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!

Spotlight on Pizza Ranch!

One business that doing wonderful things to honor God with their business is Pizza Ranch restaurant! They are a Midwest chain whose mission is “to glorify God by positively impacting the world.” One way they are doing just that is with the release of an original compilation CD titled “Living Hope.” It features some of the most celebrated names in Christian music, including Francesca Battistelli, Phil Wickham, Passion Band featuring Kristian Stanfill, Mark Schultz, Michael W. Smith, Bart Millard of MercyMe, and Matthew West. The songs, many of which are exclusive to the Pizza Ranch® record, echo a message of hope. You can purchase the CD here!

To further impact Christian artists and their families, the organization donated $120,000 on behalf of participating artists to non-profit Porter’s Call. Porter’s Call works to counsel, support and encourage recording artists and their families.

Tricia Goyer has written more than 35 books, including both novels that delight and entertain readers and nonfiction titles that offer encouragement and hope.
