The Holy Bible makes it clear that God wants the best of us to take care, and look after the rest of us. You think of Prophet Samuel who said, “Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way” (1 Samuel 12:23 ESV). You think about the Psalmist that wrote, “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked” (Psalm 82:3-4 ESV). Spiritual growth and maturity is reflected by the extent of your stewardship. Your business is a platform for your stewardship. Your business is your outreach to take responsibility for the growth and fulfillment of others. Making money from it is just a side effect.
If you aspire to become your best possible, the secret is to take responsibility for others. When you live with a burden that the failure and success of others depends upon your ability to do better. You will tap into a deeper source of motivation. When you take responsibility for others, and embrace your watch; your stewardship over people. You will experience God in a new dimension. God begins to empower you spiritually, making resources available to you. This will make you even more productive. Remember: He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength (Isaiah 40:29 ESV).
Money follows value created. When you focus on serving people in your business, and empowering them to become the very best they can be. You will end up creating a tremendous amount of value. Think about your favourite businesses for example, you like them because they are impacting you and delivering so much value to your life. It becomes more than a financial transaction. It is a relationship. An obsession with making money will compromise how you watch over your world. Be obsessed with delivering more value than anyone else, and you will see God blessing you more than anyone else. You start by identifying the people God wants you to serve. Serve them through business. You will be fulfilled.
