Quote: “Success ultimately requires a steadfast resolve to faithfully serve and please God!” – John D. Beckett

“The rules are the rules…because…they are the rules” stated Eben Miller, professional investor and teacher of investor education seminars, as he addressed our class at the beginning of a two day Investing Foundations Course. Throughout the seminar, Eben not only taught us over and over this fundamental investing rule about rules, but he also taught us the actual rules AND the benefits achieved from following the rules. As I reflected upon Eben’s teachings, I learned that the reason for his very distinguished investment success wasn’t because he knew the rules, but rather because he truly learned how to embrace the rules and follow them with steadfast resolve, fully believing that they would ultimately bring him investment success. And guess what…they did!

One of my spiritual mentors in the Kingdom of God has taught me that “wisdom is the ability to discern difference.” Reflecting upon that wisdom principle even further, I understand that success is simply the derived benefit or result of applied wisdom principles. Since Webster’s dictionary defines the word rule as “an established principle or mode of action”, we can determine that rules are a set of established wisdom principles designed for specific action and consequent results. Therefore, it makes sense that if we follow the rules, we can expect specific results and benefits.

When asked about the greatest commandment [rule] in the Kingdom of God, Jesus answered as recorded in Matthew 22:37-40, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment [rule]. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments [rules] hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Not only did the Lord teach these two fundamental rules of the Kingdom, He also demonstrated ultimate loving obedience to them at the Cross of Calvary – vertically loving God with His whole being and horizontally loving His neighbor as Himself. Wow, obedience even unto death!

As a professional investor, Eben has learned to firmly believe, embrace, and love the rules of investing. Through his obedience, he enjoys protection from error as well as abundant prosperity. We too can enjoy an abundant life when we choose to love and obey the fundamental rules of the Kingdom of God. The Lord Himself, King of kings [Ruler of rulers], affirms the fruit of obedience in Isaiah 1:19 stating, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” With a spirit of generosity and commitment, learn to love and live the fundamental rules of love found in God’s Word. As you do, you will discover the abundant life of the Kingdom and enjoy the fruit of loving obedience!
