THEME: BIBLICAL BUSINESS PRINCIPLES
“Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, But he who gathers by labor will increase.”
-Some individuals and organizations create projects to scam and swindle money from people pockets in diverse areas including; real estate industry, precious metals etc. Some create ways to increase financially through dishonest gains. Others develop and resell products, and weigh them through dishonest scales. The Lord says that, dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight (Proverbs 11:1). We are called to trust that if we continue to remain faithful through our business practices God provides for us. God is reminding us that it is better to have a small successful business, but remain faithful to Him the whole time, than to have a big business made out of dishonesty for He does not bless such and they dwindle away. God tell us that is better to have a little with righteousness, than vast revenues without justice. All these are the plans created in the hearts of men, but it is God who directs our steps (Proverbs 16:8-9).
Dear God Almighty Father we appreciate You for You are good and mercies endures to all generations. Only You are good Father we praise Your holy name. We rely on Your righteousness, righteous Judge and depend on Your holiness Everlasting King. There is none but You, only You deserve to be worshipped. May You heal our nation dear Jesus from corruption, and give us leaders who will hearken to Your voice. May You forgive us for any time we have increased financially through dishonest gains and protect us from anyone whose intention could be to swindle us. We humbly ask You to lead us in the way of righteousness and blessings the works of our hands. Only You give the ability to make wealth, may You bless us and increase us. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
