How can I make money and Love God?
Over the past few weeks my LinkedIn and Facebook inbox has been loaded with a few questions from aspiring Entrepreneurs on how they can make money online and Love God at the same time. They heard from other people who going into Entrepreneurship means you are selfish and you are only looking to make money off of people and that they should not do that. (Seriously?).. With so much floating around and me Loving the Lord like I do, I decided to start a Youversion Business study and I wanted to share some of it with you.
When you love God with all your heart and you use your God-given talents for his glory what are you feeling bad about. Many new Entrepreneurs get confused or would rather not rock the boat when it comes to expressing their faith though their Business. I am not going to fall prey to people who do not believe what I believe, and attempt to make us feel bad about going into Business for ourselves so that we can help countless others.
In my research I stumbled on a Youversion study plan by Francis Kong, a speaker, teacher, leader and Coach. I had never heard of him before so I did some research on him via his website. He is a really great Christian Business Leader and I wanted to share some of his Youversion study plan with you. Here is why you should not feel guilty when wanting to make money and Love God.
- God has given you talents that you need to use. It would be selfish to keep them to yourself.
- Work is sacred and God ordained it from the beginning.
- When you show excellence and righteousness in your field, you become a testimony.
Question: Do you think its easy to be a Religious/Christian Entrepreneur in Business?
