During a business counseling call, Dennis shared with me that he desired to sell his business to some key employees, and use a significant portion of the proceeds for ministry. When I heard Dennis’ generous heart I urged him not to sign any documents until after he met my friends at the National Christian Foundation.
Due to NCF’s charitable tax strategies, Dennis ultimately shifted tens of thousands of dollars to ministry instead of to taxes.
Jesus taught his disciples in Matthew 10:16, “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”
Sometimes we need the wisdom of others to be shrewd. If you’re considering selling your business, don’t sign anything until you’ve spoken with me or my friends at National Christian Foundation.
