A lot of Christians just want to hide behind their church doors and pray. Isolating themselves from the socio-economic affairs of life. This is not a good idea. You cannot light up a world you are isolated from. Consider 1 Corinthians 5:9-10 (ESV), “I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.” This implies that the Bible does not support the idea of cowering away on the sidelines. Doing nothing. While the sexually immoral, greedy businessmen and scammers run free. You are to engage and beat them at their game.
A lot of Christians struggle in their business or career. While on the surface, it looks like they are suffering for Christ’s sake. The reality is that they have been foolish. You do not have to be the Christian that fails in entrepreneurship and career. We have a rich history of believers that have made an impact in industry, economy and government. They did it without compromising their Christian stance. You must be humble enough to learn how the world works. You cannot ignore the world or isolate yourself from it. That is nothing more than a recipe for poverty and unfruitfulness.
Every unrighteousness is a sin. You are supposed to operate as the salt and light of your world. You are not supposed to join them in their immorality, greed, and scams. There is a grace from heaven that you should channel into your world. Your mission is to steer your world towards where God wants. Without compromising your Christian values. This takes a lot of discipline and integrity. With a heart rooted in God’s love, and guided by divine principles, engage your world. You join the workforce, and within three years, every stakeholder sees your good work. And they give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
