Wisdom for Business Through Proverbs

If like me, you have pretty much tried everything you can think of, there comes a time when doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result really is the definition of insanity (like Einstein was supposed to have said.)  

James 1:4-6; If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you.  He will not rebuke you for asking

Here is my selection of Proverbs for Business...

Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

11 March 2017, Written by Nigel Maine, Posted in Business, Hits 320

If Jesus wasn't poor, what else have we got wrong about the bible?

Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

This statement is not referring to Jesus being poor.  In fact, he was a craftsman and small businessman before he started His Ministry.  Jesus became poor and took on the curse of poverty when He was crucified on the cross, so that we might become rich both financially and spiritually.  In 2 Corinthians 9:8 it says And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

It is time to take a different look at our environment to see what is affecting it

Why Do Things Go Wrong in Business?

You know the score; someone says something and another gets upset, a deal you've been waiting for goes to a competitor, staff don't do as they're told or there's a problem with the building, sometimes everything seems to be against you for no apparent reason.

In a nutshell, it's not supposed to be this way and, wait for it!!! we're 100% responsible to effect a change. If we wait for God to act, we'll be waiting a long time!

Where does a business fit within Church and the Christian Faith?

Mention business and faith in the same sentence and the prosperity gospel quashes any support

Where does a business fit within Church and the Christian Faith?

My experience to date has been nothing short of total disbelief. How can the church say it supports it's congregations when they won't or can't minister to business people? or have they chased them all away?

Is it because life is simpler if the status quo is maintained (i.e. the pseudo poverty mentality of the organised church) and business people can just pick up their faith like anyone else.

When It Comes to our Finances are we giving to God or the Church?

When there is so much poor teaching about money it is often difficult to know what to do, so most people do nothing!

When It Comes to our Finances are we giving to God or the Church?

Having been self employed since 1987, I can definitely say that I have chased money.  But I thought that's what everyone did, don't they?

The Devil wants us living in poverty and hankering after money! God wants us rich and living in abundance and hankering after Him.  Or put it another way, Satan wants us dead and God wants us for eternity, so what will you choose?
