,
  • 00:02:43.220 --> 00:02:44.250
  • AND PARAGRAPH AFTER PARAGRAPH.
  • 00:02:44.250 --> 00:02:46.230
  • AND THEY WOULD WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:02:46.230 --> 00:02:47.140
  • THE DEFINITIONS OF A WORD.
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.230
  • AND THEY WOULD WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:02:48.230 --> 00:02:49.140
  • HOW THAT WORD AFFECTED
  • 00:02:49.140 --> 00:02:50.130
  • THE PERFORMANCE AND THE
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:51.070
  • EXPECTATIONS OF THEIR CLIENT.
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:52.260
  • WELL, WE SHOULD TAKE
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:53.260
  • THE SAME AMOUNT OF SCRUTINY
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:55.020
  • WHEN IT COMES TO OUR
  • 00:02:55.020 --> 00:02:55.240
  • RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:03:00.090
  • GOD DID.
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:01.290
  • THAT'S WHY HE WROTE IT DOWN
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:02.290
  • IN 66 BOOKS.
  • 00:03:02.290 --> 00:03:05.270
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, THEY DID.
  • 00:03:05.270 --> 00:03:07.260
  • IT WAS CALLED
  • 00:03:07.260 --> 00:03:08.120
  • "THE PROCESS OF BETROTHAL."
  • 00:03:08.120 --> 00:03:10.240
  • A "BETROTHAL" WAS WHEN
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:12.070
  • A YOUNG MAN EXPRESSED
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.100
  • INTEREST IN A YOUNG WOMAN.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.060
  • AND THE WAY HE WOULD DO THAT
  • 00:03:15.060 --> 00:03:16.110
  • IS HE WOULD DO TO HIS FATHER,
  • 00:03:16.110 --> 00:03:17.220
  • AND HE WOULD SAY, "DAD,
  • 00:03:17.220 --> 00:03:18.270
  • I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A DOWRY.
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:21.110
  • I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:22.240
  • TREASURE.
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:23.140
  • I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND GIFTS
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:25.060
  • TO THAT FAMILY;
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:26.070
  • THAT WE MIGHT ACQUIRE THE HAND
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:27.240
  • OF THEIR DAUGHTER
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:28.240
  • IN MARRIAGE."
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:30.240
  • WE FIRST SEE THIS WITH ELEAZAR,
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:32.260
  • WHO IS THE SERVANT OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:35.040
  • GOING TO THE LAND TO FIND
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:36.190
  • A WIFE FOR ISAAC.
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:37.210
  • WHY DID HE TAKE ALL THOSE
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:39.000
  • CAMELS?
  • 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:40.290
  • HE TOOK ALL THOSE CAMELS,
  • 00:03:40.290 --> 00:03:42.030
  • BECAUSE HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:03:42.030 --> 00:03:43.080
  • TO WHOMEVER WANTS TO MARRY
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:44.180
  • MY SON,
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:45.130
  • THEY'RE GOING TO GET ALL OF
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:46.060
  • THIS JEWELRY,
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.000
  • ALL THESE DRESSES,
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:48.040
  • AND ALL OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:50.210
  • I DON'T KNOW IF ISAAC WAS
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:51.190
  • UGLY,
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.070
  • BUT HE LOOKED A LOT BETTER
  • 00:03:52.070 --> 00:03:53.180
  • STANDING NEXT TO THOSE CAMELS.
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:55.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.020
  • AND SO WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IS
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:01.270
  • THAT THE FATHERS WOULD SIT DOWN
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:03.200
  • AND THEY WOULD VISIT.
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:04.130
  • AND HE'D SAY,
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:05.030
  • "MY SON LOVES YOUR DAUGHTER
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:06.240
  • AND HE WOULD LIKE TO MARRY
  • 00:04:06.240 --> 00:04:07.190
  • YOUR DAUGHTER.
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:08.080
  • AND HE'S WILLING TO GIVE TO
  • 00:04:08.080 --> 00:04:09.110
  • YOU THIS MUCH OF THIS,
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:10.280
  • AND THIS MUCH OF THAT,
  • 00:04:10.280 --> 00:04:11.270
  • AND THIS MUCH OF THIS,
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:12.240
  • AND THIS MUCH OF THAT
  • 00:04:12.240 --> 00:04:13.240
  • IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR DAUGHTER."
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:16.160
  • AND THE DAD WOULD SAY, "WELL,
  • 00:04:16.160 --> 00:04:17.170
  • BASED ON WHAT YOU'RE OFFERING,
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:18.210
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:19.210
  • ABOUT MY DAUGHTER."
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:20.160
  • AND HE WOULD BEGIN TO DISCUSS
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:21.200
  • ALL OF HER STRENGTHS
  • 00:04:21.200 --> 00:04:22.130
  • AND ALL OF HER WEAKNESSES.
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:23.180
  • AND THEY WOULD WRITE THESE
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:24.150
  • THINGS DOWN IN A CONTRACT.
  • 00:04:24.150 --> 00:04:26.060
  • AND THIS WOULD BECOME WHAT WE
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:27.290
  • NOW KNOW AS A MARRIAGE LICENSE.
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:32.240
  • WELL JESUS CHRIST IS CALLED
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:34.080
  • IN SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.110
  • "THE BRIDEGROOM."
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:38.000
  • HE IS THE ONE THAT GOD
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.180
  • BETROTHED TO US.
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:42.160
  • THIS IS WHY IN EPHESIANS,
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:43.280
  • WE ARE CALLED
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:44.250
  • "THE BRIDE OF CHRIST."
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:47.120
  • IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE.
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.230
  • IT'S A WONDERFUL PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:04:48.230 --> 00:04:50.110
  • AND IT'S PLAYED OUT IN EVERY

  • THE PERSON STANDING NEXT TO YOU.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:09.070
  • YOU'RE NOT BLINDFOLDED.
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.060
  • IT'S NOT A PINATA PARTY.

  • ON SUNDAY, "HI.

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:44.260
  • ONE OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:48.220
  • HAVE IN OUR MODERN CULTURE IS
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:50.080
  • THAT WE SPEND SO MUCH TIME
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:52.150
  • PRETENDING THAT THERE'S NO
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:54.010
  • "WORSE" THAT WHENEVER IT SHOWS
  • 00:08:54.010 --> 00:08:56.200

  • "YOU'VE CHANGED."
  • 00:08:58.050 --> 00:09:01.070
  • AND THE REALITY OF IT IS
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:03.000
  • WE JUST GOT TO KNOW YOU.
  • 00:09:03.000 --> 00:09:05.000

  • AND IT WAS ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:13.210
  • CONVERSATIONS THAT HUSBANDS
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:14.230
  • AND WIVES HAVE WHERE YOU ASK
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:16.010
  • QUESTIONS THAT THERE'S JUST
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:17.270
  • NO REAL GOOD ANSWER TO.
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:20.030
  • AT LEAST THAT'S A MAN'S
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:20.240
  • PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:23.260

  • ROMANTICALLY, AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:25.240
  • "HONEY --"
  • 00:09:25.240 --> 00:09:27.020

  • AND BLUE EYES.
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:31.160
  • I CAN'T HELP IT.

  • NEED TO KNOW,
  • 00:12:02.120 --> 00:12:03.290
  • "IN SICKNESS OR IN HEALTH."
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:08.230
  • NOW THE THING ABOUT SICKNESS
  • 00:12:08.230 --> 00:12:09.190
  • AND HEALTH,
  • 00:12:09.190 --> 00:12:10.060
  • I FIND THIS PRINCIPLE TO BE
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:12.090
  • IN THE WEDDING VOWS THAT
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:13.240
  • THE CONDITION YOU'RE IN THE DAY
  • 00:12:13.240 --> 00:12:15.100
  • YOU GET MARRIED IS NOT THE
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:16.070
  • CONDITION YOU'LL ALWAYS BE IN.
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:19.010
  • CONDITIONS CHANGE,
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:22.100
  • BUT YOUR COMMITMENT DOES NOT.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:26.210
  • HEALTH IS ALSO SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:29.130
  • YOU DON'T NEED TO TAKE FOR
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:30.170
  • GRANTED.
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:33.030
  • HEALTH IS SOMETHING THAT YOU
  • 00:12:33.030 --> 00:12:34.220
  • OWE IT TO THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:35.280
  • COUNTING ON YOU TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:38.030
  • OF YOURSELF ENOUGH THAT YOU
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:39.180
  • CAN TAKE CARE OF THEM.
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:43.200
  • THAT MEANS THAT IF YOU NEED
  • 00:12:43.200 --> 00:12:44.160
  • TO GET IN BETTER SHAPE SO THAT
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:45.240
  • YOU CAN SERVE YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:12:45.240 --> 00:12:46.280
  • BETTER, DO IT.
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:50.030
  • IF YOU NEED TO GO FIND OUT
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:51.240
  • FROM A DOCTOR WHAT'S WRONG
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:52.260
  • WITH YOU SO THAT YOU CAN LIVE
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:54.020
  • LONGER, DO IT.
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:56.250
  • WHY?
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:58.010
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE IN A PARTNERSHIP
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:12:59.210
  • AND THAT PARTNERSHIP IS
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:00.250
  • PRODUCING A PRODUCT THAT NEEDS
  • 00:13:00.250 --> 00:13:02.160
  • YOU INTIMATELY INVOLVED
  • 00:13:02.160 --> 00:13:04.140
  • FOR THE DURATION.
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:08.050
  • "IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH,
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:11.030
  • IN PLENTY AND IN WANT."
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:15.100
  • THERE'S A BIBLICAL DEFINITION
  • 00:13:15.100 --> 00:13:16.130
  • OF "PLENTY."
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:18.160
  • THE ABUNDANCE THAT THE WORD
  • 00:13:18.160 --> 00:13:19.230
  • OF GOD PROMISES IS ENOUGH
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.190
  • TO MEET YOUR NEEDS.
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:23.000
  • MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY
  • 00:13:23.000 --> 00:13:24.100
  • ALL OF MY NEEDS.
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:27.020
  • THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD;
  • 00:13:27.020 --> 00:13:28.050
  • I SHALL NOT WANT.
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:31.120
  • THE BIBLICAL DEFINITION OF
  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:32.100
  • "PLENTY" IS "ENOUGH
  • 00:13:32.100 --> 00:13:33.150
  • TO MEET YOUR NEEDS
  • 00:13:33.150 --> 00:13:34.210
  • AND SOME LEFT OVER TO GIVE."
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.280
  • AND HERE'S THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:38.000
  • "PLENTY" AND "WANT."
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:39.180
  • IF WHAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:41.030
  • RICHES IS NOT BOUGHT,
  • 00:13:41.030 --> 00:13:43.080
  • YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE PLENTY.
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:46.190
  • IF RELATIONSHIPS,
  • 00:13:46.190 --> 00:13:48.130
  • AND VALUE OF TIME TOGETHER,
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.190
  • AND THINGS THAT MONEY CANNOT
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.010
  • BUY,
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:52.200
  • ARE WHERE YOUR SOURCE OF
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:53.250
  • RICHES COME FROM,
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:55.040
  • THEN YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:56.220
  • MONEY AS IF IT IS SOMETHING
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:58.220
  • YOU NEED MORE OF,
  • 00:13:58.220 --> 00:14:01.230
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE GODLINESS
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:03.120
  • WITH CONTENTMENT,
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:04.160
  • WHICH ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE,
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.290
  • IS GREAT GAIN.
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:08.100
  • BUT IF EVERYTHING THAT YOU
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:09.170
  • VALUE IS MEASURED IN MONETARY
  • 00:14:09.170 --> 00:14:11.220
  • NUMBERS,
  • 00:14:11.220 --> 00:14:12.190
  • IF DOLLAR SIGNS ARE CONNECTED
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.060
  • TO IT,
  • 00:14:14.060 --> 00:14:14.260
  • IT DOESN'T HOW MUCH YOU HAVE,
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:16.240
  • YOU'LL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH.
  • 00:14:17.230 --> 00:14:20.230
  • I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:21.210
  • CONTENT WITH WHAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:23.010
  • FOR YEARS.
  • 00:14:23.010 --> 00:14:23.200
  • AND I KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:24.130
  • LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:25.130
  • WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO GET,
  • 00:14:25.130 --> 00:14:26.100
  • AND WHEN THEY GET IT,
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:26.280
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO WANT IT
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:27.210
  • BECAUSE SOMETHING ELSE HAS
  • 00:14:27.210 --> 00:14:28.180
  • COME OUT.
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:33.110
  • WHENEVER YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.110
  • IF YOU GET MARRIED FOR PLENTY
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:36.020
  • AND IN WANT,
  • 00:14:36.020 --> 00:14:37.010
  • THEN YOU RECOGNIZE THAT WHAT
  • 00:14:37.010 --> 00:14:38.140
  • YOU ARE DOING IS NOT
  • 00:14:38.140 --> 00:14:39.200
  • CONNECTING YOURSELF TO
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:40.260
  • MONETARY VALUE.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:41.290
  • BUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS
  • 00:14:41.290 --> 00:14:42.240
  • CONNECTING YOURSELF TO A RICH
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:44.130
  • INVESTMENT OF RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:49.190
  • AFTER "PLENTY AND WANT,"
  • 00:14:49.190 --> 00:14:51.130
  • WE COME TO "JOY AND SORROW."
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:54.230
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT JOY FIRST.
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:56.080
  • "JOY" IS NOT HAPPINESS.
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:59.100
  • "JOY" IS NOT AN EMOTION.
  • 00:14:59.260 --> 00:15:02.280
  • "JOY" IS THE EVIDENCE
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:04.250
  • OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:07.280
  • THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE SAYS:
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:09.020
  • IN HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:15:09.020 --> 00:15:10.080
  • IS THE FULLNESS OF JOY.
  • 00:15:11.210 --> 00:15:14.210
  • WHEN YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:15.250
  • IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.140
  • MAKE SURE THAT THE PRESENCE OF
  • 00:15:17.140 --> 00:15:18.260
  • GOD IS IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:20.230
  • HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:15:20.230 --> 00:15:21.230
  • IN UNITY.
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:24.070
  • HOW DO YOU WALK TOGETHER IN
  • 00:15:24.070 --> 00:15:25.090
  • UNITY?
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:25.250
  • WITH UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:28.010
  • HOW DO YOU DEVELOP
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:28.200
  • UNDERSTANDING?
  • 00:15:28.200 --> 00:15:29.270
  • ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:33.170
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:35.120
  • IF YOU GO TO WORK
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:36.100
  • IN YOUR BUSINESS,
  • 00:15:36.100 --> 00:15:37.070
  • YOU GO TO WORK ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.190
  • YOU SET OUT HOURS IN A DAY
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:40.100
  • THAT ARE GOING TO BE YOUR WORK
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:41.080
  • DAY.
  • 00:15:41.080 --> 00:15:41.260
  • YOU SET ASIDE TIME FOR MEETINGS.
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:44.010
  • YOU GO OVER THE BOOKS.
  • 00:15:44.010 --> 00:15:45.060
  • YOU REVIEW THE LAST SIX MONTHS.
  • 00:15:45.060 --> 00:15:46.260
  • YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT
  • 00:15:46.260 --> 00:15:47.250
  • TWELVE MONTHS.
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:48.230
  • YOU MAKE PLANS AND GOALS
  • 00:15:48.230 --> 00:15:50.160
  • AND THINGS SO THAT,
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:51.180
  • AS THE YEAR UNFOLDS,
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.010
  • YOU KNOW FIRST QUARTER,
  • 00:15:53.010 --> 00:15:54.050
  • SECOND QUARTER, THIRD QUARTER,
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:55.140
  • FOURTH QUARTER,
  • 00:15:55.140 --> 00:15:56.080
  • WHETHER YOU'RE EARNING
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.050
  • AND MEETING THE CRITERIA
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:58.140
  • OF SUCCESS OR FAILURE
  • 00:15:58.140 --> 00:15:59.290
  • IN YOUR SMALL BUSINESS.
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.080
  • WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:02.100
  • YOU NEED TO PUT THAT SAME
  • 00:16:02.100 --> 00:16:03.150
  • AMOUNT OF EFFORT AND PURPOSE
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:05.000
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:07.110
  • SET ASIDE HOURS OF THE DAY
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:09.080
  • IN WHICH, ON PURPOSE,
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:10.180
  • YOU'RE GOING TO INVEST
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:11.090
  • YOURSELF IN THIS PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:14.160

  • AS A BOARD MEETING,
  • 00:16:16.110 --> 00:16:17.080
  • BUT IT NEEDS TO LOOK LIKE
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:18.000
  • A DATE WITH DINNER
  • 00:16:18.280 --> 00:16:21.280
  • AND MAYBE A MOVIE,
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:24.090
  • AND YOU PAY.
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:25.220

  • LIFE IS FOR FULL OF SORROW.

  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:33.180
  • YOU'LL GO THROUGH THE SORROW
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:34.130
  • OF LOSS.
  • 00:17:34.130 --> 00:17:36.100

  • WHEN YOUR PARTNER IS IN SORROW.
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:47.160
  • DON'T PILE IT ON;
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:49.230
  • PULL THEM OUT.
  • 00:17:50.020 --> 00:17:53.020

  • 00:22:10.070 --> 00:22:10.230
  • WELL WHY ARE YOU DONE WITH IT?
  • 00:22:10.230 --> 00:22:12.090
  • AND THEN WE SAY,
  • 00:22:12.090 --> 00:22:12.270
  • IT STARTED IN '81.
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:15.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:16.210
  • WHEN IT COULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:22:16.210 --> 00:22:19.090
  • SOLVED IN '81.
  • 00:22:22.040 --> 00:22:25.040
  • YOU'RE IN A SMALL BUSINESS
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:28.130
  • AND IN THIS BUSINESS,
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:29.090
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO SUCCEED,
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:30.120
  • THE BIBLE SAYS: YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:31.170
  • FORSAKE ALL OTHERS.
  • 00:22:32.270 --> 00:22:35.270
  • AND THERE'S CERTAIN THINGS
  • 00:22:35.270 --> 00:22:37.020
  • THAT ARE ON THAT LIST OF
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:38.030
  • FORSAKING ALL OTHERS THAT ARE
  • 00:22:38.030 --> 00:22:39.040
  • PRETTY EASY.
  • 00:22:39.040 --> 00:22:41.040
  • FORSAKE ALL OTHER
  • 00:22:41.040 --> 00:22:41.260
  • RELATIONSHIPS WITH ALL OTHER
  • 00:22:41.260 --> 00:22:43.190
  • INDIVIDUALS OF THE OPPOSITE
  • 00:22:43.190 --> 00:22:44.280
  • SEX.
  • 00:22:44.280 --> 00:22:45.130
  • FORSAKE ALL OTHER FEMALES.
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:47.070
  • FOR SAKE ALL OTHER MALES.
  • 00:22:47.070 --> 00:22:48.120
  • THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING.
  • 00:22:50.170 --> 00:22:53.170
  • BUT IT ALSO MEANS FORSAKING
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:54.270
  • ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:56.050
  • WOULD IN ANY WAY BECOME
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:57.160
  • A PRIORITY ABOVE THAT
  • 00:22:57.160 --> 00:22:59.090
  • PARTNERSHIP.
  • 00:23:01.170 --> 00:23:04.170
  • BECAUSE UNTIL YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:23:04.170 --> 00:23:07.020
  • YOU'RE NOT FULLY INVESTED.
  • 00:23:10.180 --> 00:23:13.180
  • I BELIEVE THAT IF WE PAID AS
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:14.240
  • MUCH ATTENTION TO OUR FAMILY
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:16.280
  • BUSINESS AS WE DO OUR EVERYDAY
  • 00:23:16.290 --> 00:23:19.290
  • BUSINESS,
  • 00:23:19.290 --> 00:23:22.000
  • WE WOULD SEE A MUCH GREATER
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:23.250
  • RETURN ON INVESTMENT IN OUR
  • 00:23:23.250 --> 00:23:25.100
  • CITY, IN OUR CHURCHES,
  • 00:23:25.100 --> 00:23:27.140
  • IN OUR SCHOOLS.
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:28.290
  • OUR EXPENSES WOULD DO DOWN
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:30.220
  • AND OUR REVENUES WOULD GO UP.
  • 00:23:30.220 --> 00:23:33.010
  • AND WE WOULD SEE A BRIGHTER
  • 00:23:33.010 --> 00:23:34.020
  • TOMORROW AND A GREATER
  • 00:23:34.020 --> 00:23:35.060
  • FORECAST FOR OUR FUTURE THAN
  • 00:23:35.060 --> 00:23:36.170
  • WE'VE EVER KNOWN BEFORE.

  • HOME,
  • 00:23:53.000 --> 00:23:55.040
