Are you self-made?
This has been declared the age of the entrepreneur. A significant evolution is underway in patterns of work. Lifelong careers in a major industrial company or in any particular field or skill are increasingly rare, while a record number of people are starting their own businesses. Economists have even predicted that the average individual may change his or her job over seven times during a working career. As a result of these developments, there can be a temptation to feel insecure about one's identity, work, and supply.
Having started and maintained my own independent consulting business, I've continually had to deal with the challenges of not having the security associated with a regular paycheck or benefits like a paid vacation. Not too long ago, entrepreneurs were labeled "self-made" business people. Now, in my prayers, I've taken that term to heart and rejected the theory that man could ever actually be "self-made." I'm learning of my inevitable dependence on God—not myself—for security for me and my family.
