Biblical Business

The Course

Do You have a Nagging Thought that Your Business could Be More?

You are not alone.  Businesses in the Bible play a far greater role in God’s plan than almost anyone has realized (see The Good Book on Business). God has a plan for your business which is bigger than you may realize.

Don’t believe the conventional wisdom about business. Our culture will tell you:

“Real ministry is only done under the purview of the religious establishment.”
Nonsense. God said. ”Whatever you do, brethren, work at with all your heart as  working for the Lord, not for men, and you’ll receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.” (Col. 4:23) “Whatever you do” includes your business.

“The purpose of a business is to make money to support the religious establishment.”
Nonsense. Jesus taught, in the parable of the talents, that we would be blessed for increasing the wealth entrusted to us, not for giving it away. A Biblical business has far greater reach and more sophisticated purposes then just money.

“The purpose of a business is to spread the gospel.”
Only indirectly. As a business grows and spreads its influence, people are naturally drawn to the sense of God’s presence that permeates your business.

Ian Wynn, Owner / Operator, Ian Wynn Optometry

As an optometrist and someone wanting to honour Jesus I find myself in a perpetual struggle keeping the balance between doing for others as I would have them do for me, and making an income. Your posts are a good encouragement that God wants me in my business and that it can be a blessing to my customers, my family and my Lord. I believe if I seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, all things will be added to me for that purpose but we still have to deal with money, sales and costs.

Our own beliefs and paradigms often hold us back and prevent us from realizing the potential in our businesses. Banish these most common erroneous beliefs from your psyche.

Planning with the Spirit

Human plans often fail, but those created by the Holy Spirit succeed. Here’s how to incorporate the Holy Spirit into your planning process.

Satan often uses our businesses to discourage us. Learn to successfully cope with spiritual attacks on you and your business.



Money is a big part of every business. Should you borrow it from other people? See what the Bible has to say and formulate a strategy for your business.

Biblical businesses are characterized by an intense, relational culture among the stakeholders. Identify the components of that culture, and work to implement it in your business.

Business is ultimately the interaction of people and money into a system. The more effective the systems in your organization, the more likely you are to succeed and prosper. Understand systems and begin to build your systems.
