After a successful business venture, are you careful to keep your head on straight?

A king had won a great victory and was told, "You have indeed defeated Edom, and your heart has become proud" (2 Kings 14:10 NASB).

Often the seeds of a future defeat are sown immediately after our biggest business success. We may forsake listening to counsel or short-circuit sound planning practices when we believe that everything we touch will turn to gold. When star athletes read favorable press clippings too much, they may lose the next game. Practice effective planning and listen to counsel long term to avoid those elephant traps.

A king had won a great victory and was told, "You have indeed defeated Edom, and your heart has become proud" (2 Kings 14:10 NASB).
