You need to go make yourself an expert that can be trusted.

“At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent.” -Daniel 6:4

Daniel was neither corrupt nor negligent.

Sometimes people are really honest with everyone, but you still wouldn’t trust them with a project, because they just couldn’t. Sometimes people are ready for any project, but you don’t want to give it to them because they aren’t transparent. In the church, we need the best of both traits.

We need people that are neither corrupt nor negligent.

So go, become an honest expert in the gospel and whatever kind of tent you like to make. You’ll never have to worry about getting in trouble again.

And you’ll bring Jesus back sooner.

Resource note:

If you’re interested in business, development, and design, NovoEd is a great website to use to increase your non-negligence in those sorts of tent-making endeavors. They didn’t give me anything to say that. (I should probably become less negligent about monetizing my blog.)
