      Thanks!

    Glad I noticed this article in my feed. Interesting and helpful for me in 2 ways. First, I’m frequently susceptible to the pitfalls of the business sin of “lust” as described above, so it’s a good reminder to make sure I devote time to assessing my personal vision clarity and progress. Second, I’ve been trying to connect my faith to my business life lately, starting with daily blog posts on LinkedIn. So, this 7 Deadly Sins of business approach is right up my alley. Thanks! Looking forward to more.

    Excellent post, John. This strikes well at the principle that how every aspect of our business performance either honors God or does not, and no amount of philanthropy or good work negates the accountability to run an excellent enterprise. Balanced scorecard stuff on steroids. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Mike. I hope you like the rest of the series.
