Well described, thanks.

But in asking who is doing the will of the Father, one of the things which Christ struggled with was how the Jewish leaders of that time were stuck on their own traditions, and in doing so they failed to recognize Jesus.

The Father, through Jesus, wants all of His followers to set aside the traditions, however well intentioned, but which steer the believer away from knowing and understanding the message which Jesus brought, and which the Bible teaches. As we discover His will in our study we need to step away from misleading traditions. The churches today have that problem just as the Jews did in Christ's day. Are we really following the will of the Father? That's an individual responsibility for each of us.

Indeed there is a difference between what humankind thinks of as "intelligence," "wisdom," and "superior knowledge," and what the Bible and God considers those things to be. The choice to love and follow God places a person in the place of being aided by God, whether or not you have any worldly markers of intelligence.

Ironically, our mental and intellectual abilities come from the same source as the rain! Thus the most intelligent, or educated atheist, in human terms, owes that gift to the God they choose to disbelieve.

Matthew 5:45

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

I've watched many of those videos, and your advice leaves them in the dust! Studying what is selling can only take you part of the distance. By creating something you would be interested in, you win, both in the time spent, and in the event of selling something.

It's often been said that getting success comes by telling a story. The creative effort you like for yourself, tells the best story. That other advice is somewhat pointless, even though it touches a lot of truths and good ideas. Good ideas are sitting in front of us by the millions, but they aren't an automatic success just because they were "good!"
