Christian Principles of Integrity & Business: Part 2

Today we are going to look at how we determine what personal and professional pursuits to follow.   In all areas of our lives we should determine the gifts that God has given and use those gifts for His glory and purpose.   Do some self-examination and also ask the Lord to reveal to you how you have been uniquely gifted.   Once you have determined your gifts decide how best you can use those to glorify God.   God desires us to have a balance between rest and work and between our professional and personal lives.   So, use your gifts for God’s glory and keep your life balanced.

Key Points:

  • 1I’ve carefully searched the scriptures and confirmed the biblical accuracy of the principles. Wiser persons have already discovered similar principles and the list is surely longer than the one enclosed, but this list is born by the path I’ve traveled.
  • 2I will pursue a balanced life between my personal life and my business endeavors Psalm 127:2. Like Jesus, I will strive for balance mentally, physically, spiritually, and relationally Luke 2:52.
  • 3Time to work is balanced with time to rest Psalm 127:2 Ecclesiastes 3 and protracted fatigue is to be avoided.

Character reveals the depth of one’s relationship to the Lord and is a foundation for being blessed by the Lord. Much of business success is built on reputation, which is fine, but reputation should not be confused with character.
