The Business Life and Christianity

    It has come to my attention that many Christian people who own businesses tend to leave Christianity out of it. In my opinion, someone who is truly saved cannot help but seep Christ through every part of their lives! The love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). If you're keeping Jesus separate from your business because you're afraid it will hurt your profit in some way... you are deceived. You can't serve Jesus and yourself, money, or any other thing (Matthew 6:24). You can only choose one. 

    Though separating your "Christianity" and your business may seem to work better for you now, it is only for a season. Even if you heap onto yourself riches in this lifetime, you'll regret it in the next. However, if you choose Christ, He will sustain you. It's not a bribe - Christianity comes with the promise of life and life more abundantly, blessings, and grace to be sufficient, but also persecutions. Yes, there is a cost to follow Christ... So, is eternal life worth it? 

    Jesus Christ is my Savior, and if He never did another thing for me, the shedding of His blood on the cross was enough. He is my King, He is my Lord, and I'm not ashamed to have it plastered all over me, my life, and even my business (Matthew 10:33). "I choose 'trials'" - like Bro. Tommy would say. (Meaning, though trials may come my way and I know I might be asking for it, I choose to go through them anyway.) (2 Timothy 3:12)
