This is the first blog post in my blog dealing with business and faith. It does not necessarily write about both in all its blog post, but the basic goal is to write about the combination of doing business and living for God at the same time.
One of the best things said on this subject ever came from the pen of A.W.Tozer as he wrote the following words: “Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.”
God gives talents and gifts to everyone and not everyone is called to serve as ministers in a church, as pastors or as church leaders in one or another way. Most people are in fact called to live and do business in the world surrounded by all kinds of people. Instead of feeling disappointed about the fact that you have to do such a secular work, open your eyes to the fact that it is not the work you do that determine whether it is sacred or secular, but why you do it! It is time to start working with a goal, to get a vision for your job and to dream of bringing God with you wherever you go and bring his presence, mercy and kindness with you as you meet colleagues and partners.
Since I am interested in everything that deals with SEO, technical stuff and of course business subjects I will often write topics on such subjects, and they will not always have anything to do with faith itself. They will simple contain information and advices on different questions and I will share my thoughts on important and not at all that important matters. Other time I will close the technical and business world all out and simply write some words on thoughts about faith, the Bible, Jesus and encouragements I have received from books, teachings and sermons I have seen on the web.
My prayer as I start this blog is that it will be a blessing to many and that it will encourage and help people find joy in their everyday life, in their jobs, in their family and that the advices and articles later written will also help you get more successful in your job, your blog writing and whatever task God has destined for you in your life!
