68. Public Policy, Stewardship, and the Kingdom of God, with Breon Wells, President of the Daniel Initiative
What in the world does the Kingdom of God have to do with public policy? What does the Kingdom of God have to do with shaping governments and institutions? And how does stewardship fit into all that?
That’s what I’m be talking about in this episode with Breon Wells of the Daniel Initiative, a government relations firm that helps underrepresented and underserved populations promote positive change.
THIS EPISODE'S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
- Breon Wells is the President and Founder of The Daniel Initiative and author of The K-Gene: Principles for Attaining Your Destiny.
- Breon Wells worked in Washington, D.C., for eight years as a Congressional aide.
- The Daniel Initiative to help people connect with the mandate they have outside the four walls of the church.
- Breon makes the case for eliminating the divide between secular and sacred.
- Daniel in the Old Testament lived without a sacred/secular divide.
- We too often elevate the “spiritual stuff” we do at church without valuing what people do in the rest of their lives.
- Breon Wells sees his work as prophetic. The prophet’s job is not to manipulate or control the people, but simply to speak the truth of God.
- When Breon talks about “Kingdom” he is in part talking about stewardship. As sons and daughters of God, the King, we have a calling to be good stewards of all that has been entrusted to us.
- The one quality we need to do God’s Kingdom work is surrender. Total surrender.
