Called To Business: How to Control Money as a Believer

Luke 12:13-34 tells so much about businesses, the wisdom of men in calculating profits sponsored by heaven and the evaluation of money before God. similarly, all through scriptures, God at various times interrupted the concept of money with heavenly principles and till date, He still shows forth new dimensions in business operations.

Starting up a business involves a very deep thought process and while it is true that money could come out of everything and anything so long you follow basic principles of money, the believer in Christ must learn better that as a believer, you should never compare your wealth or success in a business with an unbeliever. The fact that God is creative and that you should be creative in converting every situation into profit is true and good - but while God doesn’t want you to be greedy and love money, He still cares for you. 
Who says God hasn’t called believers into wealth?

When I discovered that I was only trying to do many things in my own way and that I had missed it all along, I began to unlearn many things about money, wealth creation and business. It was at this point that I fully understood God’s word that the Earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof. I began to first understand that God is not a poor father and so, we should not be poor either. However, this call remains tgat we learn from the rich old fool while we run our businesses and create wealth by the creative DNA of God in us. These lessons are not far-fetched. I have listed a few here.

How can a Believer Control Money?
First, the believer must understand that a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions. The knowledge of this will help Christians to be guarded against greed. Also, believers must be careful of self and understand seasons. While you remain profit oriented, be open to give out. The farmer learns what it is to store grain and to disperse it because there are seasons. So, if because of self needs, he chooses to store grain meant for disposal, he heaps coal on his head.

Finally, as believers, we must be rich towards God. Learn that everything in your business is for God only before you. He owns all and has only put little in your custody to mange resourcefully.
