CBMC Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.
Biblical Business Principle
Last week we focused on Working with Purpose – Balancing Beauty and Function. How well do you reflect God as you seek to balance beauty and function?
This week we will review the principles we have focused on in the series Working with Purpose.
We glorify God through a business by operating the business in a manner consistent with Biblical Business Principles which include:
• Recognize God as the true owner
• Make a profit so the business can continue
• Provide opportunities for people to have meaningful work
• Pay employees just compensation
• Provide safe working conditions
• Honor employees families
• Safeguard God’s creation
• Comply with all applicable laws
• Be honest with all
• Support God’s Kingdom on Earth
• Honor peoples’ religious freedom including keeping the Sabbath and day of rest
• Reflect God’s intended balance of beauty and function
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28 NLT Are you experiencing God causing things to work together for good in your business as you work in accordance with His purposes?
Suggestion: Print out this email and invest a few minutes reviewing these Working With Purpose principles. Rate how you’re doing in a 1 – 10 scale. Then invest some time in prayer asking God for His rating.
Bit of Wisdom
If you keep yourself pure, you will be a utensil God can use for his purpose. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21 NLT
