Does your church need to learn how to partner up with business?
Researching my book, HWJDB How Would Jesus Do Business? brought up an interesting issue. Reading about Christian OR Jewish businesses revealed a chasm between both the business people and the clergy. That lead to the need for a partnership between the church/synagogue and business that seemed to requires efforts.
Yet Jesus apprenticed and successfully ran, without sin, a “general contracting” business for 18 years. He apprenticed from age 12 (when He got out of school) to 20 (when it was expected to start His business), and then ran it until age 30 when He began His Ministry.
Well, if you want more involvement, here are some suggestions for both the church and businesses to come together.

When looking into history, we find something that happened that seems to have accelerated both the productivity and wealth of a society. It was not happenstance, it was grounded in God’s Word when the Founding Fathers constructed a new nation with new principles.
So let’s take a look at this short video, “Why Does 1% of History Have 99% of the Wealth?”
In our journey of life, we too often see or want to see that we’ve “arrived” at our life’s destination. We’ve “made it” and no longer do we have to struggle. That we can rest and take it easy. That there is no more for us to do.
Coast. Relax. Retire.
But that is not the case.
Far from it.
God wants to lead us further down life’s path toward not only the unknown, but to do greater good. Below is my latest guest blog article that talks about what God has in store for us and how we’re to see ourselves. Our life is not a destination, but a true journey that He is leading.
