The bottom Line

Although being a Christian should in one way or the other influence the way you do your business, it shouldn’t keep you entirely out of business. You are supposed to build your business in the ways of Christ and take home what is really yours. Those who believe in God should never steal from other people. Whether the business that you are thinking of starting provides goods or services, its main goal should be something more than just making money. It should positively impact the society and encourage other Christians to venture into business too.
