Separation of Business & Faith?

I would like to tell you something about God. He is kind, gracious and loving. He gives gifts freely. But he also has a plan for the world and for your life that he’s actively pursuing.

Money, power and influence are all tools of engagement on the earth. But in business, we are taught to never pick an ideological side; to be neutral; to separate church and state. That’s all well and good but if you believe God is the source of your wealth, things are not as cut and dried. The children of darkness are never confused about where their loyalties lie and to whom they dedicate their income. Why are the children of light conflicted?

Someday, God will put you in a position where you have to choose. He’s testing you – your commitment to him (the one who made you) or to your status, reputation and possessions.

Don’t fail this test because you see, God won’t stop blessing you. His gifts are without repentance. He is not petty. But he will take note of your betrayal and begin shopping for someone else to use. You will invariably delay his programme. God is limited by the availability of humans. Sometimes an entire programme is delayed as God waits for someone else to be born, grow up and pass his own test of loyalty.

You cannot use the income God has blessed you with to perpetrate acts that advance the kingdom of darkness. That is betrayal not business.
