A Living Faith


Donnie Smith is the CEO of Tyson Foods. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, he was asked if his faith influenced his management decisions. He replied:

I don't think you can say, "I do all my church stuff on Sunday between nine and noon, and the rest of the time I am either out for myself or running my business."

My faith influences how I think, what I do, what I say. There are a lot of great biblical principles that are fundamental to operating a good business. Being fair and telling the truth are biblical principles.

In a very concise way, Donnie Smith summarizes the message of TheHighCalling.org. We want people to go beyond an intellectual understanding of their faith. Knowing that our faith influences everyday living is one thing; consciously applying that faith is another.
