Business and God
“WIthout me you can do nothing.” - John 15:5

Many things have changed since 6000 years ago. When God first gave Adam the command to work. The very thought from childhood is ‘where do I want to work when I grow up’. The thought from every adult is ‘what do i need to do to survive’. Satan has surely changed the temperature in this world, from a family and community based life to a work and career based life, where family, friends, and God are compromised to reach the desired goals. Perhaps the toughest of all is the College life, that requires students to spend massive amounts of hours studying leaving little time for much else, including exercise, building healthy ...view middle of the document...

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Timothy 6:6-10)

Is your business thriving? Is your bank account full? Are you financially prospering? Better questions to ask should be...Is your relationship with your family tight, Is your devotional and spiritual life thriving? Are you receiving a daily portion of spiritual food? Many pastors in christianity preach the gospel that you can be rich and happy financially and all you have to do with pray a prayer and give offering and you will be rich too. Neglecting the true gospel of Jesus Christ and the fact that it is harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven then a camel into the eye of a needle. “WIthout me,” says Christ, “you can do nothing.” For all the fathers and men in the business world trying to provide for their families and live a better life, this provision should be providing their families the best opportunity for healthy spiritual lives. “As from such a home the father goes forth to his daily duties, it is with a spirit softened and subdued by converse with God. He is a Christian, not only in his profession, but in trade, in all his business relations. He does his work with fidelity, knowing that the eye of God is upon him. In the church his voice is not silent. He has words of gratitude and encouragement to utter; for he is a growing

Christian, with a fresh experience every day.” “God is not glorified when influential men make themselves mere businessmen, ignoring their eternal interests, that are so much more enduring, so much more noble and elevated, than the temporal.” “There are some who are seldom found in the house of worship. They make one excuse, then another, and still another, for their absence; but the real reason is that their hearts are not religiously inclined.” “They have no living connection with [God]; they are purely businessmen. Pg. 424-425 Yet the push in the business world is to make yourself sound as good as possible. The more vanity (disguised as confidence) you display, the better your chances of more money and more power. Not knowing that “The more responsible the position they occupy, the more fierce will be Satan’s attacks; for he knows that if he can move them to take an objectionable course, others will follow their example. But those who are continually learning in the school of Christ will be able to pursue the even [course] of their way, and Satan’s efforts to throw them off their balance will be signally defeated.” - Pg. 426 Therefore the higher you seem to rise, the more satan will attack you, which means the more you will need God. But how often is it that the higher we rise, the less we feel in need of God. “Without me,” says Christ, “you can do nothing.”

As you can see it is in today’s business that the devil does some of his best work “Satan makes every effort to lead people away from God; and he is...
