ENUMCLAW, Wash., Mar. 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- An executive with a multi-national corporation shares practical principles of wisdom that apply in everyday situations. Keith Zimmerman, a Texas businessman, has written "Seeing Eye to Eye With God," a guide on how to get and apply wisdom. He says wisdom is not just the short proverbial phrases we think of as wise sayings. Zimmerman says wisdom can be acquired. "God is the One who is all wise, but remarkably He desires to share His wisdom with those who desire it."
Zimmerman's definition of wisdom is "seeing life through God's eyes," which he defines as a variation of the Golden Rule or "doing unto others as God would do unto them."
Zimmerman presents key points for accessing God's wisdom in life's situations. He begins with a discussion of the healthy fear of God as a prerequisite to wisdom. The book is liberally sprinkled with examples from biblical characters, his business career, the "School of Hard Knocks," and his marriage and family life. Zimmerman shares the lessons he learned from the failure of four business ventures before the age of 32, as well as from his subsequent success in business.
Part business manual that employs biblical principles, part devotional that will encourage a closer walk with God, part confessional that shares lessons hard won, "Seeing Eye to Eye With God" shares truths from the Word of God that will be helpful in any walk of life. Each chapter begins with a wise saying, such as, "Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence" (Ray Kroc). He says God will provide direction, but cautions against using circumstances as a reliable indicator of God's direction saying, "Sometimes a closed door just means I have to knock a little harder."
Zimmerman advocates using the Bible as a "macroscope" not a microscope, where one sees life through God's eyes. He says, "Develop a solid understanding of God's general themes, intentions, expectations, and then jump into the game of life." Recounting his son's death by drowning, Zimmerman says wisdom takes us beyond our human capabilities and gives strength for troubled times. He says he has learned to trust God's judgment as to what is right.
Keith Zimmerman is married with three grown children and lives in Ponder, Texas.
