Your Business Is God’s Business

“God cares about honesty in the workplace; your business is his business.” Proverbs 16:11 (MSG)

God doesn't bless dishonesty. The Bible says, "The Lord demands fairness in every business deal" (Proverbs 16:11 NLT). That includes wages, sales, and taxes. 

If you want God's blessing on your finances, you have to be honest. You can't rip people off. Profit made dishonestly always brings trouble ­– always.

"The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it." (Proverbs 10:22 NIV)

Talk about it

  • Have you ever known anybody who made money, and it just brought trouble? You will always reap what you sow. If you are dishonest with others, it will be returned to you. If you think you haven't been caught, understand that the clock is still ticking. You cannot mock God and get away with it.
  • Be honest with your finances: “It is the Lord's blessing that makes you wealthy” (Proverbs 10:22 TEV).
