Christians, in business, what is the difference in a given business that serves God, and one serving money?
I think about antiques ...a time when
more people followed God in some
way. Then I remember this building
built maybe 70 years ago, WAS
beautiful but now a shambles but
fully rented bringing in that income.
What have you noticed in what a
business is like that follows God
vs. those that exist only to make money.

There is a vast gulf of distance between a business serving god and one serving money.
The one works on the business owners and all they deal with, developing strength of
character and equitable problem solving. Strengthens all it touches.
This type of development comes through the unrelenting attacks that inevitably will
beset a Godly business. So worldly success is not even within the realm of possibility.
So when that weakness/fantasy is discarded, the real enterprise (working on
people/owners) will begin.
The one that serves money can cross-pollinate with any number of peripheral contagions.
Before participants are even aware, they are in deep s***. Guaranteed septic experience.
And such an excremental experience is quite just. Without God the rules are suspended or
even non-existent. Badland territory of spiritual giants/wickedness. This is strife. Hell.
Serving God involves an entire scope of highly principled standards of interaction.
So that there are boundaries in place that clearly delineate equitable dealings.
This is a powerful protection for all involved. The protocols form a template for handling
the most difficult situations.
Godly business builds relations as opposed to crushing them. This is possible due to the
focus being on the Lord and how He is leading rather than on self/money.
A business is also an entity with a type of life of its own. Requires nurturing and only a
Godly approach will edify through myriad situations that inevitably arise - largely in the
form of attacks. This is a form of sanctification or cleansing; keeping the business ethical.

It's because greed boils down to taking things from people. If you're greedy, you won't treat your customers right, and most importantly, you won't treat your employees right either. Eventually, the business will crumble.
