Biblical Business Brief – Daily Focus — August 29, 2017

Biblical Business Brief – Daily Focus

Biblical Business Brief, a weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Last week we focused on Who Leads You?  Are you trusting God or yourself?  To what degree? 50/50? 80/20? 100/0?

This week we will focusing on Daily Focus.  In your business life, do you see good all around you, or do you see nothing but evil?  Is the glass half full or half empty?

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23 NLT

Our hearts become filters through which we perceive goodness or evil. The pure (those with Christ in control) learn to see goodness and purity even in this evil world. Corrupt and unbelieving people find evil in everything because their evil hearts taint even the good they see and hear. Will what you choose to fill your mind with affect the way you think and act?

Turn your thoughts to God and his Word, and you will discover more and more goodness, even in this evil world. A mind filled with good has little room for what is evil.  Are you seeing goodness in your daily business life?

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8 NLT

This is a great verse for Daily Focus.  I encourage you to memorize it in your favorite translation, and quote it to yourself daily.     

Bit of Wisdom

Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. Proverbs 4:24-27

Biblical Business Brief – Who Leads You? —

Biblical Business Brief – Who Leads You?

Biblical Business Brief, a weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Last week we focused on Planning.  Are your plans coming to fruition and leading you where you need to go in your business?

This week we will focusing on Who Leads You?  Are you the boss, or do you work for others and have a human boss?  As a Christian we all have a boss (leader) we report to, Our Lord.

As leaders, we must trust God more than ourselves. In the daily rush of business, it is easy to trust in ourselves rather than trusting in the Lord.

Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Psalm 37:3 NLT 

How do you check yourself to discern when your trusting yourself more than God?

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4 NLT

Does this mean He will give me what I want, or is it that He will plant His desires in my heart?

Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you. Psalm 37:5 NLT

How do you commit your business issues to the Lord?  How much time are you investing in prayer?

He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:6 NLT

Have you experienced God illuminating your business (and you) when you’re trusting, delighting, and committing everything to Him?

Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Psalm 37:7 NLT

How often do you invest time in simply sitting in the Lord’s presence?  Have you discovered this investment yields dividends?  Does the amount you’re fretting correspond to the amount of time you’re investing in His presence?

Bit of Wisdom

Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. Psalm 37:1-2 NLT
