Faith and Business – How Faith Can Help You Succeed

Succeeding in business is never easy, no matter the circumstances. From day-to-day tasks to unforeseen setbacks, the work never stops, and it can get quite stressful. Even if you’re doing everything right and you have talented staff around you, sometimes you need an extra push to improve your business. 

For many entrepreneurs, faith provides that little spark needed to drive their business ambition. Whether it’s a daily reminder that you’re on the right path, or it’s support and guidance through dark times, faith can be an essential tool for business people. 

Having a sense of purpose in life is important for people’s health and wellbeing. A busy lifestyle can eat away at your enthusiasm for work, family, and other endeavors. Faith in a higher power gives us a greater purpose that we can use to succeed in various business ventures. 

If you are looking to redirect your focus as an entrepreneur, here are five ways that your faith can positively impact your business.

5 Ways Your Faith Can Positively Impact Your Business

1. Decision making

Major business decisions are not made lightly. They often have repercussions that directly impact your life and the livelihoods of others. While it’s important to take your emotions out of business decisions, they require a lot of thought and consideration. Through prayer and faith, you can gain more clarity with regard to these choices.

In business, there are endless decisions to be made. Whether you’re deciding to sign up for online mailboxes or implementing a certain marketing strategy, you can have assurance that you’re making the right decisions.

Knowing that you are being guided by God in all your business decisions gives you the confidence needed to follow your intuition. Have faith and trust in your decisions. 

2. Establishing business morals and ethics

Most major religions and faiths have morals, integrity, and ethics built into their foundations. Knowing that you are running your organization with sincerity gives you a real sense of accomplishment. 

Several industries are driven solely by financial ambition, leading to a serious lack of ethics and integrity. For a person of faith, it can be difficult to justify having involvement in such industries. 

Being a servant leader vs self-serving in a world that seems to reward the latter can be difficult.

Follow your beliefs and establish business morals and ethics that align with your faith.

3. Inspiration From Prayer and the Word

Following the bible and praying regularly can be a great source of inspiration. While inspiration and motivation are temporary, daily practicing of faith can keep you inspired continuously. 

If you work with others, you can use prayer and religion to inspire those around you. It’s important to help others as well as yourself, in life and business.

4. Take lessons from failures

A big part of faith is trusting that you are in safe hands. What appear as failures at a surface level, are often part of a greater plan for you. Failing to succeed initially is part of a long term success story

The same can be said for business. Treat the whole process as a journey and ensure that you learn from your failures

5. Networking and building relationships

Faith opens up many doors for people. As a common bond, a common faith breaks down barriers and provides a social outlet. Faith-based communities are full of people from all walks of life. There are few better ways to network and build working relationships than through religious communities.

Bible Verses About Faith and Business

Psalm 112:5 CJB

Things go well with the person who is merciful and lends, who conducts his affairs with fairness;

Proverbs 22:16 TLV

The one who oppresses the poor to increase his own gain, and the one who gives to the rich—both end in poverty.

Jeremiah 22:13 CJB

“Woe to him who builds his palace unfairly, its upper rooms by injustice; who makes his neighbor work for free and will not give him his wages;"

James 5:4 CJB

Listen! The wages you have fraudulently withheld from the workers who mowed your fields are calling out against you, and the outcries of those who harvested have reached the ears of Adonai-Tzva’ot.

Proverbs 13:11 TLV

Wealth gained by fraud dwindles, but he who gathers by labor increases it.

Proverbs 16:8 TLV

Better a little with righteousness than much income without justice.

1 Timothy 5:18 TLV

For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,” and, “The worker is worthy of his wage.”

Colossians 3:17 TLV

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Yeshua, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

2 Thessalonians 3:10-11 CJB

For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: if someone won’t work, he shouldn’t eat! We hear that some of you are leading a life of idleness — not busy working, just busybodies!

Proverbs 15:22 CJB

Without deliberation, plans go wrong; but with many advisers, they succeed.

Faith and Business go together like hand and glove

So as you can see, trying as a believer to run a business separate from your faith just runs counter to it. You should absolutely bring your faith and the Word into everything you do in business to not only succeed but to show Yeshua to others, whether you have a traditional business or a blog.
