|Bible Question: what short of Business is recommended by Bible. I need some guidance in term of Phase so that I dont go from the way of Lord. Please do help|
Bible Answer: All work is sacred. There is no such thing as a profession or business that is better or best. Not even full time ministry or missionary service is "better" than any so-called secular job. Adam was created to do work, even before the fall in Genesis 1-3.
God has given you gifts and talents, and what ever you feel "called" to or have a passion for, do it with all your passion as to the Lord.
If you work for someone else, do it with conviction, ambition and gratitude. If you work your own business, do it with integrity. If you care for your own children as in a stay-at-home mom/dad, then do it well and with purpose and forethought.
But the idea that there is a better job is simply not correct. There may be a better job for you personally, but that is based on your gifts, talents, and passions.
Please note: I assume you know that jobs which promote sin are not good in anyway.
Col 3:23-24 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.
