In his book, Good to Great, Jim Collins writes about what makes a company great, as opposed to good. Out of the thousands of major companies, only 11 stood out as being truly great in all categories. What was it that made them great, though?

Jim Collins’ extensive conclusion was that those companies put importance first on “who” rather than the “what” and once they became focused on the “who” the “what” came more naturally and happened actually better.

But what Jim Collins failed to mention was the most important piece of what really turns something from good to great… The favor of God.

The only way anything goes from good to great is by the good hand of the Lord being upon it, by the grace and favor of God.

Listen here for WHY we are in absolute need of God’s favor, and how he has shown it to us ABUNDANTLY in Jesus.
