"What are you going to say when God asks you to give account to Him about what you did with your business?"
This question posed by a business mentor to a friend of mine was a serious wake-up call to him and his partner. As a committed Christian he knew that he would give account for his life, but this question was a little unsettling simply because he had never thought of this in terms of owning his business.
Many Christians have not stopped to consider what it takes to build a business to the glory of God. They may have a piece or two of the puzzle, but often have not stepped back to look beyond economics, ethics, or evangelism.
Making a profit is seen as morally good and honorable in the Bible, but God had a lot more in mind for business than making money. Six essential elements define a business that glorifies God. (Click Here to Download the PDF) They include:
- an economic element
- a moral element
- a relational element
- an evangelistic element
- a social element
- a cultural element
