The Bible Is The Best Business Book In The World.✨

The best business book I have read is the Bible. There are countless success stories of wealthy business owners who's business foundation was built on biblical principles.


The bible has a lot to say about business, business owners, wealth, money, greed, contentment, slothfulness, and many other financial and spiritual topics. In today's fast-paced and often cutthroat business world, finding a reliable and ethical guide can be challenging. Yet, for centuries, one book has offered timeless wisdom on business, finance, and ethics: the Bible.

“As my millionaire mentor has shown me, the Bible contains numerous scriptures that provide profound insights into business success.

Because of my mentor's teachings, I have used the financial biblical principles and incorporated good stewardship, trustworthiness, faithfulness into my life and business affairs. I am being rewarded and elevated in many ways because of his biblical teaching in regards to business and my purpose.


Dominating Your Business Success Through Biblical Principles


Here, we'll explore how biblical principles can help you dominate in your business endeavors.


Wisdom and Planning


The Bible emphasizes the importance of wisdom and planning in achieving success. Proverbs 16:3 (KJV) says, "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established." This verse reminds us that when we seek God's guidance and commit our plans to Him, He will help us succeed.


Proverbs 21:5 (KJV) further reinforces this, stating, "The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want." Diligent planning and thoughtful decision-making are crucial in business, leading to prosperity, while haste leads to failure.


Integrity and Honesty


Honesty and integrity are cornerstones of a successful business. Proverbs 11:1 (KJV) teaches, "A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight." In business, this translates to fair dealings and honest practices.

In addition, Proverbs 22:1 (KJV) states, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold." Building a reputation for honesty and integrity is more valuable than accumulating wealth through dishonest means.


Wealth and Contentment


The Bible also offers guidance on wealth and contentment. 1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV) warns, "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." This verse reminds us that while wealth is not inherently evil, the obsessive pursuit of money can lead to unethical behavior and personal downfall.


Conversely, Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) provides a balanced view: "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it." Wealth gained through righteous means, with God's blessing, brings true prosperity and peace.


Hard Work and Diligence


The Bible consistently highlights the value of hard work. Proverbs 12:24 (KJV) states, "The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute." Hard work and diligence lead to leadership and success, while laziness results in subjugation and failure.

Moreover, Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV) advises, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest." This verse encourages us to put our best effort into everything we do, knowing that our time is limited.


Generosity and Stewardship


Generosity and responsible stewardship are also essential principles. Proverbs 11:25 (KJV) says, "The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself." Generosity leads to reciprocal blessings, fostering a cycle of giving and receiving that benefits all.


Additionally, Luke 16:10 (KJV) emphasizes the importance of faithfulness in managing resources: "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much." Being trustworthy and responsible in small matters prepares us for greater responsibilities and rewards.


What's funny as I look back, we were using biblical business principles and not really aware of it:

Matthew 7:7 (KJV) Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. We were selling food out of our kitchen daily to sell to my husband's coworkers at lunch. We had been asking God for a restaurant, my husband coworkers were edging him on to open a restaurant because the food he cooked for them daily was really delicious according to them. Wouldn't you know, we received what we asked for, a year later we were blessed with a large sum of 💲money and went seeking a restaurant and we found it and the doors soon opened.


Matthew 21:22 (KJV) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive: We 🛐prayed and believed that someday we would be owners of a restaurant.


Habakkuk 2:2 (KJV) And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the 👀vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it: Well, I relate that to a business plan. In a business plan you are writing your vision down and making it plain for who ever read it , it will contain your vision, strategies, and plan of execution.


Conclusion


The Bible offers a wealth of wisdom on business and finance that is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. By adhering to principles of wisdom, integrity, hard work, and generosity, you can achieve not only business success but also a fulfilling and ethical life. My millionaire mentor's insights into these scriptures have profoundly impacted my approach to business, demonstrating that the Bible truly is the best business book in the world.
