Forums Focus: Biblical Business Principles – Honoring God
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 week we focused on Values. Do your values replicate God’s values? Do you have a written Values Statement for your business?

This week we will focus on Honoring God. Does your company expressly state publically your intention to Honor God through your business?

“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created.” Revelations 4:11 NLT We all know this is true, but why state it publically?

In moving to Bradenton FL we needed to purchase insurance. After getting several quotes I chose to go with a local company, Bradenton Insurance. Sometime after purchasing the insurance I went to their website where I saw that they state their mission is “To honor God by providing the best insurance advice and protection, through committed professionals maintaining caring relationships and excellent service.” I found this to be the way the company did business. They state their mission for all to see – then they act accordingly.

There are other companies that publically state their intention to Honor God, including Tyson’s, Hobby Lobby, Interstate Batteries, ServiceMaster which includes Merry Maids and Terminix. In Baltimore, Kelly & Associates even has it prominently posted in their lobby.

Rather, the LORD’s delight is in those who honor him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love. Psalm 147:11 NLT

Why post “to honor God” publically? Next week we will dig deeper into this question.

Bit of Wisdom
Give honor to the LORD for the glory of his name. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. Psalm 29:2 NLT
