Business, Life and the Bible

I believe the Bible is the most unique book in all of recorded history. In fact, it is not a book at all but rather a collection of letters, scrolls, or fragments thereof. I believe it is God’s written revelation to mankind of Himself. Protected by God through the centuries since the words were first written down. And that it provides all the people of the world regardless of race, culture, geographic location with specific instruction(s) about every area of life. Such as our relationship with God or lack of such a relationship; our relationship with people whether that is family, co-workers, neighbors, customers, employees, or bosses. The Bible gives us hope and help and wise is the person who becomes a dedicated student of the Bible.

Once the words of the Bible penetrate the heart and the reader comes into relationship with the God of the Bible by following the Bibles instruction on how to enter into this relationship the Bible takes on greater significance. It becomes life’s instruction book, the greatest “how-to” manual every compiled. The words of the Bible are powerful, they can be trusted, and they can be used every day to live your life and to guide business owners in operating their businesses.

3 John:2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as they soul prospereth.” Friends if there ever was a time that we need our souls to prosper, our health to prosper, our businesses to prosper it is now.

So my challenge to you is to make a decision to dig in to God’s word, the Bible. You say it is too complicated, too hard to understand or it is outdated. Think again. Why not try a new approach utilizing a prayer in the Bible before you undertake reading and studying the Bible. Here it is: “Deal bountifully with thy servant that I may live and keep they word. Open now mine eyes that I may behold wonderous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:17) And so it is that you can behold wonderous things, extraordinary things when you diligently read and study the Bible. Pray this prayer before each time you begin and see what happens.
