3 Ways to Honor God with Your Business

by | Jul 15, 2015 | Woman

I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear that a business is owned by Christians and they conduct all aspects of their business as such, I love to support the business whenever and however I can. What are some Christian businesses (local or large companies) you like to support? Let me know in the comments below. Then keep reading for tips on how to honor God with your business; even if you don’t own or run a business, these are great tips if you have a 9–5 job.

1) It’s not just about money.

Sure, you have to make money to keep your doors open—but you should view every person who walks through your doors as a ministry opportunity. You never know what relationships will form between you and your customers (or even other business associates) and how God will use that to glorify his kingdom.

2) Integrity is king.

Merriam-Webster defines integrity as “firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values.” Whether it’s your taxes, shipping, customer service, or sales departments, every aspect of your company should do its best to conduct itself in a way that would make God say, “Well done.”

3) Pray without ceasing.

This might seem like an obvious one, but we’re prone to worry first and pray later, especially when it comes to our jobs. Even as I’m writing a book and coming up on my deadline, I tend to worry first and focus on that looming date, rather than giving it up to God to begin with. Remember, He has everything in His control when it comes to your business. Just pray about it!
