"Know why your business matters." - Bob Briner, The Management Methods of Jesus
If you are in business, you need to know why your business matters.
In fact, you need to know why your business matters to God. You need to see how your business fits into God's plan.
Think back. Let your mind run free to the time when you imagined going into business for yourself and before you started your business. Think about the purpose and intent for your business. Jot down those ideas and memories. Record them for yourself.
Take a good look at what you have written down.
Look at the kingdom potential of your business. How could your business expand or enhance the kingdom of God? Did God inspire you to start your business? How does God and His Word fit into your business plans?
Here are some ways to revisit your business:
- Go to God's Word. See what God has to say.
- Pray to God. Hear from God on the matter of business.
- Seek godly counsel. Talk with your pastor. Join a Christian business roundtable or network.
