For Christian entrepreneurs who want to venture into business, it is important to understand what God thinks about business ethics. This will allow them to manage firms that can give glory to God.
In several instances in Scripture, it is mentioned that God is not pleased with unfair and deceiving practices such as faulty balances. It is His desire for a believer to reflect Christ in his life, not just inside the church, but also in his profession. Otherwise, his testimony as a Christian would be tainted, and Christ’s name is put to shame.
The Bible also prohibits business ventures from leading their customers to sin. Stores selling liquor and dealers selling drugs are just two examples. The bottom line is this: treat your business as you would your life – it should show the holiness of your Savior.
