The Untested Title
By Rick Boxx
July 28, 2011
While writing my first book, “How to Prosper in Business…Without Sacrificing Integrity” I was praying for a title when I thought I received divine direction. I sought very little counsel, and charged ahead assuming it was God’s direction.
Months later, a friend told me “That title won’t work. You need to stop the presses. It’ll be a costly mistake.” I stubbornly refused.
He was right. Even though the content has been valuable for many, the title has hindered sales.
John taught in 1 John 4:1, “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
When you think you have a word from God, test it to scripture and through wise counsel.
