Faith or Foolishness 
by Rick Boxx
November 27, 2009

Faith and stupidity can look similar. Faith to one person seems like foolishness to another.

When I began ministering to business leaders it seemed crazy to many. I had the choice of running a bank or starting a biblically-based consulting practice with no salary or guarantee of success.

After prayer, poring over God's Word, and God's nudge through his Holy Spirit, I stepped out in faith and chose the riskier of the two.

Romans 8:5 teaches, "Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires."

Although we need to be careful to test the Spirit's leading, when it is affirmed, faith requires stepping out courageously.
