"A man's gift makes room for him And brings him before great men." ~ Proverbs 18:16
I am always on the hunt for new insights and revelation that God gives in relation to business and entrepreneurship. A few years ago Laurie Beth Jones wrote a powerful book entitled, Jesus, Entrepreneur: Using Ancient Wisdom and Life Your Dreams. But it wasn't until recently that I had the opportunity to read through this book and I ran across some powerful nuggets.
One of things that she writes about is the importance of Christians to share their gifts and talents in business, because their spiritual values bring something special and unique to the marketplace.
She also discusses the seven gifts that business brings to the world, including:
GIFT ONE: Dignity
Christians in business should all be interested in bringing God's presence into the marketplace through your daily transactions and conversation. He wants to use you right where you spend most of your time everyday to demonstrate His love and grace to the people in your circle of influence. Don't miss the awesome opportunity to impact lives through the work that you do. You and your business are a gift to the world!
