Ok, Jesus wasn’t a CEO or President of a company, but he was a leader, a teacher, and the greatest example of servant leadership that we have.My blogs will be a look at how Jesus might have a run a business if he were in the world today. Each week I will cover a topic related to managing a successful business and provide you with tips on how Jesus and the Bible can give guidance on those topics.
Comparing the Word to the World
The Bible should be our resource for all that we do, but we seem to neatly separate it from our work life. Which is too bad, since it is full of principles we should be running a business with.In my blogs I will highlight a particular topic by showing you and explaining what the Bible says about it, and comparing that to what the world says about it. I will explore how the good things in the Bible can be taken to extremes and be damaging to the success of our business, or be used the way God intended them to and help us to flourish.
God Wants You to Prosper
We know God wants good for us (and our business), he made over 3000 promises in the Bible, but we must remember that with those promises come responsibility and expectations.God often says "you will have B, if you willdo A".We tend to see the "you will have B" and then forget we have to do A.God is loving and merciful and generous yes, but he also understands the benefits of a strong work ethic.In fact, in Genesis 1 where God creates the heavens and the earth, the word "good" is used to describe the results 6 times, indicating that there is inherent good in the results of labor.Since it's the beginning of God's book, I figure it should be the beginning of my blog.My first topic will be on work ethic and will be posted next Friday, please come back and read it!
