The Bible & GaryVee: 6 Verses Gary Preaches Without Even Knowing It

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode, James shares 6 verses in Proverbs that are eerily similar to what Gary Vaynerchuk preaches.

Hello and welcome back to another solo episode of BEDB growth. My name is James Carbury. I'm one of the hosts of BEDB growth and if you are just tuning in, this is your first solo episode. We've been doing these for the last couple of months. I dedicate the episodes on the weekends to just ways that I'm growing personally how we're growing in our business. So it's not an interview, it's just me and articulating what's going on in our world right now and and how I'm personally growing how the business is growing. So today's episode will not be for everyone by any stretch of the imagination, because I'm a man of faith and I'm a Christian and and when I was on my way back from my most recent BEDB growth dinner, I was reading through proverbs, a book in the Bible, Proverbs Twenty one, and as I was reading through it I just thought, oh my gosh, this is insane.

How much of the Bible is is correlated to the overarching themes that Gary v Preaches all the time, and so I thought, oh my gosh, like the Bible's said this all along, and that's why I think I have such a resonance with Gary's message because ultimately a lot of what he's saying is backed up by by scripture. So I know that there there are some folks listening to this that that are Christians. I know most people listening to this. I've definitely heard of Gary V if this is not something that you're interested in hearing at all, you could just shut off this episode now. But if you're interested in hearing the six verses in proverbs twenty one that Gary is preaching without even knowing that he's preaching them, then then stay tuned in because that's what we're going to be talking about today. So the first verse that I came across in proverbs twenty one is proverbs twenty one two, and it...

...says every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart. And as soon as I read that I thought about Gary. When Gary Talks about your intent is everything. If you know he's he's okay with coming. You know, Gary's okay with coming across the way that he comes across to some people he can be he can come across is very cocky, very arrogant, but but he knows that his intent is ultimately good, and when I read that I thought him the Lord ways our heart. I just thought there was there's a really cool correlation there. The second verse, Proverbs Three, says to do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. And as I as I as I thought about that, I you know, to do righteousness and justice is more acceptable than sacrifice.

That part to do, I think, speaks to Gary's Gary's passion for taking action. Don't don't talk about it, actually do take action. And so in verse three, where it says to do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice, just made me think that, man, when we when we actually take action and and and do things, it's it's much more pleasing to God than than just talking about it or maybe making, you know, sacrifices in the name of something that I don't know. It's not. It's just not as powerful as as taking that action. This third one, proverbs twenty one six. It says the getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a snare of death. And that made me think of when Gary Talks about and a build the biggest building in town...

...by actually building it, not by tearing everyone else's building down. He also talks a lot about doing the right thing is always the right thing. So again going back to that verse, you know, the getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a snare of death. I just think, man, that's that's exactly what Gary talks about all the time. Like when you're when you're not, when you're not doing the right thing and you're trying to build your own empire by tearing everyone else down, by lying, by deceit, by manipulation. It's never going to end up in your favor in the in the long game, obviously here in the Bible of the context of like the long, long game, right like eternity. It's not going to work out for you. But Gary's talking about even even here on earth. You know it's it's not the right way to do it. This fourth one, proverbs twenty one, twenty one. It says whoever pursues righteousness...

...and kindness will find life, righteousness and honor. Gary's been on a big kick lately about how kindness is everything, kindness wins, and so to read this, whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life. Righteousness and honor just make so much sense. This fifth verse that correlates to a lot of what Gary Talks about, proverbs twenty one, twenty five. The desire of the sluggard kills him, for his hands refuse to Labor. You don't have to you don't have to think very long about this one. Obviously Gary is a massive, massive advocate for not being lazy, for working hard, putting in the work day after day after day, and I think this very verse sums that up in a very real way. So the desire of the sluggard kills...

...him for his hands refused to labor. If we're not willing to work, if we're not willing to do the hard things and put in the work necessary to achieve the goals that we want to achieve, we're not going to get there. It takes work. This last one, the sixth verse that I'm going to talk about, is proverbs twenty one, twenty six, and it says all day long he craves and craves, but the righteous gives and does not hold back. Gary wrote an entire book about this. Right, you know, Jab Jab Jab, right hook. You're always you're always giving. Give, give, give, give, give, always add value without the expectation of getting anything in return. So this verse saying All Day Long He craves and craves, but the righteous gives and does not hold back, I think, I think is a beautiful representation of of what you know, the same thing that Gary is talking about all the time. So this was really...

...interesting to me as I was reading through proverbs. I just thought, man, it was. It was affirmation to me of why Gary's message resonates with me so strong so strongly because ultimately, you know, I've read a lot of what he's teaching long before I ever heard of Gary v Right, like I became a Christian when I was fifteen years old and and have you know, I try to read the Bible as often as I can. You know, some some months I'm better at it than others. I definitely struggle with it, with being consistent there, but as I've been trying to get more consistent with it, just realizing, like man, the the reason, you know, one of the reasons I think I resonate so much is because a lot of what Gary says came straight from the Bible, and the Bible obviously said it first. So I hope this episode was helpful. I hope it hope for the Christians listening, you know, I hope it was a little bit of affirmation and even if you're not a Christian listening, hope, hope it brought value to you. Obviously I'm I'm a I'm a huge proponent of...

...the Bible and in the wisdom that's in it and also huge proponent of what Gary's preaching, because I think there's just so much truth in it, as indicated by what we just talked about today.
