I use to be a very active AVON representative for over 5 years. I grew as a person because of the company and earned a little bit of money too. I don't regret joining AVON at all. But as I drew closer in my walk with God and more devoted to my AVON business, I realized that there was a major conflict of interest between the two. I often compared the things I did with AVON with the things I did (and didn't do) for God. AVON completely won by a landslide. There was something seriously wrong with that picture. That is why I had to slow down my business. In Exodus 20, God commands us to have "no other god" before him. In my case, AVON had became my god and I didn't even know it. I am not trying to bash AVON (I still buy it for myself and I made alot of friends), however this is an idol that I had to cast down.

MY TURNING POINT: (2005) I CALLED UP "SAFE HARBOR" DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER WITH THE INITIAL INTENTION OF SELLING AVON PRODUCTS TO THEIR CLIENTS. I OFFERED "FREE MAKEOVER'S" SO THAT I COULD PASS OUT MY BOOKS WHILE I WAS THERE. BUT ONCE I WAS THERE, I JUST COULD NOT PASS OUT MY BOOKS TO THEM. DOING THE "FREE MAKEOVER'S" WAS FAR GREATER OF A BLESSING TO ME THAN ANY DOLLAR THAT I WOULD HAVE EVER GAINED BY SELLING MY PRODUCT TO THEM.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
