Business Dedication

DedicatedToThePresenceOfGod

There is nothing wrong with dedicating business. In fact, all these are good and of God as long as we do this in accordance to purpose and  of Him, the author and perfecter of our faith.

Almost all “BUSINESS DEDICATION” asks God’s blessings for our businesses. But most of these dedications can also be easily forgotten simply because the heart of the business owner is focused on the business and not of God. This is why, we want to make it different. We will be asking God for his blessings, and in return give to God what is due to him, the business itself.

Here are some reminders for us as owner, and as witnesses of this special day.

Do Not Let Wealth Hinder Your Service To God

In the book of Matthew 19:24 it says,  “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.”  The passage talks about people who are wealthy but because wealth, it has been harder for them to obey God, to follow Jesus Christ.

Do Not Let Your Hearts Love Money
In the book of 1 Timothy 6:10 it says, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” The Bible has been very clear that the “Love of Money, is the root of all evil.” When we start loving money, it will be the beginning of our spiritual downfall. Love of money is a form of idolatry which is evidenced by covetousness, evil desires, greediness and all other kinds of evil.

Do Not Let Your Focus Turn Away From God

In the book of Ecclesiastes 1:2-3 say,  “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities—all is vanity.  What profit has a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun?” King Solomon in all his splendor, with all his wealth, with all his riches, with all his fame, have seen all these things as vanity under the sun unless that labor is for the Lord.

Conclusion
Where does your desire and purpose of your business rest? Is it to enrich ourselves? Or to give glory to the King who gives it?
