It’s amazing how often Jesus Christ spoke about money and the managing of finances in the Gospels. Many passages can be practically applied directly to our businesses today. Consider the parable of The Sower, from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 13, verses 1 -9 (New International Version):
“That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then, Jesus told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. And yet, other seed fell on good soil, producing a crop—a hundred, sixty, or thirty times than sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
From a secondary analogy’s sake, the seed that fell along the traveled path could speak of a person starting a business with a very shallow knowledge of what it takes to run and succeed in business. Many outside influences and forces quickly and easily devour this person. It takes much more than just a heart dream or desire to succeed in launching a viable business. There must first be some real know-how and solid research.
The seed on the rocky soil can speak of a person who attempts to start a business and tries to grow it too quickly without first having some anchoring roots in the ground. It doesn’t take long before they are overwhelmed when met with unexpected resistance, or unforeseen personal setbacks. Long-lasting businesses are rarely established overnight. An excellent strong tap-root builds the strength and drive for the grounding of more root-networks. They are growing something that will potentially last.
The seeds that fell among the thorns might speak of a person who starts a business in the wrong environment, whether that be the wrong location, the wrong team, the wrong timing of the idea, etc. Their business gasps, being choked out by an environment or market that is not favorable to their product.
Then there are those businessmen who start their business in rich, fertile soil. This soil has the right properties, readiness, and posturing of mind and lifestyle to succeed. Every seed planted in such soil has only one forecast. It will increase, profit, and multiply, securing a sure future harvest!
Jesus Christ is a trustworthy teacher. It is my persuasion that I should aim to develop the heart of a teacher. When it comes to instructing new, uninitiated (but interested) candidates as to how to take those first steps into our crypto world, it can be intimidating to them. Still, if they are fertile and good soil, they are worth the painstaking tutoring involved in this life-changing enterprise. All of us know family members or people that are stuck in jobs that engulf too much of their lives and precious time. We know that their job is a parasitic host on their personal lives. If they had some way of relieving the stress, or some way out of it all, they most likely would take it.
Imagine if we had the key to setting them free from their plight? What would we tell them, and would we have the heart of a teacher to guide them through baby steps, into their bright, liberated future?
In Jerimiah 29:11, God said, ” I will give you a future and a hope. ” We are sharing in God’s heart of love when we are instrumental in giving others a new and good financial future and hope.
I asked myself recently, “How would you begin to teach someone about the ins-and-outs of the digital asset business? What would be the first things they need to know to get started?”
I would not share these things with just anyone. I would only share them with someone I truly trust. My brother-in-law is such a person, and this is how I would approach it with him. He has a computer and knows how to use it, but he is not savvy when it comes to technical things.
First, I would send him the PDF file found the forum in Gail’s corner entitled: “Welcome to Compumatrix (Steps to getting started).” This document takes him to create his CDAP account, get verified, join the members’ forum, sign the needed disclosure forms, and set up a DEX account and a Discord chat room account.
Next, I would send him to the Compumatrix “how to channel” on youtube:
Then, I would have him open a Uphold.com or Coinbase.com account (whichever you prefer). I would encourage him to buy a small amount of BTC to get familiar with how that process works.
I then would have him send a small amount of BTC to his DEX account to buy a little BTS (He is going to need it for any trading they do there, he will need it for claiming funds from his CDAP.) Also, I would have him send at least the minimal amount of BTC to his newly opened CDAP, to activate his BTC address.
I would teach him about the different kinds of wallets (hot and cold storage). Then instruct him about cell phone wallet apps, online wallets, hardware wallets, and paper wallets. I would also familiarize him with the security measures that he should be taking on his computer/devices, to keep his cryptos as safe as possible.
I would then send him the file found in Gail’s corner entitled; ” How to earn points on the blog site.” This document will take him through joining the blog site and get him started there, earning some points.
Lastly, I would find out who his Regional Representative would be; introduce him to his RR, and let him know how to contact his RR.
Of course, there is so much more to learn and become acquainted with the vast scope of the Compumatrix ecosystem. Still, these simple beginner’s steps above will get them started in the right direction.
Looking back, I wish I could have had a mentor to patiently teach me these simple things that I had stated here when I was first starting. I am thankful for all the tools now available to us today, tools that will allow us to mentor someone special to us and lead them on to a successful future with Compumatrix! With a clear, concise, and well-thought-out introduction of a step-by-step playbook, we can swing open the windows to a promising harvest of unimaginable financial freedom for someone very dear to us!
