Day 21 - Jobs
WHAT’S GOD’S HEART FOR BUSINESS?
Luke 19:11-23: “He called together ten servants and gave each of them money worth four month’s wages. He said, ‘Do business with this until I return.’”
Deuteronomy 28:12: “The Lord will open up for you his own well-stocked storehouse…”
I know a godly man who labored at the business of farming for years. He was diligent at his business and God blessed him and his family in it. As the story goes, he would gather his family and walk the fields before harvest, anointing the plants with oil and praying a good yield over them.
God indeed heard and answered the prayers of this man and his family, and as they continued in their diligent ways God blessed and prospered them and their business ventures.
Over time, more fields were acquired, more crops were planted and more yield came forth, and more employees were hired. This process continued until the man expanded the business beyond planting and harvesting the crops and he began to process his crop into an even more readily marketable product.
The new division of the business prospered and began to process other farmer’s product as well. More orders came in and more product was sold and shipped out. The man continued to be diligent in his business as well as living a life of faith well pleasing to God. This part of the business eventually became a major supplier of french fries to one of the largest chains of restaurants in the United States.
The man has since sold his interest in the business and while he is still living a godly life by faith, he is now enjoying other adventures and different business pursuits. Rest assured he is still diligent at business and still being blessed and prospered by God. He also is quick to be thankful to God and to give God all the glory for all God has done for him.
In what ways is God’s abundant blessing evident in your work?
How does God honor the work of your hands when you are diligent to give him the glory?
Pray that more people turn and give glory to God in their work.
