Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Biblical Business Principles – Last time we focused on Problems and Prayer. How is your business prayer process?

This week we will focus on People Problems. Many business people enjoy the work of producing the product or service much more than dealing with the people problems. Yet people are what enables a sole practitioner to become a company. How are your people problems?

Do you want good people? Proverbs 3 gives us some good advice.

My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart, for they will give you a long and satisfying life. Proverbs 3:1-2 NLT Our Father God’s commands have wonderful promises? Are you “standing on the promise of God”?

We all want loyal employees, customers, and all others we interface with in business! Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace; write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will gain a good reputation. Proverbs 3:3-4 NLT Being consistently and constantly loyal and kind to your people will result in favor with your people. How are you doing in being loyal and kind?

Bit of Wisdom
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
