Do it right.

“Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it.” (Proverbs 1:19)

There is a big price to pay for doing things the wrong way. Often it looks like an easy answer; a quick win, cut a few corners, no one will know. But God knows and sees and is concerned.

In business we face many choices of integrity every day. Let’s commit to doing it God’s way and let Him sort out the consequences. Let’s do it right and honor Him.

There is a price to pay for doing it the wrong way and a reward to reap for doing it right. You will know in your heart what is right and what is wrong. His law is now written on your heart, and when we incline our ear to our hearts, we will know what is right

Quick Prayer. “I will always do it the right way Lord, please help me.” Amen

Three Things

“For receiving instruction in prudent behaviour, doing what is right and just and fair.” (Proverbs 1:3)

Here is a quick checklist that should guide all our behaviour in business. Is it right? Is it just? Is it fair? Often these are not considered in a business context, but if we are endeavouring to do it God’s way then this should be our context.

We get these instructions from revelation through the word of God. Sometimes our view of what is just and fair may not be God’s view. But His perspective will help us be prudent and do what is right. How would you like people to describe you? Right , just and fair would be a good start. If our decisions are based on Godly principles, maybe then our witness would be more effective.

Quick Prayer. “Help me to be right just and fair Lord.” Amen
