Is Your Business Right By God
Being a business owner comes with both privileges and responsibilities, not only to yourself, but to others as well as God. As a Christian I am sure you realize that it is God who gave you the business and the abilities that you have to run it. As a result,you will want to do all that you can to make certain that you are running your business as a Christian should.
As Christian business owners we should stand out from the crowd by offering top-notch service, stand firm on our promises, and go the extra mile for our clients. Doing so will not only make your business successful, but also make it a shining light and a witness in our world.
Too many business owners allow themselves to become involved in schemes or scams in the pursuit of the almighty dollar. By doing so they are not only giving their business and themselves a bad image and reputation, but they are also not being faithful to God by being dishonest and not honoring the commandments that He gives us all as Christians.
Just think about how much of a witness you can be as a business owner when you honor God, His laws and commitments by running your business in a moral and ethical fashion. Even if it is not the popular thing to do, it can pay off for you because it is the Christian way to conduct business. You will see that God will bless your efforts and your business will benefit.
Making your business right by God will only be a positive step to take as a business owner, and one that you will not soon regret.
You can also honor God in your business by treating your employees fairly. Many times business owners are hesitant to do nice things for their employees due to the fact that they are being selfish or prideful, wanting to take all the credit or profits for themselves. However, we know that God would have us to share our blessings with others. Not only that, but if your employee is one of the reasons that your business is successful you should give them credit and reward them for a job well done. After all, your business might not have been as successful without them.
Another thing that you can do to make certain that your business is right by God is to use your business to be a witness in your community for Christ. Always give Him the credit for your successes, always treat your employees and customers with Christian love and you will constantly see the benefits that will come to you for doing so.
