|What if the one you always regret, was the one who can help you?|
Many websites I saw (espicially those who are on the top search engines result), do
not really explain how can a Christian quotes help you grow from your online/offline carrier. They only provide a Bible verses and nothing else. That is why it makes so complicated for novices to understand what is the real meaning of it on the holy scriptures.
Let me give you an example of a Christian quotes for business I saw on the web (but with out their meaning).
"A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches."
When you read the Bible quoted above for the first time, the only thing that will come to your mind is the word "riches" (especially business persons), and you'll think that being rich in this world is a thing that Christians should be achieving. Well, you are absolutely wrong! Bible does not want you to become wealthy in this earthly manner, even our Lord Jesus Christ preached about this issue saying,
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. "
Our Lord clearly condemned the earthly wealth based on that particular verses, so maybe you are wondering right now and asking yourself, is the Bible verses contradicted to each other? Of course not. The Holy Scripture was made and compiled by only one Spirit (which is the Father Almighty) as written in the book of Isaiah,
"Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them."
And in 2nd book of Peter he again prove that the holy book was not made by man, quoting,
"Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."
2 Peter 1:20-21
Statement of God cannot be contradicted, the only contrast was when man translated it by their own knowledge. If it is not the wealth of this earth, then what kind of treasures God want us to own? We can find the answers at the book of Matthew,
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. "
God want us to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things (including being rich or wealthy) will be added to us.
People wants to get rich quickly and thinking about making money all day and forgetting to give thanks to the One who gave them life and knowledge. This is the treasure God didnt want us to have. God want us to treasure Him first before anything else. The reason why most people failed from their career is because, they forgot the meaning of being focus in what they do, and what they feel. They forgot to pray and have faith from the One who can blessed their work. If they only do what Isaiah said,
"For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed."
In everything you do, you will always succeed because God will help you and will never let you down.
Remember what happened to Job? Job was a great and rich man in his time but God test his faith, how strong his foundation. God took everything in him (including his wealth) except for his life, until his wife condemned him and told him,
"Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die."
Her wife want him to slide his faith from God and die but Job answered her wicked wife,
"But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips."
Job does not take the trial of God so hard, but instead, he retain his faith on Him and succeded from it. You know what happened to Job?
"So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses."
Job become wealthy in his end, wealthier than his beggining, because God blessed Job on being faithful in Him. Job never mind for being an earthly rich man, instead, he think first of God and His righteousness and that was the reason why Job successfully overcome God's trial.
What are the lesson to be learn on this Christian quotes topic for your business?
As a Christian entrepreneur, we must not always think of earthly doings. Money can not build a strong foundation, but faith can make a person focus from achieving their goal and that makes them strong. This is how a word of God can help improve not just your business but also your personality.
