Nearly 80 percent of all divorced couples between the ages of 20 and ^30 list financial difficulties as the primary cause of their separation.  Even ^some of the most dedicated Christians are facing the perils of bankruptcy and overextended ^credit. We are seeing just some of the effects of living in a materialistic society.

There are five basic business function that together constitute the activities ^of a Christian business. Function 1: Evangelism. There is no toll more effective ^for evangelism than a business dedicated to the lord. Not only can employees be ^won by a dedicated owner or manager, but, similarly, so can suppliers, creditors ^and customers. The key here is the walk, not the talk. Function 2: Discipleship. ^Evangelism is sharing Christ's message of salvation with the lost. Discipleship ^is training Christians to grow stronger in their faith. In a business, that effort ^should be directed by the owner or manager to those immediately under his authority. ^It is they who will then be able to disciple the others under their authority. "And ^the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these ^entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also" (2Timothy 2:2). ^Function3: To fund God's work. A business is the best tool for funding God's work ^ever created. A property run business can generate excess capital to meet needs, ^share the gospel, and still continue its operations day-by-day. There are many creative ^ways to use such funds to further God's work. Obviously, giving to your church and ^to ministries is good and necessary to do God's work, but there are many ministries ^available within the business itself. For instance, several Christian businessmen ^have hired full-time counselors who work with employees who have personal problems. ^Function4: Provide for needs. A business must provide for the needs of the employees, ^creditors, customers, and owners. That is done by paying salaries, paying for supplies ^and equipment in a timely fashion, and providing a quality product at a fair price. ^In our modern business environment, the principle seems to be meet the owner's needs, ^wants, and desires first, then pay the employees what is necessary to keep them ^off his back. Many creditors are paid late, or not at all, and the customers are ^viewed as a necessary evil. If a Christian business owner accepts meeting needs ^as a normal part of God's plan, his business will play an effective role in evangelism ^and discipleship. Function5: To generate profits. Any business must be able to make ^a profit if it is to continue operations. Sometimes Christians seem to believe that ^God will bless them supernaturally, while they ignore every pretense of good management. ^If you believe that, you haven't studied God's Word very thoroughly. God's Word ^directs us to think and plan. "The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs ^his steps" (Proverbs 16:9)
